Servant leaders, servant families and leadership teams are a part of an invisible demographic: the underserved. Often, ministry excellence is the trade-off for high-stress levels, health and wellness issues and unreasonable family sacrifices all allegedly for the purpose of the kingdom. They are in the spiritual trenches, on behalf of ministry and community. IC4U-Intensive Care for You, Inc. exists to serve the servants, our unheralded heroes that unyieldingly sacrifice to facilitate our psychological, physiological and spiritual health.
A servant leader’s reality goes something like this: “Eight out of ten of us are on call 24 hours a day including non-urgent “emergencies.” Conflict within our ministry charge is an expectation requiring us to extinguish fires before cause damage to the work. More than half of us experience extreme concerns for our family’s financial security and are frequently overwhelmed by the demands of ministry leadership.” Life Way research
“Servant leaders are often expected to do a lot with very little spiritual and emotional support. The consequences of those expectations have proven [to be] devastating as indicated in the rise in clergy burnout and even suicide. For that reason, IC4U is a needed and timely endeavor.” Celeste C. Owens, Ph.D., author of The 40-Day Surrender Fast and Co-Founder of Dr. Celeste Owens Ministries, LLC
