None of us start off in ministry thinking, “You know what, I’m going to burn out”…yet burnout happens. So what can we incorporate into our lives and ministries to help us not only lead well, but also finish well? In this week’s conversation on FrontStage BackStage, host Jason Daye is joined by Mark Dance, Director of Pastoral Wellness at GuideStone Financial Resources. For 27 years, Mark served as a pastor and church planter and also helped launch Lifeway Pastors and the Care4Pastors Network. His latest book is entitled, “Start to Finish.” Together, Mark and Jason look at some important practices we can incorporate into our lives to help ensure that we do not veer off course in our ministries. Mark also shares some fresh insights about how neighboring well helps us flourish in both life and ministry.
