Many new pastors in their first years of ministry feel unprepared for some of the practical aspects of their calling. The New Pastor’s Handbook is a guide to navigating these unfamiliar waters. With his hard-won wisdom, pastor Jason Helopoulos helps and encourages new pastors through the first years of ministry. He explains how to start out strong at a new church, persevere during difficult seasons of ministry, fight discouragement, navigate special ministry needs, and more.
For more practical advice on ministry see Letters to Timothy: A Handbook for Pastors.
I wish I could have read this book when I was just starting out in ministry. This personal, practical volume will serve as a valuable guide for many young pastors, and quite a few older ones too.
—Kevin DeYoung, senior pastor, University Reformed Church
The joys of pastoral ministry are enormous, but so are the challenges. Helopoulos’ work is a welcome guide for new pastors as they confront the many difficult issues new pastors regularly face.

Where was this book when I was first ordained? Ultrapractical and stuffed full of timeless wisdom, this is a book I will recommend often and reread regularly.
