When Bob Russell became the pastor ofSoutheast Christian Church in Louisville, it was just120 people meeting in a basement. When he retired forty years later, it was nearing 20,000. Though his ministry was clearly successful, he d be the first to tell you it wasn t perfect.
In "After 50 Years of Ministry, "Bob reflects on the best of what he s learned (sometimes the hard way) about ministry and leadership, like how to:
- Respond to criticism
- Stop comparing yourself to other pastors
- Handle a staff moral failure
- Prioritize preaching in your schedule
- Build trust with your elders
- Make better use of downtime
- Protect your marriage
Marked with Bob s humor and warmth and packed with great stories and illustrations "After 50 Years of Ministry "is sage advice from a man who practiced faith, put his hand to the plow, and saw God work. If you are in leadership of any kind, don t miss this chance to learn from one of the best."
