Burnout is almost an epidemic among church leaders today, and it’s increasingly common among business leaders as well.
Even young leaders are burning out. No longer is burnout an “I’ve been at this too long” kind of phenomenon.
So what happens if you burnout?

One of the hardest things I do in ministry is interact with those who are no longer in ministry, but wish they were. They’ve been derailed. They messed up and either they got caught or the guilt got the best of them and they confessed. Watching this process over the years there appear to be some common reasons failure occurs. It doesn’t start at the failure. It starts months – and, perhaps years – prior. My hope is if we expose some of them we can catch a few people before it is too late.
