Pastoral Ministry in the Real World
Loving, Teaching, and Leading God's People
Jim L. Wilson
Pastoral Ministry in the Real World not only explores the character of a worthy minister, but also his three primary functions: loving, teaching, and leading God's people. The book applies the timeless biblical instructions for pastors to the ever-changing realities of today's ministry environment.
