I came across this last week while on vacation with my family. It is a short blog post by Jason Sansbury. Jason shares very openly about some of the hidden costs of youth ministry. It is a great article and really will make you think! Here is the link.  Jason outlined three areas of health Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual health.  What would you add? I know one of the things I would add is Family health. As we all know you can get so busy taking care of others that you neglect your family. I would love to hear what you think.



  1. Great article Josh. I’d add supportive church family health also. The ability to turn to true friends within your church for guidance and help to maintain pastor’s overall well being.

  2. Great thoughts Amy!
