"This book is filled with godly, biblical, and practical wisdom for those who shepherd the people of God."--Danny Akin, president, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
If you have served on a church staff for any length of time, you've almost certainly dealt with unhealthy expectations. Too many pastors embrace a hard-driving ministry that hurtles them toward burnout even as they convince themselves they are being obedient to God's will. In reality, putting too much energy into one area of life or ministry causes you to neglect others.
With thirty years of experience behind him, David Horner knows the many pitfalls of pastoral ministry. In 7 Challenges Pastors Face, he shows you how to
· balance the demands of your calling
· sharpen your vision
· grow a team
· cultivate humility
· learn through failure
· embrace change
· fight spiritual dryness
Developing a well-balanced approach to responsibilities and passions will equip you to thrive in the face of the many challenges of ministry. This book can show you the way.
David Horner is the executive director of Equipped for Life, where he equips leaders for the work of the kingdom. He holds an MDiv from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and a PhD from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
