Description

Nowhere in Scripture do we find the story of Jesus rushing to Bethany like a maniac. Yet, far too often, we see dedicated ministry leaders embracing a lifestyle that leads to disillusionment and burnout. Welcome to our podcast, where we champion the art of nurturing a self-care mindset alongside a transformative kenotic leadership style. It's not about denominations; it's a profound spiritual journey! Join us for a candid conversation as we explore how you can consciously refocus and realign your life to cultivate a sustainable, thriving lifestyle. After all, if you don't, you might just find yourself becoming... The CRABBY Pastor.
