Over the past few months, there has been a drastic increase in the number of suicides that have occurred from those who are in ministry positions!  There seems to be an undo pressure that many are crumbling under.  The need to silence personal issues behind the closed doors while maintaining the spotless image before the people.  The need to show unnecessary strength, when everything in you just needs a shoulder to lean on and possibly cry as well!!  The need to have all of the answers and rarely reaching out when you don't.

The list could go on and on!

Those who are in leadership positions seem to find themselves at times, with a shoulder full of responsibilities that at times are much too bear.  Oftentimes, the sad reality is that most of those shoulder bearing responsibilities are unneccessary!  

Sometimes we have a need to feel important!  Sometimes that need outweights the knowledge we have of knowing our own limits, but we push and push ourselves until its too late.

Today on The Revolution Radio Show, we are going to deal with the pressures so many justifiably and unjustifiably place on themselves and the things that we can do to perhaps intervene before the pressure reaches its max.
