3.  SPECIAL REQUEST

One of our Pastors, Romien Joubert is currently busy with studies on the wellbeing of South African Church Leaders which remains a cause for concern: “Many church leaders are struggling to passionately persevere in ministry.”

The theoretical argument of her study is that resilience and the intentional and holistic cultivation thereof, could add immense value in offering a solution. Please assist her by completing a questionnaire focused on exploring church leaders’ understanding of resilience, their current attempts to build it into their lives, and their current resilience levels. Your participation and contribution is crucial and highly valued. Thank you in advance for your time.
