Ministerial Health/Worker Wellness
Free Stay at Camp Lutherhoma Open for any Church Worker
What do you need relief from?
having a hard time caring,
having a hard time facing the day, the next meeting, the next sermon you have to write.
I have good news for you, the Lord loves you and cares for you; so do I. When the rigors and stresses of ministry start to affect your life adversely, it’s time to take care of yourself. If your situation feels like a place to just get away for a while to a relaxing place would help, here’s two nearly free room and board resources to consider.
Free stay at Camp Lutherhoma is open to any church worker, including one night and breakfast free, but can extend that if there is need. Contact John Busch at firstname.lastname@example.org, 918-458-0704, for availability. Weekdays are generally open. Often weekends, too! The Retreat Cabins, Pine and Aspen, are custom built for comfort and hospitality. Each cabin has 4 bedrooms with common bathrooms, kitchenette, and main room with fireplace. Just outside the cabins are 120 acres of forest and hills, with the Illinois River running through camp. Many outdoor opportunities are available, such as hiking, sitting on prayer benches by the river, and enjoying a campfire at our new fire ring behind Pine and Aspen.
Relaxing stay in private room with all linens and bedding and towels provided.
Queen bed, bunk and twin beds in each room, along with a sink.
Coffee is available for you to make at any time.
The kitchenette as a microwave and refrigerator.

Always remember that Pastoral Support Network, is an EAP specifically designed for ordained pastors and those that live in a pastor’s home. It is free and confidential (regardless of enrollment in the Concordia Plans) and can be reached at 888-712-1805.
This time of year seems to be one of the worst times of spiritual battle for those in professional church work. Pay attention to yourself and know when to reach out to care for yourself.
A final invitation: I also invite you to call me,. I am Your ministerial Health/Worker Wellness Representative. Know that whatever you tell me is confidential. I am a seasoned pastor, certified reconciliation coach, a certified mediator, a trained chaplain, church planter. I have a varied background to be a good listener and care for you. I’ll be sending out other email information on Ministerial Health/Worker Wellness programs as time permits. There is funding to help with programs in this area so don’t let finances be an obstacle.
