Drained in Ministry?

Pastors and other Christian leaders: do you ever get discouraged in ministry? Do you feel like you spend so much of your time giving of yourself that you feel drained at times? We all need times of refreshment and encouragement—and perhaps pastors and other Christian leaders most of all, it seems. Times of fellowship with other church leaders can be encouraging—and can strengthen the Christian faith.

At Answers in Genesis, we understand this drain on Christian leaders. It’s one of the reasons that last year we created our first national pastors’ conference, “Answers for Pastors,” and we had about 400 people attend. We’ve now created another opportunity to provide pastors and other church leaders with a time of renewal and revitalization, and it will happen . . . here at the Creation Museum, in October.

On October 18–20, Christian leaders will gather at our renowned Creation Museum for three days of inspiration, fellowship, and teaching—and, of course, the opportunity to tour the museum (as a part of the registration fee). And the cost? Much lower than most pastors’ conferences that last three days, plus special sessions (and a discount) that are offered to the wives of the Christian leaders who will be attending! There’s no big drain on your pocketbook.

This conference will be conducted in the new 1,000-seat auditorium/multipurpose room at the Creation Museum that will be opened this summer. What a great opportunity to spend time at the Creation Museum, relax, and be fed in such a wonderful environment. And there are special programs for your wives.

The speakers? They include:

Al MohlerDr. Al Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville (your pastor will recognize the name). SBTS is one of the largest seminaries in the world. Dr. Mohler has been recognized by such magazines as Time and Christianity Today. Called “an articulate voice for conservative Christianity at large” by the Chicago Tribune, Dr. Mohler’s mission is to address contemporary issues from a consistent and explicit Christian worldview.

Other speakers include Brad Bigney, a dynamic Bible conference speaker and pastor of Grace Fellowship in Florence, Kentucky; Pastor Don Landis, chairman of the board for Answers in Genesis; and AiG speakers Dr. Jason Lisle, Dr. Tommy Mitchell, Dr. Terry Mortenson, Dr. Andrew Snelling, Mike Riddle, Steve Ham, Dr. Dave Menton, and Dr. Georgia Purdom (she will do special sessions for wives, along with international speaker and author, Karen Haught).

See www.answersforpastors.org for more details.

Would you please do me a favor? Please forward this blog item to your pastor and other Christian leaders in your church and tell them about this fantastic conference—and that visiting the Creation Museum (right next door to the conference auditorium) is included. Thank you for doing that.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
