WHAT ARE WE REBUILDING?

Rebuild consists of 12 chapters broken up into 4 units, focal areas of the pastor's rebuilding process

Rebuild your PSYCHE

Burnout in ministry is beyond traumatic. Before you can begin tackling the burnout and seeking recovery and restoration from it, dealing with and moving past the trauma are of critical importance.

Rebuild your FOUNDATION

After you have wrapped your mind around the burnout you’ve experienced, it’s time to refocus on the things and the people most important, the essence of who you are without the position, without the title.

Rebuild your FAITH

You’ve done the practical work of rebuilding your psyche and rediscovering what’s most important to you. It’s now time to do the mental work and focus on the areas of your heart and soul that will rebuild your faith to pre-burnout levels.

Rebuild your LIFE

After you’ve done the inner work, it’s now time for the outer work. It’s time to rebuild your life. How will you shape the story you tell? How will you re-invent yourself? How will you re-engage with the body of Christ?
