Episode Synopsis

Ministry burnout has become more and more common over the past several decades. In this week’s episode Matt & Jared discuss the difference between burnout and just simply being tired, the signs of ministry burnout, how to avoid ministry burnout, and what to do if you or someone you know is in the midst of ministry burnout.

Quote from John Henderson

“When we lose all sense of motivation, perhaps because we’ve derived it for too long from the wrong things, we may be in a state of pastoral burnout. The wind that used to fill our sails has faded away. The love of Christ has become an empty idea. The promises of God and the edification of the church feel distant. The things that used to push us out of bed in the morning just don’t push us anymore.”
