Pastors are maturing. Deepening. They want substance for their congregations—and nourishment for their own soul. THE PASTOR'S SOUL series unleashes pastors to do what really matters. To step beyond skills. To give of their unique gifts. To minister authentically and grow in the intangibles of ministry like integrity and character.
A GROUND BREAKING SERIES ON THE INNER LIFE OF PASTORS
In this changing culture, pastors know the importance of dedicating themselves to God's mission in the world. They desire to rediscover the wonder of prayer and to experience its result: knowing God.
One of the dangers of pastoral ministry is to fail to recognize that the work of God's kingdom is a spiritual battle, and that prayer is at the heart of the struggle. Evil and darkness are as intractable and entrenched as they were in the first century. To pray is to engage in radical warfare, to storm the gates of hell and uproot evil. Prayer is the work of the church, and it actually gets God's work done on earth.
