Overview
Church workers are at increased risk of sadness, despair, stress, frustration, anger, and disappointment. When your job involves directly serving others, there are inherent vocational risks involved—and these risks are larger when your vocation is to connect human experience and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Finally, each of these risks is even more likely for workers of the church because they walk closely in step with the life experiences of the people they serve.

Author Bruce Hartung presents the challenges church workers face daily, along with positive and encouraging strategies for how you and your congregation can support your pastor and other church workers. Each chapter deals with crucial topics such as job stress, finances, marriage, housing, and other common experiences in the lives of pastors, professional church workers, teachers, and DCEs.
 
When a church worker walks closely with people, he or she sees the very important Gospel-to-human experience connection in the lives of each individual. They bear the blessing, and challenge, of helping others see those same connections.

Let's come alongside our church workers to support them in body and spirit as they nurture the body of Christ.


About the Author
Dr. Rev. Bruce Hartung holds a doctorate in Pastoral Psychology and Counseling and is currently Dean of Ministerial Formation at Concordia Seminary, Saint Louis.
