"Ministry is harder than I thought it would be..."
No pastor is ever fully prepared for the ministry. For pastors just starting out, those needing a little rebalancing, or those growing tired in the trenches, a handbook on the basics is a welcome relief.
In "On Pastoring," veteran pastor H. B. Charles gives 30 quick chapters on the practical aspects of pastoral ministry. Covering the devotional life, spiritual leadership, and public ministry of the pastor, he provides advice on topics like:
- Avoiding pastoral risk factors
- Prioritizing your family
- Equipping and leading leaders
- Guarding your heart in the pulpit
- Preparing well for preaching
Being a pastor means wearing many hats, weathering lots of pressure, and bearing great responsibility. Let H. B. Charles be a trusted advisor as you do the serious work of shepherding a flock of God.
