Avoiding Clergy Burnout

Bruce G. Epperly & Katherine Gould Epperly

Avoiding Clergy Burnout

The Epperlys, experienced leaders in whole-person programs for pastors, are keenly aware that a great number of today’s pastors are experiencing burnout. Through the sharing of life-transforming, whole-person spiritual practices; theological reflection; and personal narratives of their own as well as stories from ministers in the Lancaster Theological Seminary’s ministerial excellence groups, they expertly provide whole-person nurture to pastors in all stages of their ministry.   Feed The Fire! Avoiding Clergy Burnout.
