It explores the following themes: vocation, purpose, wholeness, engagement, commitment, meaning, and impact.  If you would like to partner with us on our Caring for the Caregivers, Flourishing in Ministry, or Lifelong Wellbeing projects, please contact us. 

Caring For Caregivers Caring For Caregivers

Caring for Caregivers explores wellbeing among people who work for humanitarian organizations, NGOs, charities, philanthropies, and other groups dedicated to improving the lives of those in need.

Flourishing in Ministry Flourishing in Ministry

Focused on the wellbeing of clergy and their families, Flourishing in Ministry examines what motivates pastors and priests to be engaged in ministry—and what disrupts them from experiencing wellbeing in their work. In our research, we attempt to explore how clergy—often working with lean resources—can give so much to others, and experience a sense of fulfillment and growth in their daily work lives.
