Why do pastors burn out? And what can be done about it?
Are you burning out? Is your church leading you to the brink?

Like Pete Wilson  or Perry Noble, pastors of churches of any size are constantly facing burning out.

David Fitch and Geoff Holsclaw offer three pieces of advice to mega-church pastors, or any pastor, to help them not burn out (and it probably isn’t the advice that you are thinking of).  Dave and Geoff respond to the advice of others and try to look at the problem from a different angle.
