Recommend Resource

Resilient Ministry: What Pastors Told Us About Surviving and Thriving Bob Burns, Tasha D. Chapman & Donald C. Guthrie

The stresses of pastoring are well known and can be a match for even the best-prepared, most experienced in ministry. To find out how pastors can thrive, the authors of Reilient Ministry undertook a five-year in-depth research project among working pastors. Here in this ground-breaking book is the distilled wisdom of dozens of pastors who have been on the front lines of ministry. We hear from them what works, what doesn't and what distinctive issues people in ministry face.
