Episode 37 - Ministry Burnout ft. James Grout

Perspectives Unsettled

Feb 27 2024 • 58 mins

Burnout is the emotional and physical exhaustion that comes from prolonged mental, physical, or emotional stress. While everyone goes through seasons of stress, the relational aspect of ministry heightens its difficulty. And when you are also shouldering the burdens of a community or dealing with culture shock or caring for desperately needy people on top of your own personal life, tiredness can lead to exhaustion pretty quickly. In this episode, we’re talking to James Grout from One Child and we’re asking questions like: What are things specific to ministry and missions that can cause burnout? What happens when something we feel we’re called to seems impossible and overwhelming? And when is it okay to walk away from ministry?
