Are You at Risk for Church Burnout? 2 Free Resources!

I just bought the domain names “” and “” I was ecstatic and shocked they were still available. 

Then I realized why.

mad-church-disease-newEven with the increase of ministerial burnout awareness, with more books being written on pastoral and church health, burning out is just not something we – in the church culture – talk about often. Or Freely.

My book Mad Church Disease published almost five years ago. FIVE. It was awarded the Vital Church Resource Award by Outreach Magazine and it’s still one of the most requested talks I’m asked to give. [Tweet “Burnout is still an epidemic and it’s killing our souls, our hope, our light.”]

That’s why when I received the rights back to my book, I decided to expand it, to add more practical plans and paths and devotionals and personal coaching for people to find help and health, on their own or in teams.

Next week, I’ll have a very exciting opportunity for anyone interested in fighting burnout with me to get the new book and all the new stuff for free. If you want to get in, just pop your email address in the form here and you’ll get to have the chance to sign up first. But for now, I want to give you a couple of things.

There are no points or scores. You just fill out the form and judging on how it looks, you can see if you’re burning out, close to it, or staying healthy.

I can’t emphasize enough how much of a fight we have ahead of us. [Tweet “Satan wants to take us down so we can’t proclaim the hope of the world.”] With the new year approaching, there’s no better time to get ready to start this fight. Let’s not be silent!

  1. Anne & Tim,
    That had to have been THE best falling-in-love story ANS proposals I’ve ever been privileged to witness. Made me cry happy tears. May you have many happy years as your Love Story grows longer, as you serve Him together. Only HE could have possibly orchestrated the two of you getting together! Ain’t God GRAND?
    Many Blessings to you both as we celebrate the Season of His birth.

  2. Anne, this is an awesome resource! Do you ever send books to publications for excerpts? I’m the managing editor of MORF Magazine (published by Student Life) and we frequently include excerpts from Christian ministry resources in our e-newsletters. Helps us equip youth ministers and helps authors get the word out about their books to their target audience. :) If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, you can email me at for more info.

    Excited to see the impact this re-release will have on those in ministry. Thanks for giving the “gift of going first” with this struggle. ;)

  3. About 4yrs ago I googled “church burn out”, and I found your original publication of Mad Church Disease. I’m still trying to figure things out, process my feelings/frustration with organized religion, ugh people can make such a mess of things. I didn’t buy the original book ( no reason why, maybe the pastor at the time had me buying book after book for study after study…guess I was burned out on buying books), but my family needs to find healthy relationships in a church community so a new copy will hopefully be mine in the new year. God bless.
