Publishers Description With over 900,000 copies sold, books in Judson Press's "Work of the Church" series, including the bestseller The Work of the Usher, have provided sound practical guidance in support of local church ministry in a variety of areas. The Work of the Pastor has now been added to this impressive list of resources. Rather than dictating a rigid job description, author Victor D. Lehman develops his ideas and perspectives based on the understanding that there is no one right way to be a pastor. Pastoral duties may differ based on the ministry situation and the pastor's particular areas of giftedness. Nevertheless, there are certain core duties that are widely associated with pastoral ministry, and there are many other possibilities pastors should consider as they strive to increase their effectiveness in ministry. Topics range from sermon preparation and marriage counseling to managing a staff and addressing personality conflicts in the church. The Work of the Pastor offers words of advice and helpful perspectives for all pastors, and for those who are contemplating pastoral ministry. It will be especially beneficial for the small-church pastor, who frequently must meet a wide variety of congregational expectations.

Reviews - What do customers think about Work Of The Pastor?
Recommended reading from members of church boards Mar 9, 2005
Rather than laying out a rigid job description, The Work Of The Pastor by Victor D. Lehman (Lead Pastor, First Baptist Church, Fargo, North Dakota) presents ideas and perspectives based on the understanding that there is really no single correct way to be an effective pastor. There are simply too many variables within congregations and their pastors for any "one size fits all" job description. Instead, Pastor Lehman focuses on core ministry duties essential to the vocation of pastor. Of special interest is the beneficial focus upon the obligations of small church pastors having to address a diverse range of congregational expectations. Also of great utility is the advice offered and perspectives given for the benefit of all pastors regardless of the congregational assignments, as well as those who are contemplating a pastoral ministry of service to the Christian community. The Work Of The Pastor is also very highly recommended reading from members of church boards charged with the tasks of recruiting, overseeing, and evaluating pastors for their churches.
