Resilient Ministry : What Pastors Told Us About Surviving and Thriving

Posted on 25 September 2013 Gavin Glenn

What does it take to have fruitful ministry over the long haul?

The stresses of pastoring are well known – multiple tasks, long hours, taxing responsibilities and, yes, some challenging personalities. Too often the results can be burnout, being run out or just feeling worn out.

To find out how pastors can thrive as well as survive, the authors undertook a five-year in-depth research project among working pastors. In this ground-breaking book is the distilled wisdom of dozens 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.

The authors uncover five key themes that promote healthy, sustainable ministry that lasts. The result is a book that can also be of value to church boards and others who want to better understand how to help sustain their pastors in ministry. In short, this is a book pastors can’t live without.
