Like having a serious conversation with a mentor or coach in the ministry, "The Shepherd's Covenant for Pastors" offers the equipping that pastors need to maintain their commitment to live their lives and ministries with authenticity and integrity. Readers will covenant with God and with one another to maintain a life of holiness and righteousness by committing to five basic principles built on an acrostic of G.R.A.C.E. This inspiring book includes input on the importance of maintaining and developing each principle, stories of pastors who have experienced positive and growing ministries by applying the principles and a series of exercises for keeping in spiritual shape.
