Burnout in Pastoral ministry is common. Many of us will know a church leader who worked hard, gave himself to the church and as the years progressed...hit the buffers or crashed, emotionally done in. Leading a church is hard work: it is emotionally demanding; expectations are high; you get criticised; you have to perform; it is spiritual warfare; it takes its toll. How then do we maintain a healthy emotionally life that sees us thriving through the decades and running through the tape at the end?
One very helpful resource for pastoral workers is from the 9Marks Journal:
