East Texas ministry trying to help ministers struggling with depression and burnout
Tyler — Church pastors work more than just Sundays. Often they're asked to counsel couples or people struggling with issues, hospital visitations, weddings, funerals, administrative duties, and still prepare sermons.
That's aside from their own families and the duties and struggles there. Why so many pastors are dropping out of their calling.
But there is help out there. Shepherd's Heart Ministries is looking to stem that tide.
