We have developed a “Burnout First Aid” help sheet which we encourage all pastors and church leaders to refer to immediately when they sense there may be burnout in one of their pastor’s lives. It provides an assessment tool, some immediate action steps and some top tips for both the pastor and church leadership. This First Aid Sheet can be found here.
In addition, there are many good resources available to assist pastors who are stressed or burning out. Some of these have been previously distributed through the HUB. A list of these resources is available here.
Other resources on stress and burnout can be found by searching the archives of Pastors Forums and Regional Minister Resources. Links to these can be found as follows:
If a pastor or church would like assistance or support to work through an instance of burnout, we would encourage you to contact the Director of Pastoral Services.
