Where is ministry in America headed today? Dr. John MacArthur says, "I am concerned over a growing trend to produce strong natural leaders who know how to manage a business or enterprise but do not understand the church from Christ's perspective. Their leadership style and substance is earthly, not biblical or spiritual."
Our Lord's favorite metaphor for spiritual leadership, the one He used most often to describe Himself, is that of the humble and hardworking shepherd. This book shows that biblically authentic ministry includes prayer, holiness, worship, discipleship, servant-hood, and compassion—and that all ministry must be based on biblical mandates, not worldly ambition.
Encouraging, insightful, and challenging, Pastoral Ministry is designed for a new generation of shepherds who seek to lead with the passion of the apostles. This guide outlines the biblical priorities essential to effective ministry.
