Yet the news about him spread all the more, so that crowds of people came to hear him and to be healed of their sicknesses.
But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.
Luke 5:15-16, emphasis added

Working in ministry isn’t a job; it’s a calling.

You are called to lead, to care, to be available to your congregation at the best moments of their lives… and the worst. It’s an honour that God has entrusted to you, but that doesn’t make it easy. Pastors and leaders also need a chance to be pastored and to reignite their passion for ministry. Reignite is a CBOQ pastor and ministry leaders’ conference designed to encourage, inspire, connect and refresh all our ministry workers. Take a few days away from the intensity of ministry and reignite your passion for Christ alongside old and new friends. We invite you to come, or, if you’re not a ministry leader, consider encouraging your pastors to come to Reignite and give them a chance to recharge and be strengthened to serve your church better.
