Episode 31 • Escaping Burnout

  • Written By 
  • Libby Lewis

It’s true – so many people in the church these days experience some sort of burnout… but what’s the cause? Why is it so difficult sometimes?

Whew… this is a big one. But we HAVE to talk about it. Volunteers, staff, leaders, pastors, you name it… whether you like it or not… we ALL need rest.

And if you aren’t resting… or if you haven’t had a service where you haven’t served in a while… take a step back and ask yourself why.

It’s imperative that you not only rest for yourself… but ultimately if you’re burning out, it can have a damaging effect on others too.

SO… in this episode, we talk about some experiences, as well as practical steps to escaping the burnout.

And we would LOVE to hear some ways you’ve escaped burnout as well! Send in some ways you’ve seen it or overcome it yourself. We value your feedback and it totally helps us know where you guys are at on the journey with this podcast!
