The Impact of Stress on Pastors and Ministry Leaders

Monday, June 10, 2024  |  7–9 p.m.

Stress in Christian ministry is real. 90 percent of pastors are working 55-75 hours per week dealing with congregant needs and administrative duties. Over time, this can result in burn out and unproductive outcomes. Recent research shows that 45 percent of pastors are leaving ministry early due to burn out and another 10 percent are having early cardiovascular events such as strokes and heart attacks. This does not stop with pastors. Ministry leaders at all levels of Christian ministry are impacted. Are you stressed in your current role in ministry? Are you having physical signs of stress? Join us and learn strategies to better understand and take control of your stress.
