Leadership and Soul Care

Inside the Sept/Oct 2013 Issue

Leadership and Soul Care

You could say this issue is preventative, encouraging pastors and leaders to avoid burnout, but it’s much more than that. The stories, ideas and interviews you’ll discover in this issue from voices like Mindy Caliguire, Pete Scazzero, Bob Goff and many others, serve as an invitation to experience the freedom, joy and power that comes from abiding in Christ.

Long-time readers of Outreach will recognize a distinct voice rising again and again from the pages of this issue: Your voice. Pulse tells the stories of creative outreach—they’re your stories. Flip to the back of the magazine and you’ll find church-tested ideas for any church, any size—your church, your ideas. And in this issue, 23 leaders relate the best soul-care advice they’ve received (or given).

Whenever we turn to leaders and readers to share lessons learned, those thoughts are expressed with disarming candor. So we commend another issue of your own magazine to you, confident you’ll find in it hope and encouragement for the journey.
