These are exciting days at Oasis. Along with launching our new website we continue to expand. We continue to hold our small group retreats in addition to our Individual Focused Encounters and our proactive/preventative Health Check Workshops for Pastor/Spouses and Elder/Leaders and Spouses. Most recently we did a Marriage and Ministry Health Check Workshop with the pastoral staff at one church. We applaud the lead pastor who wants to make sure that his pastoral staff is healthy. We all agree that it is not rocket science…healthy pastors produce healthy churches and healthy missionary leaders produce healthy missionaries.
Many churches, mission agencies, and other ministries respond only when a crisis occurs. At Oasis we believe responding in a proactive way can prevent much of the negative fall out that occurs with leadership breakdown. Our goal is to connect regularly with leaders and help them deal with the challenges that come there way. The result is a preservation of ministry longevity for them and their ministries. Everyone benefits with proactive/preventative care. We will always need a place for ministry leaders to go when the experiences of leadership hit hard, but having a proactive/preventative arm is clearly a wise use of resources.
