The Truth About Stress and Ministry

Sunday does come around with amazing regularity, doesn’t it?

As a pastor, you face a never-ending to-do list:

There is always going to be somebody else to reach for Christ.

There is always going to be somebody else to disciple in Christ.

There is always going to be another budget issue.

There is always going to be another meeting.

There is always going to be another pastoral care visit. 

As long as you are in ministry, there is always going to be something to do.

As pastors we can stay at our desks 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and it’s never going to ALL get done. Our to-do lists are never-ending. Expectations are always expanding. The email box is always full. The phone is always ringing.

Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble,” and pastors are on the front lines. This ongoing stress can be a discouraging reality – IF you don’t have a way to manage it.

If left unchecked, stress can impede your life and ministry and derail your health, relationships and emotional well-being.
