From Ministry Burnout to Life-Giving Business with Jeff Gauss


In this episode of the EntrePastors podcast, Jon sits down with his friend and former coaching client, Jeff Gauss.  Jess served for many years as a church planter and by many metrics, experienced a great deal of success in that role.  However, everything came to a screeching halt as Jeff hit a wall of depression and burnout right in the middle of what appeared to be successful church planting.  Jeff shares his experiences of burnout, the challenges of transitioning out of pastoral ministry, and the importance of recognizing pastors' skills in the marketplace. He emphasizes the need to give pastors permission to pursue “secular” work as a form of ministry and shares how his own business has grown and positively impacted his life. You will gain valuable insights into the intersection of ministry and entrepreneurship in this thought-provoking episode.
