Emotionally Healthy Mentoring

I really enjoyed hosting the Australian Christian Mentoring Network’s training seminar in Adelaide today.  The keynote speaker was Keith Farmer who led two sessions on Emotional Health in Ministry.  Tony Ling (a friend from Tassie days) and now senior pastor at Victor Harbour Baptist Church led a session outlining his doctoral work on burnout in clergy.  During the afternoon we workshopped some mentoring resources and worked through a case study on emotional exhaustion. 

Members of the network in breakout discussion groups. 

The ACMN website has further materials however I have linked a number of resources I spoke about today to my own site.
