In this webinar, four CRC leaders offer words of advice for self-care. The leaders are: Gary Brouwers, Pastor of Peace CRC in Cedar Rapids, IA; Dave DenHaan, Ministry Consultant for Pastor Church Resources; Sarah Roelofs, Director of Chaplaincy & Care; and Cecil VanNiejenhuis, Co-Director Pastor Church Resources.
These are crazy times and leading is exhausting. How do we lead and care for others and make sure we take care of ourselves? Listen for hopeful encouragement and practical resources.
