How to Burnout in Ministry in Five Easy Steps

Scott Crouchenour over at Serving Strong has a great article on how to avoid ministry burnout and stay strong. I’m thinking… It’s Monday… and I bet that there are a good number reading this today that feel burned out.  See if Scott can help guide you through some remedies…

I’ll give you the first two here… you can get the last three over at Scott’s Serving Strong website:

  • Seek Unforgiveness. Someone hurt you lately? Cool. Here’s what you do: Hold a grudge. That’s right. Don’t give in to the temptation to be the weaker one. Keep steady. Better yet, give them the silent treatment. Yeah! It will teach them a lesson and you’ll be well on your way to burning out.
  • Pursue Passionlessness. Ask yourself this question: “What ministry fuels my passion?” Got your answer? Good. Now do something (anything) that is the opposite of your answer. Do the thing that is a total drag for you. Give it your all. Seek the boredom. Revel in the difficulty. It will annoy those around you and you’ll be well on your way to burning out. You can read the other three here… Any thoughts or comments on how you’ve avoided (or gotten yourself out of) burnout?
