Seminary launches blog series on clergy health and well-being

Lexington, Ky., Jan. 21, 2014 – Clergy health and well-being are the focus of a new blog series launching this week via Lexington Theological Seminary’s Ministry Life Choices Initiative (MLCI).

LTS Advancement Associate Julie Richardson Brown is editing the series, with contributions from pastors and church leaders from a variety of denominations and seminaries.

Each segment of the series will focus on a particular area of concern for clergy, including physical, emotional, spiritual and financial well-being.

The MLCI will assist those in the first five years of ministry to develop habits and practices for sustainable ministry. The relationship will span the first few years of theological education and the introductory years as a congregational minister. The MLCI is a ministry of the Pension Fund of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in partnership with Lexington Theological Seminary.
