Publisher's Summary

How would you respond if you discovered your pastor was burnt out in ministry and on the verge of giving up? 

Being a pastor is a high calling - and a lonely one. Focused on their own needs, frustrations, or disappointments, many congregants fail to realize they may be ignoring or even adding to their pastor’s hidden load of stress and discouragement. 

Dr. LeJoia VanHook, a Nashville-based educator on a mission to build stronger communities and healthier churches, has a heart of compassion for the overwhelmed and unappreciated pastor. Drawing from extensive research, she provides laity with understanding of how they can make their church a place that’s a joy to pastor. 

This practical audiobook includes: 

  • Anonymous interviews with seasoned pastors about their real-life challenges and experiences 
  •  Honest examination of disturbing trends of pastoral burnout 
  • Insights into key expectations pastors have of themselves and their associates 
  • Understanding of the special stresses a pastor and his family face 
  • Practical ways you can change the environment and expectations of your church 

Plus, workbook questions and action steps will help you begin to reflect on your personal role in the effort to save your pastor from burnout!

It’s time for the body of Christ to truly commit to supporting one of its key resources - its pastors. Whether you stand behind a pulpit or sit in the pews, let Operation Save Our Pastors provide you and your church with tools to build a healthy, sustainable pastor-congregation relationship based on understanding, empathy, and encouragement.
