Personal Life of the Leader Seminar


Since ministry stressors are unique, we offer a Personal Life of the Leader Seminar that will transform, refocus and refresh the ministry leader.  These intensives are based on Dr Archibald Hart’s world-known ‘Personal Life of the Pastoral Leader’ D.Min. intensive classes.  If you work in a ministry setting, this seminar will challenge, re-center and renew you.


We also offer a 'Leader Renewal Journey' for ministry leaders who are stressed out, burned out or dealing with painful transitions, crisis or failures in ministry.  We offer an initial couples intensive followed by 3 months of individual counseling for both husband and wife with caring support to get you through the restoration and healing journey.  This is followed with life coaching, counseling and spiritual support.  It is based on Dr Archibald Hart's well-known personal life of the ministry leader counseling curriculum.
