Rest + Spiritual Guidance
Are you drowning under the weight of your ministry?
Do you feel lonely even though you are surrounded by parishioners?
At the Walt Crow Center for Pastors, we know that pastoring is difficult. That's why we offer you the opportunity to apply for a 3 night/4 day stay in a home on the campus of Southern Nazarene University and experience a renewal experience.
As part of the weekend, you will have the option to choose to engage in a free therapy session, a free session with a spiritual director, and a meeting with a pastor/mentor. However, if you would like to pass on any of these sessions, you may do so. This is about giving you the space to think, to bounce ideas and thoughts off of a spiritual guide or therapist, to draw near to God, and to find clarity for what may come in the future.
The only thing is that you are responsible for your own transportation to and from Oklahoma City, and for transportation while you are in Oklahoma City.
