The Growing Trend of Pastoral Burnout, With Doug Schmidt
Show Notes

According to a recent Barna survey, 38% of U.S. pastors have thought about quitting full-time ministry in the past year. Many are on the brink of burnout due to the stress of the job, the current political culture, feeling lonely and isolated, and not feeling optimistic about the future of the church. What can we do to weather this storm and support, encourage, and help our church leaders? Doug Schmidt, Executive Director of Barnabas Ministries of Michigan, provides practical insight and ideas in this episode.
