Greetings! I’m Dr. John Studebaker. I experienced intense ministerial burnout in 1985-87.
It began after conducting an evangelistic event on a college campus. As I started reading through the response cards, I thought to myself, “I don’t even care what’s written on the cards!” I had lost interest in ministry and meaningful relationships. Watch my story here (less than 3 minutes)
I was able to recover from burnout with the help of a skilled Christian coach. Soon afterwards, the Lord called me to coach Pastors and Missionaries. I then developed the LifeBridge Coaching model as part of my Ph.D. course work and based on the principles I learned in my recovery.
Since 2001, I and my Bridge Ministries team have coached over 200 clergy, assisting them in overcoming burnout and in restoring divine calling, mission clarity, margin in life and ministry, and joy in the Holy Spirit.
