Doug & Leanne Clark, Nisland, SD
We had a family from Colorado here for six days, helping us do landscaping at the church. This was a great encouragement to us. They run a free pastors’ & missionaries’ retreat home, and I asked him to share about this ministry with the congregation. Some of the numbers that he shared regarding pastors leaving the ministry were astounding-some 1500 every year in the U.S. due to burnout! The overwhelming response they have had from pastors to stay at the retreat, called Engedi Retreat, seems to confirm the great need for ministry to encourage and care for pastors!
