Grace Break Workshops

​Are you seeking ways to thrive in ministry for the long-haul?  Maybe you​  are tired, feeling the pressures of a 24/7 on-call ministry, or stressed at leading your church to make disciples for Jesus Christ in today's world? 

GRACE BREAK: Planning Your Renewal Leave is for you.  

Led by Big Sigh Ministries Inc. co-founders Jacqueline and Jack Tookey, this workshop will help you plan your leave, pattern your leave after Christ, and seek congregational, district, family, and financial support.  Upon completion of our one-day time together, you will have the knowledge, tools, and freedom to take the leave you need to better serve Jesus Christ and the church.
