SOONER OR LATER, EVERY PASTOR NEEDS WHAT MAKES A GOOD PASTOR GREAT: THE STRENGTH TO STAND AND TO STAY.
Pastors are maturing. Deepening. They want substance for their congregations—and nourishment for their own soul. THE PASTOR’S SOUL series unleashes pastors to do what really matters. To step beyond skills. To give of their unique gifts. To minister authentically and grow in the intangibles of ministry like integrity and character.
A GROUND BREAKING SERIES ON THE INNER LIFE OF PASTORS
In this changing culture, pastors need dedication to do what God wants them to do. They need determination to accomplish their highest priorities.
Every pastor has felt the desire to throw in the towel—to resign from a church or even drop out of the ministry. The press of day-in, day-out care for people can overwhelm the most noble reasons for entering ministry. A pastor’s own brokenness, sinfulness, restlessness, and self-doubts only compound the weight. Pastoral Grit examines honestly the spiritual and practical calamities that compel pastors to give up–and offers realistic insight to help pastors persevere.
