In this book, Fernando identifies the foundational elements that allow you to be both effective and joyful in your service. He shows from Jesus' own ministry that relating to the people you minister to, retreating from busyness to prayer, being affirmed and empowered by God, discipling younger leaders, and gaining strength from God's Word must be at the heart of your ministry.
Rich in Scripture and full of stories from Fernando's own years of ministry, this book will help men and women commit themselves afresh to those vital basics of ministry that make for long-term service that is both fruitful and joyful.

Danny5 Stars Out Of 5May 19, 2008DannyThere has never been a book on pastoral ministry that has impacted me like this one. It challenges the conventional thinking of the American pastor. The author confronts many of the mind-sets and attitudes of ministers today and challenges the reader to move on to a truly biblical ministry. Do not read this book unless you are willing to search your heart and attitudes. It will rock your world!
