CPR Celebrating Pastors in Recovery

Yes! Pastors can have healing from their own hurts, habits and hang-ups. Would you like to have a fresh start in 2015 in a safe place?
Have you ever . . .
Preached a sermon and noticed that it was delivered with anger instead of passion?
Lost your joy, found that pastoral ministry was not fun anymore?
Felt burned out?
Felt that the grace you preached was not a grace that you could give to yourself?
Realized that you had issues that were hindering your own spiritual growth?
If you are experiencing any of the above, Celebrate Recovery for pastors might be for you. Call Pat Hand at 279-2353 or Bob Belford at 450-9367 for more info.
Meetings will begin Wednesday, March 4, at noon; lunch will be served. Pat Hand, Pastor of Woodland Hills Church and Bob Belford, Associate Pastor of Woodland Hills Church, are co-hosting. The meeting will be held at Pastor Bob’s house at 1027 New Stock Road, Weaverville. That’s 2.3 miles from the Walmart in Weaverville.
