I will be speaking on:
Self-Care and Resilience for Church Leaders
The Power of Contentment in Ministry Leadership
Ministry leaders live a constant tension of being happy where they are and being driven to grow their ministry or church. Pastors and leaders often find themselves living in frustration as a result. Where is the line between healthy drive for growth and discontentment? This session will discuss the principle of biblical contentment and the consequent peace and mental health it brings.

He has also led the local ministerial over a period of twenty years, been the National Worship Leader for Promise Keepers Canada for a period of twelve years, and has sat on a few national ministry boards. After experiencing burnout and depression in 2015, Marc took a leave to recover and subsequently wrote "A Fresh Start: Burnout and Recovery in Ministry" to help others avoid or recover from burnout.
