Product Description

Ministry breakdowns don't "just happen." Usually problems such as burnout, ineffectiveness, and moral failures are preceded by a complex mix of internal and external factors such as a leader's unaddressed need for relational intimacy, a misunderstanding of God's call, unrealistic expectations, or inadequate resources. This interactive guidebook equips you to predict and prevent such pitfalls. 224 pages, softcover from InterVarsity.

Publisher's Description

Great ministers don't just happen. Great falls from ministry don't just happen either. A complex mix of factors both internal and external test the limits of your ability to minister wholeheartedly over the long haul. Senior pastor Brad Hoffmann and licensed professional counselor Michael Todd Wilson work with pastors removed from their place of service. The common experiences of these pastors revealed patterns that consistently contributed to burnout, ineffectiveness and moral failure. If such patterns can be predicted, the authors reasoned, can they be prevented? Preventing Ministry Failure is a personal guidebook for pastors and other caregivers to prepare them to withstand common pressures and to flourish in the ministry God has called them to. Work through the exercises and reflections individually or in conversation with your peers, and you'll find yourself better equipped for the challenges of vocational ministry, and more conscious of the presence of God leading you on and restoring your soul.
