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.

Our Planning Your Renewal Leave workshops are currently scheduled on an as-needed basis. If you want to attend one of our workshops, please contact us at the Contact Us page (link above) with your request. If you want to know more about the workshop, click the link below.
