stoptheburnout.com a Free Retreat for those in Ministry to Stop the Burnout
We lose more pastors in the USA on a daily basis than we lose missionaries in foreign lands, due to burnout. This is a real problem but it is one we can help put an end to.
A real problem.
Statistics show we lose multiple numbers of those in ministry, within the USA from burnout - Daily.
Those in ministry suffer alone, in silence, because everyone assumes they have no everyday real life problems, This could not be more wrong. They are human too and face the same daily trials we do, and sometimes many more because of their role and what is expected of them. They do not have the support system that we do, usually and they are expected to be there for us, yet no one is there for them when they are hurting and crying alone.
Stoptheburnout.com is all about helping those in ministry get the break they need, from their 60+ hour 24/7 on call life and get away to rest and regroup for the future. This will help bring burnout to an end.
Many pastors make less than those within their congregation. Many work a second job just to be able to continue ministering. We only see the ones on tv who make more money .. we forget this is the rare ones, not the common factor. Most people in ministry live day to day, paycheck to pay check and 100% by faith, to make ends meet. This adds to their stress as well.
Stoptheburnout.com will supply transportation as well as accomodations, meals and entertainment for pastors and other ministry roles, and their wives, for a 10 day getaway.
But - they need us all to help us make this come true. They are seeking sponsors for this tax deductible work, to donate enough funds to purchase the grounds which are turnkey, well priced and ready to roll ... and then to continue sponsoring the work as we are able to continue offering it to more and more pastors and others in ministry roles within the body of Christ.
They hope to serve 1000 annually.
They can do this if we will all help. It takes less than one would think to do this type of work and we have the workers who are ready ... all they need now is you... sharing the message to others by liking their facebook page and sharing the fund raising campaign links in your emails, blogs, articles, etc., by praying and by giving all you have to give to help support the work.
Let each of us pray and ask God what we can do to help bring rest to His workers.
They are located in sunny Arizona so they can host them year round for relaxation and hopefully a little bit of fun while they are there ... so those who come can return to their people refreshed and revived to rekindle their passion for Christ and for the body.
There is an indiegogo campaign running, under religion
They also have a gofundme campaign going
