Times of great change hold even greater possibilities.

Leading communities in the midst of a changing and fragmenting culture can result in exhaustion, overwhelm, and disillusionment—or in shared hope, endless abundance, and regenerative action. We need to change the way we engage one another. We need transformation.

Begin by accessing these resources:

Clergy Burnout Report

Though burnout in church leadership is common, it is too often unnamed and overlooked. This resource can help you identify common causes of burnout and support you as you discover ways to move toward greater health.

Daily Examen

The Daily Examen is a technique of prayerful reflection on the events of the day in order to detect God’s presence and discern his direction for us. It is an ancient Ignatian practice that can help us see God’s hand at work in our whole experience.

The Resilience Report

The Resilience Report is a 25-page document intended to outline what resilience actually is and what it might look like in practice, and to begin a discussion on its theological and practical implications for Christian leaders.

To transform your community, first, transform yourself.

Since 2017, our team here at The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology has designed offerings to support community gatherers of all sorts–pastors, artists, social entrepreneurs, educators, and nonprofit leaders. We equip leaders and their teams to transform their service of God and neighbor in difficult contexts–and in the process, to be transformed.
