This research is designed to examine the causes of burnout in African American pastors in the San Francisco Bay Area and to present an approach for them based on biblical insight with a view towards encouraging them to examine, implement, and maintain identifiable spiritual self-care practices on a continuous basis that will become life giving and life affirming for them and those they serve in the church and the community-at-large in hope of the gifts and graces God has endowed them with will overflow and bring longevity to their lives and their ministry.
