“Oddly enough, but burnout is real. At the beginning of his Ministry, it seems that this problem does not exist and is a fantasy Western Ministers. But in the process of service understand the kind of emotional burden experienced by the pastor, — said Dmitry Laptev. — We previously met the Manager syndrome. Against this background, insomnia, high blood pressure, mental illness… unfortunately, the pastors understand this too late when they are in the same situation, and no way out and nobody offers.”

The Minister likened the pastor’s Ministry in the Ukraine with the monk. The pastor should go as a beggar, behave modestly, to be constantly in the Spirit, be filled with spiritual gifts, to receive revelation and to continually pray for the needs of the faithful. While constantly being under the gun of criticism and condemnation

“I’m not surprised that many do not stand up. Never try to condemn pastors, when they leave the service. They see the solution only in this, — he stressed. — Not once was in a similar state. At this point, you can’t afford to help myself. But unfortunately the understanding is not in the Federal guidelines “or die, holding the plow, or you’re not trustworthy in the Kingdom of God!””.

Dmitriy noted that in such cases, you need to learn to recognize this condition and to seek out and people are ready to help you.
