Counseling Tips For Pastors And Ministry Leaders - Practical Help From Christian Counselors

Do you want to care for the people in your ministry more effectively? This podcast will equip you to do exactly that. The reality of Christian ministry is that it can be exhausting, overwhelming, and lonely. This is certainly true for pastors, but it is also true for all Christians in ministry! And every Christian has a ministry of some kind. From youth leaders to Bible study leaders to loving your next-door neighbor, we are all in ministry to the people around us. And those people are hurting. The emotional struggles, mental health needs, and relationship challenges of today’s world are big. Millions of people struggle with anxiety, depression, divorce, abuse, and stress. And when people are hurting, the Church is meant to help. … But do you really feel equipped to do that? The mission of this podcast is to EQUIP and ENCOURAGE you in your ministry leadership. Whether you are pastoring a mega church or the far more common smaller church, or maybe you’re working at a nonprofit and leading a book club on your lunch break - you want to be able to love and care for the people around you. Every episode will EQUIP you with practical skills, ideas, tools, or resources to address the “counseling” related needs of the people in your ministry. Each episode will also seek to ENCOURAGE you in the important ministry work you are doing for the Lord’s glory. Your host: This show is hosted by iHope Christian Care and Counseling, a nonprofit counseling center in Florence, S.C.

At some point in life, everyone will struggle with conflict. The church is not immune! Even in the best ministry, there are different personalities, priorities, and preferences. Conflict will happen. 
 
So what’s a pastor or leader to do?
 
Of course, the top urgency is to start with prayer. Pray for the other person, for the situation, for your own reaction. Be quick to listen and slow to speak. Seek to understand.
 
But if conflict is escalating, there are action steps that can help. Let’s look together at 4 steps that will help you manage and resolve conflict in your ministry (and probably every other area of life too).

One of the biggest problems in ministry leadership is burnout. The demands of ministry are high and the stress, emotions, and responsibilities weigh on us. 
 
And one of the best things that can help prevent burnout and keep you passionate about the ministry work you are doing is setting boundaries.
 
We all need healthy boundaries! Jesus had them, and we need them. 
 
Join us today for some practical tips in how to think about boundaries in your life, family, and ministry work. Next week, we’ll dive deeper into how to live out these boundaries… but you can’t live them out if you aren’t even clear about what they are.

But without good interpersonal skills, it is unlikely that people will feel loved by you... despite your best intentions. 
 
So join us today for a look at 3 keys to good interpersonal communication - and be working on this in your ministry and relationships!

The mission of this podcast is to EQUIP and ENCOURAGE you in your ministry leadership. Whether you are pastoring a mega church or the far more common smaller church, or maybe you’re working at a nonprofit and leading a book club on your lunch break - you want to be able to love and care for the people around you. 
 
Every episode will EQUIP you with practical skills, ideas, tools, or resources to address the “counseling” related needs of the people in your ministry. Each episode will also seek to ENCOURAGE you in the important ministry work you are doing for the Lord’s glory.
