2018 Workshop

21st Century Issues: Ministry Burnout: From Marthas into Marys.


Ministry burnout is real. Within it we find ourselves depressed, hurt, critical, anxious, with feelings of exhaustion and hopelessness. And many of us who find ourselves there can’t find our way out. Our faith grows cold, our sin gains control, and we despair. But there is hope. God is not done with us! Come here Pastor Matty share as he speaks about his own severe ministry burnout and how God healed and restored him through the process.
