Publisher's Description

Learn Ministry from One of the Best

When Bob Russell became the pastor of Southeast Christian Church, it was just 120 people meeting in a basement. When he retired forty years later, it was nearing 20,000.

Though Bob's ministry was a clear success, he'd be the first to say it wasn’t perfect. In After 50 Years of Ministry he shares why. He reflects on the best of what he’s learned—sometimes the hard way—about ministry and leadership, like how to:

  • Respond to criticism
  • Protect your marriage
  • Stop comparing yourself to other pastors
  • Handle a staff moral failure
  • Build trust with your elders
  • Make the best use of downtime

Hilarious, warm, and full of great stories and illustrations, After 50 Years of Ministry is sage advice from a faithful servant of God. If you are in leadership of any kind, don’t miss this chance to learn from one of the best.

Editorial Reviews

"This should be required reading for every seminarian who intends to pastor. An inspiring and thoughtful review of the best and worst of ministry. Easy to read but deep and insightful."

    After 50 Years of Ministry: 7 Things I'd Do Differently & 7 Things I'd Do the Same is a book by former pastor Bob Russell for those going into ministry. He explains 7 things he would do differently if given a second chance, and 7 things he would do the same. This is a guide for future pastors, some advice for when they enter the ministry of a church.

    Each chapter is a tip or piece of advice, with explanations and examples. Some of this advice includes living with less fear, paying less attention to criticism, and to stop comparing yourself to others.

    I am not planning on going into ministry at all, so I am definitely not the target audience for this book, but I really did enjoy it. Bob Russell writes with such a friendly voice, and much of his advice can be used by anyone in their lives.

    I definitely recommend this book to anyone in or entering a life of ministry. I think it will be very helpful to you, and it's always nice to get advice from someone who has gone though everything that you will be going through.

    Also, even if you're not going into ministry, I'd recommend the book to you, too. The advice he gives is still applicable and very important.

    Overall, I have this 4/5 stars.

    *I received a copy of this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
