Item description for Support Your Local Pastor: Practical Ways to Encourage Your Minister by Wes Roberts & Eugene H. Peterson...

Pastors today are burning out at a faster rate than ever. On top of ministry responsibilities, they struggle with loneliness, fatigue, family problems and even depression. They minister to others for a living, and often receive little care in return. Roberts helps identify the specific needs of pastors and offers creative ways you can encourage your pastor and help him avoid burnout.

Publishers Description
Your pastor needs your helpYOUR PASTOR NEEDS YOUR HELP.70% of pastors do not have someone they would consider a close friend. 80% believe that pastoral ministry negatively affects their families. 100% of pastors need their congregation's support.Pastors today are burning out at a faster rate than ever. On top of ministry responsibilities, they struggle with loneliness, fatigue, family problems, and even depression. They minister to others for a living and often receive little care in return.You can help, says Wes Roberts. As a pastor of pastors, he understands the specific needs of those in ministry today.

And you'll discover the ideas of more than 100 people on both sides of the pulpit, offering creative ways you can encourage your pastor and help him avoid burnout.

Reviews - What do customers think about Support Your Local Pastor: Practical Ways to Encourage Your Minister?

Essential  Jan 26, 2001
Many people do not relize the necessity of support for pastors and ministers. As a pastor's daughter I daily see the stress, pressure and frustration weighing on my father. This book has excellent suggestions for ways to bless those who bless others. There is no way any pastor or religious worker can perform their duty to the community and God without the support of EVERYONE in their congregation. Please read and use!
An essential resource for caring for your pastor  Aug 26, 1999
(Initial review Aug. 25, 1999)
I'm now reading it thru for the 2nd time, the first being two years ago. I have put some of the suggestions into action and have had great success with them. If you have a good pastor (I have the best one in the world) and you want to encourage/assist/take care of him, you simply must read this book. It has so many practical ideas in it, and they are pretty easy to put into action. Now, two years later, knowing my pastor better, some of the ideas are more timely, so the book is fresh even the second time around. But make no mistake, there are many things you can do right away!

I have alot of "how to" books, and this one goes on the top shelf. Recently, my pastor told me "Jamey, you are a pastor's dream". This book will help YOU get the same compliment.

I wish everybody in our congregation would read this book - You know what? I think I will buy it for them!!

2005 - Recently we used this book as a guide to determining benefits, vacation, time off, sick time and things like that for our Pastor.
exceptional encouragement from pew to pastor  Jun 22, 1998
Practical...doable...easy to use and follow...a must for all people interested in seeing their pastors thrive and grow in their ministries. Especially useful for church boards. Can also be useful for those searching for new pastors.
