Provisions for Pastors Presents: "The Pastor's Identity in Christ: The Key to Keeping your Head & Persevering in Ministry"

On Monday, October 20 Provisions for Pastors is presenting a day-long Seminar led by Dr. Robert Davis Smart from Christ Church, PCA in Normal, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. This seminar will be broken into four sessions with breaks and a lunch. The topic is described as follows: "One of the main reasons for the intense craziness, frequent discouragement, and lack of joy in ministry leadership is the loss of our deep and solid sense of who God says we are; we forget to apply the Gospel to ourselves, losing perspective and stability needed to finish well. This forum offers four sessions that focus on how to serve out of one's true identity in Christ. The church leader will be equipped and empowered to take thoughts captive, to overcome the lies and accusations of the Evil One, and to keep a biblical sense of identity amidst the challenges of ministry. Please see our Events page to register.
