Ministry Leader Gathering - Princeton, NJ: Avoiding Ministry Burnout and Flameout

Flameout (moral failure) and burnout (physical and emotional exhaustion) are leading reasons why ministry leaders are forced to leave the ministry. Pastors, missionaries, and church planters are at particular risk due to the 24/7, fast-paced, non-stop demands and inherent isolation of ministry. In our time together, we will explore the phenomena of flameout and burnout, the downward spiral leading to these conditions, and the necessary and practical steps for staying healthy in the marathon distance run of ministry.
