It is heartbreaking to see too many GREAT leaders leaving ministry each year. Actually, 4 out of 5 pastors/key leader leave ministry forever before year 5. So I decided to focus my research for my Master's Degree and now my doctorate on the reasons why pastors quit, and what can be done to keep pastors/restore them for the long haul. I compiled my research into a book, my third book, called "Why We Quit." This book certainly applies to ALL pastors and key leaders, whether you have been in ministry 3 months or 40 years! Some of the topics covered in the book include 1. How to deal with difficult people/situations 2. Navigating a ministry transition well 3. How to deal with and avoid burnout 4. Recognizing the warning signs of burnout 5. Building and protecting your support teams- and so much more! Sometimes funny, sometimes raw and tragic, listen to real pastor's stories- some that left ministry forever and some that have found ways to stay in for the long haul. Whatever season of ministry you may be in, I hope this book will prove a helpful tool to improve your mental, emotional and physical health, your family life and your ministry, now and for many years to come!
