Reflect – on Who you are in the Lord
Refresh – your body and mind
Restore – your walk with the Father
If you are a pastor and you are struggling – you do not have to
Project Restore is one of the most exciting and rewarding aspects of Waters Edge Encampment. WEE believes that one of the most crucial parts of the Christian community is in vital need of restoration. Pastors of churches in America are experiencing burnout at an alarming rate. The late Peter Drucker identified pastoring as one of the four hardest jobs in our country, right behind being President of the United States of America. Truth be told, when you look at the statistics they are unbelievably alarming. 40% of pastors say they have considered leaving their pastorates in the last three months, 50% of the ministers starting out will not last 5 years, and over 1,700 pastors left the ministry every month last year.
With such a devastating reality, there is a dire need for a place for pastors to be restored and refreshed. Project Restore seeks to refresh pastors by allowing them to use our facilities for a safe haven. There is no cost for this program. WEE is a place of restoration, reflection, and refreshment for pastors. WEE is strategically placed in the heart of East Texas surrounded by natural beauty and free from the busyness that plagues most leaders. While pastors come for refreshment, WEE provides their church with capable, seasoned ministers who fill in during their stay at Waters Edge.
It is our goal to host 20 pastors in 2017. If you would like to help sponsor a pastor, give us a call today. We want to continue to offer this service to pastors free of charge.
Imagine what 10 men of God can accomplish as the Father restores them into a vital relationship with Him.
