He'll show you the way to overcome these inhibitors and inspire you to embrace a Christ-centered ministry that is spiritually aligned, physically energized, emotionally connected, and mentally focused. If you are struggling with overcoming mediocrity or the comfort of just being "good," QUANTUM MINISTRY will show how the way to restore your measure of greatness and make the leap to a more rewarding, engaging, and fruitful ministry in the service of Christ.

Publishers Description
Ministry is a uniquely demanding vocation. Of those who begin pastoral ministry in their 20s, less than half continue to retirement. Other studies have found that 75% of pastors say their self-esteem is lower now than when they first entered the ministry. This diminishing romance for pastoring is often linked to the haunting feeling that their efforts are not making much difference in people's lives. Their insecurity ends up rationalizing underachievement, and many eventually give up or burn out. In Quantum Ministry, Pastor Randy Berkner adopts the belief that good is the enemy of great. He exposes the faulty assumption that average is acceptable and examines the various factors that contribute to underachievement and discontentment among pastors. Pooling from his own experiences and those of other pastors, Berkner addresses unrealistic role expectations, stressful credentialing requirements, low salaries, disorganization, the lack of a clearly defined purpose, and so on. He shows pastors the way to overcome these inhibitors and escape the destructive pull of the whirlpool of mediocrity. He inspires them to embrace a Christ-centered ministry model characterized by obedience, servanthood, excellence, and accountability, and outlines specific steps they can take to maximize their ministries. Berkner explains that the pastors who make the leap to quantum ministry are spiritually aligned, physically energized, emotionally connected, and mentally focused.For pastors and church leaders struggling with mediocrity or the comfort of just being 'good, ' Quantum Ministry offers a way to restore their measure of greatness and make the leap to a more rewarding, engaging, and fruitful ministry in the service of Christ.

Reviews - What do customers think about Quantum Ministry: How Pastors Can Make the Leap?

Good ministry help  Jan 14, 2008
The idea good is the enemy of great is discussed with suggestions for being great.
 
Great Book for a Pastoral Reminder  May 15, 2007
Dr. Berkner's book was an easy read and a book full of a wide range of ideas which were easy to apply to a variety of situations in any Pastor's career. While reading the book, I found myself asking over and over, is this "correction" or "advice" true to where I am now in ministry? The shot gun writing of a wide range of ideas and helps comes from a pastor's heart for the many shapes and sizes of the pastors he cares for and mentors. I think this book would be helpful to a new pastor because of some often repeated advice that bears repeating the whole of someone's career. The book takes the ideas and makes them applicable because of the author's call to do some goal setting, self-reflection (and the appendixes). Because of the good advice, the exhorting, and the pastoral mentoring, any new pastor or someone returning to the pastorate would ask, "Where am I now in the ministry?" "Where am I going?" "And how do I get there?" This book will help in maximizing the pastor's calling.
