While pastoral ministry certainly carries rewards and pleasure, it is not without challenges. Churches are filled with broken, imperfect people, often yielding a turbulent environment for pastors and members alike. Many ministers of the gospel walk into a church naive regarding the potential hazards of their vocation. They are vulnerable to difficult people, unresolved conflict, incompatible visions, hidden agendas, mission drift, and sin--their own and that of others. Other pastors feel trapped in a ministry hurricane and don't know what to do. They feel like failures and consider leaving the ministry. They are looking for help and hope--not from an 'expert' detached from the real world of ministry--but from someone who has suffered through church hurricanes and lived to share the story. Moreover, they need to know they are not alone.
In Surviving Ministry: How to Weather the Storms of Church Leadership, Pastor Michael E. Osborne offers his own story as well as many other true stories from other pastors who have been in the eye of the hurricane. With honesty, humor and humility, Osborne offers discouraged ministers, seminarians, congregational leaders, and laity encouragement and biblical, practical, gospel-centered advice for storm proofing their churches, homes, and hearts. Surviving Ministry will equip them to stay resilient before, during, and after seasons of difficulty.
