What Pastors Told Us About Surviving and Thriving
– Bob Burns, Tasha Chapman, and Donald C. Guthrie. InterVarsity Press.
Every year hundreds of pastors and ministry leaders leave the vocational ministry they thought they had been called to for a lifetime. Why? What does it take for ministry leaders to remain in fruitful ministry for a lifetime? How can both the ministry leaders and those around them pursue resiliency that fosters healthy ministry leadership? This book is a result of years of reflection and research seeking to answer these questions. There are five primary resilient ministry themes that ministry leaders should consider personally and in community in order to be sustained in fruitful ministry:
1) Spiritual formation
3) Emotional and cultural intelligence
4) Marriage and family
5) Leadership and Management
