Welcome to the Ministry Vine! This site is a blog for Christian leaders. Most of the site is focused on personal health and many of the posts are directed to those who lead in churches, ministries and other faith based organizations, but most of the principles apply to all leaders.

At the heart of our website is a self-care inventory. You can find that on the menu above. Most of our posts are short reflections on the various items on on the self-care inventory.

The reality is that leaders cannot give what they do not have. Health trumps all. You cannot be a great leader if you are not a healthy leader. You cannot be an effective organization if the organization and its leadership is not healthy.

We hope that you find this helpful. If you want to learn more or have questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. If you want to donate to our work, please click here.
