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.

Because the research project is ongoing, its form and content will change based on our analysis of the data provided by participants. In its current form, participation in the project involves approximately 60 minutes of time to complete a set of 6 online questionnaires. This project, with the information provided to us by participants, is the basis for the recommendations, tools, and resources we offer to people in ministry.
