The Work of the Pastor

The work of pastors is different from other jobs. They don’t work to become rich or to achieve more prestige. Rather, they often work long hours for little or no salary. Why does anyone want to become a pastor? Because pastors are called by God to this special mission.

This book covers the various aspects of what it means to be a pastor, especially in the various cultures of the world where local churches are rarely able to support a pastor with a full-time salary.
