Well-Being Respite

​Board University introduces Well-Being Respite, a unique online opportunity for members that supports wholeness.

Well-Being Respite

Well-Being Respite is a unique online opportunity to step away from your daily routine and come to the well for spiritual renewal, mental stimulation, thoughtful conversation, and meaningful engagement with colleagues in life and ministry as you contemplate God's movement in our individual and collective experiences.

Available to all Benefits Plan members*, Well-Being Respite is a virtual space to pause, learn, reframe, and connect. Each of these four monthly offerings focuses on a different dimension of wholeness — financial, spiritual, vocational, and health — and how the current landscape shapes our understanding and application of it.

Respites will be held on Wednesdays, August 19, September 16, October 21, and November 18, from 1-4 p.m. ET. Each respite is comprised of the following:

  • worship
  • an engaging workshop
  • a panel discussion
  • break-out conversation with other participants

The event concludes with a charge and blessing as you return to the rhythm of your day. 

*Includes all active and retired plan members and their spouses, including surviving spouses.

Scheduled topics and primary presenters for each respite are as follows. Registration for each respite will open a few weeks prior to the event. Check back for your opportunity to register for these unique online opportunities that support wholeness.
