“‘And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
Mark 12:30-31 (ESV)
One of our 2018-21 initiatives focuses on wellness. We seek to provide resources that promote wellness among church workers, their families, and congregations. How will you be well?
Pastor Wismar assists the president in his administrative responsibilities and provides counsel and guidance to congregations and church staff in times of transition, conflict or crisis. He works closely with the ministerial health committee to provide wellness resources for our District church workers.
Pastor Wismar’s reading recommendation:
Holding Up the Prophet’s Hand by Bruce M. Hartung
The book helps congregations understand the stressors and pitfalls of professional church workers and offers helpful strategies for how congregations can come alongside their church workers in a consistent way.
