Ep. 47 : Shrinking the Integrity Gap: Burnout Unhurried Leadership with John Mark Comer

Though many have felt the down shift of the Covid pandemic, leaders in every sector have felt the increase pressures of long-term planning, crisis management, and caring for the overwhelming wake of needs in and out of the Church. In this episode, we talk with an Oregon native, John Mark Comer. He’s the teaching pastor of Bridgetown Church in Portland, Oregon and is the author of many books. His latest book, The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry, outlines his own story of burnout and how he took practical steps to restoring years of overloaded leadership. As John Mark points out, his story is far too common, as leaders push their limits and lose sight of their own needs and the needs of those they love dearly. We believe this podcast, as well as our books, will help any leader who is in or headed toward burnout. Make sure you share this powerful conversation with someone you know. Shrinking the Integrity Gap officially releases 10/1 and you have a couple more days to get your FREE audiobook with your pre-order.
