The Wellness Project @ Wycliffe is a long-term research project that has been in process for nearly a decade, and has its origins in efforts to help prevent clergy burnout. This project was born out of a desire to understand both the life-giving and life-eroding elements of Christian ministry life, and to discover how best to support Christian leaders throughout their careers.

We are no longer accepting participants as we focus on data analysis and publication of our findings to date. Please contact us at Wycliffe.wellness@wycliffe.utoronto.ca if you have any further questions.
