Some insights on the need for finding renewal:
- A small sample size identified as being overwhelmed, stressed, or burnt-out
- 75-85% of Ministry leaders say they are burned out
- 80% say they may not be in ministry in 10 years
- 80% of leaders say ministry has a negative effect on them and their families
- A large number of ministry leaders are considering stepping out of local church ministry
- There is also a void with new leaders due to fewer people attending college and seminary
What if I am experiencing this type of stress?
- When you are going into a valley season, it will never look the same; but there are some principles that won't change
- Don't walk through it alone; find someone you trust
- Keep your head and heart open
- This season may not look like what you thought it should look like
- Some of the best seasons of ministry won't be while you're on a mountain, but while you're in a valley
- Stop thinking of changing job positions or roles as a “bad thing”
- Who can journey with you? Ask them.
- Read something – Tom labeled multiple books + his new book
