"What does it take to persevere in ministry?"
The number of pastors who actually cross the finish line in vocational ministry is depressingly small. Excitement and exhilaration often turn to disappointment and depression, and we lose all too many. Is there hope?
With openness and frankness, Pastor Kelly Williams offers a stark and realistic portrayal of the very real and meaningful struggles we all face in doing ministry. He shares from the "trenches" of church and ministry, as well as in the home, and tackles the core issues with grace and hope.
Kelly's wisdom, born out of weaknesses of the flesh and his own spiritual struggles, is both articulate and devoted. Through his own trials and the disciplines God has honed through his life and ministry, he offers fresh ways to rediscover the disciplines, principles, and commitments to serve the Lord.
