Whether you are a member of the clergy, a director of religious education, a volunteer catechist or teacher, parish social minister, diocesan employee, a Catholic school employee, youth minister, music minister, or one of countless other irreplaceable members of the Body of Christ, this book is for you. It combines spiritual and psychological principles to present a framework for preventing and managing stress in the unique environment of ministry. As a clinical psychologist in diocesan ministry, Joseph White has often been asked to present workshops on this topic to a variety of ministry leaders and volunteers in the Church. This book draws upon some of what he has presented in these workshops, as well as what he has heard from those who have attended. The goal is to have people in ministry related work find the suggestions offered in this book both practical and relevant to the work they do.
Does God really care about His servants? Yes! Do we care for our people who are serving the Lord in cross-cultural ministry? The Reducing Missionary Attrition Project (ReMAP), launched by World Evangelical Fellowship Missions Commission, seeks to answer that question in this important study. This book utilizes the findings of a 14-nation study done by ReMAP and will help supply some very encouraging answers. This book was published in partnership with the World Evangelical Alliance.
