David Barter, a Blue Mountains-based pastor, has just released his new book, ‘A Better Way’ in which he shares his emotional journey through anxiety, depression and burn out. David offers a rare insight into the high-pressure world an increasing number of pastors face within ministry life. He also offers a way forward.
Through his book, David reveals how burnout, depression and moral failure are on the increase within pastoral ministry and how change is desperately needed. He shares how God led him to find freedom from performance and pressure to “get more people, fill every seat”, and walk the path to recovery.
