Impact on Leaders?
Impact #1: Fitness and wellness increase the probability of the body being in better condition, which in turn give pastors a much greater ability to serve the Lord now and longer in life. They will have the energy to disciple the younger generations, which is currently lacking due to sickness and de-conditioned vessels.
Impact #2: Fitness and wellness provide opportunities to grow in personal faith, with opportunity for others to pour into their life.
Impact #3: Fitness and wellness greatly reduces stress level and increases mental health stability.
Impact #4: Fitness and wellness improves attitude. Pastors deal with negativity daily. People pour their stuff upon them and when they don’t take it to God in prayer and manage it personally, it affects attitude negatively.
Impact #5: When leaders feel good and feel energized, they have more to give and offer others.
