The life of a pastor is never easy. Congregations, communities, family, and a thousand other things inevitably demand your care and attention. Even in the midst of the joys of serving God's people with the Word, you'll wear many hats and likely suffer lonliness in your office. 

Fortunately, you aren't alone, and you certainly aren't the first. In Navigating Ministry Challenges, you'll find essays from experienced pastors who have shared your troubles. They offer practical chapters on faithfully navigating congregational relations, serving multi-point parishes, and leading church schools, but they also address some of the more personal struggles of the ministry, such as your own spiritual, mental, and physical health throughout your service. 

Learn from these faithful guides, and be encouraged that it is not through your own power that you serve, but the blessed gifts of your Heavenly Father.
