Most Bible College graduates will begin their ministries with plenty of important head knowledge to share - but with a deficit of some of the most practical aspects of doing ministry, such as: - Which ministry role most suits them - How to start out strongly at a new church - Persevering during difficult seasons of ministry - Leading meetings and delegating tasks - Safeguarding their family - Fighting discouragement, pastor envy and a lack of contentment - Navigating special ministry needs, such as hospitals, weddings and funerals
Through his hard-won wisdom, Jason Helopoulos comes alongside new pastors as a trusted friend and mentor, ready to guide them through their first years of ministry with intelligence and compassion.
"I wish I could have read this book when I was just starting out in ministry. This personal, practical volume will serve as a valuable guide for many young pastors, and quite a few older ones too." - Kevin DeYoung, Senior Pastor of University Reformed Church
