Product Description

Thousands of ministers burn out every year; others fall prey to sexual temptation. With piercing honesty, Leaders that Last dismantles stale stereotypes about pastors and offers hope for handling their recurring, daily struggles.

Serving a church is a lonely businees, no matter how big the congregation. A pastor is expected to be nearly perfect, modeling holiness, generosity, and kindness. In need of moral and emotional support, pastors often try to go it alone, satisfied with a collection of acquaintances but no true friends. Contains an important message from two authors who understand the difficulties that come with ministering 24-7...with no Sundays off. Paperback, 176 pages.
