So often ministers hit "burn-out" and, as a result, lose their ministry or have it crippled. In many
cases the family is sacrificed as well.
The mission of Elijah Ministries is
Our first objective is to offer
an opportunity and place to ministers that will allow God to renew the vision of their ministry, to focus on their relationship
with their spouse and to help prevent burn-out that can lead to moral failure or cripple their ministry.
cabin at Elijah Ministries provides a peaceful and solitude place where God's servants can find a refuge from the
storms of ministry. A place where God's servant can get away and focus on their relationship with their spouse
and allow God to renew the vision of their ministry. A spiritual R&R (rest and relaxation) place like Elijah experienced
in the wilderness.
In I Kings 18 and 19, we read where Elijah had just experienced a great revival in his ministry
and when he was attacked by the enemy, he became despondent and discouraged. In modern terms, he had hit "burn-out".
He ran into the wilderness wishing his life would end. But God met him there and ministered to him by giving
him much needed rest, relaxation and nourishment. He was strengthened and his vision for ministry was
refreshed. The greater part of his ministry was still ahead. If he would have had his way (his life ended,
ministry over) he would have never realized the end fulfillment of his ministry.
Likewise, many ministers today
hit that low level and sometimes never recover. Elijah Ministries is here to help prevent that from happening.
God wants His servants to be refreshed, renewed and strengthened. He has even greater work ahead for them.
Our second objective
is to alert local
congregations to the "Bulls Eye Target" that the enemy has on their pastor. Pastors and their family today
are under attack like never before. (see statistics)
It seems that Satan has pulled out all the stops knowing that his days are numbered. We want the congregation
to see the urgent need to hold their pastor up in prayer to ward off the attacks of the enemy so he doesn't become another
statistic. Our goal is to inform parishioners how to help their pastor stay strong and minister under the anointing
of the Holy Spirit like never before.
