Both new seminary graduates and experienced pastors have expressed their need for solid, practical advice - the kind of solutions you don't hear much about in seminary. This comprehensive book is loaded with advice from someone they can trust. Drawing on their combined wealth of experiences pastoring a wide variety of churches, Pastors Warren Wiersbe and Howard Sugden tackle practical questions such as - How can I determine whether I am called to the ministry, and how important is the assurance of a special call? How can I get started on the right foot in a new place of ministry? How do you go about removing "dead" officers and teachers? How can we best assimilate new converts and new members to the church family? How can I be a faithful pastor. husband, and father all at the same time?
