Practical Advice for Weary Leaders Who Want a Gospel-Centered Culture for Their Church
Being a pastor is hard. Whether it's relational difficulties in the congregation, growing opposition toward the church as an institution, or just the struggle to continue in ministry with joy and faithfulness, the pressure on leaders can be truly overwhelming. It's no surprise that pastors are burned out, tempted to give up, or think they're going crazy.
While we're quick to assert what the gospel says, we're often too slow to admit what the gospel should do for our churches: reflect Christ's beauty through a godly, grace-filled culture.
In this practical guide, seasoned pastors Ray Ortlund and Sam Allberry help weary leaders renew their love for ministry by equipping them to build a gospel-centered culture into every aspect of their churches. Emphasizing the importance of healthy doctrine, they explain that failing to also nurture a healthy culture can be frustrating, polarizing, and even unbiblical. This encouraging guide features Scripture-focused advice on honesty, honor, preaching, leadership, and mission to support leaders and help them regain a beautiful, Christ-centered vision for their ministries.
