Modern Ministry: Learning the Art of Strategic Neglect

By Ministry magazine, June 10, 2015

Almost there! Click above to get to “Learning the Art of Strategic Neglect” from Ministry, the clergy magazine of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

Ministers today face so many pressures, The intensity of the job itself added to the high rates of unrealistic expectations from church memberships or even leadership can set up ministers to burn out quickly and, often, to live with a great burden of guilt, frustration, and disillusionment. “Strategic neglect” may be a  way for ministers to cope by taking a new look at putting first things first by better managing their competing commitments and finding homeostasis in their spiritual, personal, and professional lives.
