Start to Finish: A Conversation with Mark Dance

A 2022 Lifeway Research study revealed that stress is the number one challenge for over 60 percent of pastors, so how can pastors and congregations help to lessen that burden? Former Pastor Mark Dance experienced a time of depression and burnout and launched the Care4Pastors Network and Lifeway Pastors. Mark has written a guide for pastors on leading a resilient life and ministry in his new book, Start to Finish. Listen in for encouragement on tempering expectations and building balance in life and ministry on Friday's show!
