Overview

Rather than dictating a rigid job description, author Victor D. Lehman develops his ideas and perspectives based on the understanding that there is no one right way to be a pastor. Nevertheless, there are certain core duties that are widely associated with pastoral ministry, and there are many other possibilities pastors should consider as they strive to increase their effectiveness in ministry. Topics range from sermon preparation and marriage counseling to managing a staff and addressing personality conflicts in the church. The Work of the Pastor offers words of advice and helpful perspectives for all pastors, and for those who are contemplating pastoral minsitry. It will be especially beneficial for the small-church pastor, who frequently must meet a wide variety of congregational expectations.
