We don't need anyone to tell us that church leaders are busy, often overloaded and overworked. As tasks pile up, too often the first thing to go is regular, one-on-one time spent with God. Attend to everyone else first, we think, and I'll get to 'me' when I can. But this not only cheats ourselves but also those to whom we minister. Only a spiritually healthy leader can lead others into spiritual health.
This 38-page resource lays out the case for the importance of regularly assessing your spiritual health, as well as practical guidelines for how to do so. It also offers resources for going about the work of developing spiritual health so you can effectively minister to others.
