Second Place: Chris MaxwellDo Pastors Care Too Much? 

It is exciting to know that we have someone of Pastor Chris’ caliber working with the students on a daily basis. He is passionate about this work and it is a blessing to know that he is representing the College in such a positive way. He is a game-changer!

What readers are saying about “Do Pastors Care Too Much?”

Chris’s pastoral heart is evident in his writing, demonstrating genuine care as he communicates truth and hope. It is a joy to partner with him in ministry to serve pastors and church leaders. With nearly two-thirds of U.S. Protestant pastors pointing to stress as a mental challenge they face in ministry, Chris uses his voice in this article to remind pastors they weren’t created to carry the weight of every struggle the people in their congregation’s face. This is a timely message for pastors, exhorting them to care deeply for others while also guarding space to rest in the Lord and allowing others to minister to them as well.
