Setting Boundaries and Finding Balance in Pastoral Ministry

“But They Need Me!” Setting Boundaries and Finding Balance in Pastoral Ministry

The problem of “burnout” is a real issue in ministry. Every organization, conference, and publication has offered some sort of session on stress and balance, and the practical suggestions they offer can be very helpful. But what issues exist that perpetuate this reality of burnout? Why do we take on so much? Why are so many of us unable to say “no” to new requests, new tasks, more responsibility? Explore these questions and more with panelists Bex Gaunt and M. Roger Holland II.

This session was originally broadcast on Thursday, July 16, 2020 as part of GIA Publications’ “Summer Series.” For more conversations, check out the series playlist on GIA’s YouTube channel.
