From the Healthy Pastors Initiative of the E P Wahl Centre comes a new profound and unique retreat that aims to address some of the deepest and most personal needs of those in ministry! Replenish is a time to come away to re-centre on the Triune God and on the unique way He has fashioned and called us. In this short video, Rev. Sam Nikkel explains the unique focus of this all-new retreat.
In the midst of the relentless pace of ministry and ceaseless demands of our leadership roles, it is possible to lose clarity of our identity; this can lead to painful questions about whether we are even called to ministry. God has created us uniquely and His desire is for us to fulfill our calling while being aligned to our authentic design.
Replenish will provide a safe environment for examination of the foundational dimensions of the pastor’s inner world, including;
- Christ-centered identity
- personal and Kingdom calling
- the discipline of hearing God
- the discipline of ongoing processing of our personal narrative.
Replenish is being offered for the first time, and offers an authentic context to experience renewal for those who are in need of ministry refreshment.
