Barna and Pepperdine University conducted a major study into how today’s faith leaders are navigating life and leadership in this age of complexity. What they found is startling: one in three pastors are at risk of burnout. And as the world struggles to move past the pandemic, these numbers are only increasing.
In this episode, Mindy Caliguire—the president and chief executive of Soul Care—talks with attorney Erika Cole about the causes of pastoral burnout, the spiritual and legal implications that arise when a burnout leads to an unexpected resignation or moral failing, and solutions that can help churches, their ministers, and their congregations avoid unnecessary liabilities and ministerial challenges.
