Flourishing in the Ministry

Confronting the Challenges Facing Young Ministers
  • By Benjamin M. Kaufman

Too many Christian leaders begin their ministry with great aspirations but stumble when faced with the challenges inherent in full-time ministry.

"Flourishing In The Ministry" cites the challenges encountered by ministers who are approximately age 20-30 and in their first years of ministry. Drawing on Biblical examples, personal experiences, and interviews with many young leaders, Benjamin Kaufman provides descriptions of the challenges and offers suggestions for dealing with them effectively.

In the last ten years, Dr. Kaufman has coached many young ministers. He has encouraged them to question their ministry assumptions, practice healthy thought patterns, and develop behavioral habits that lead to strong work relationships and balanced marriages.

"Flourishing In The Ministry" topics include:
Solidifying Your Call to Full-Time Ministry
Knowing Yourself
Lack of Credibility
Dealing with Expectations
Working with the Opportunities Available
Working with People
Challenges Related to Mentors
Dealing with Criticism
Balancing Ministry and Marriage
Understanding Your Boss
Staff Relationships

If you are a young minister, reading this book will give you insight into potential obstacles that lie along your ministry pathway. If you work with young ministers, this book will give you tools that you can use to teach and encourage the young ministers you coach, mentor, or work alongside.
