The first years of ministry can be enormously challenging, as any seasoned pastor can testify. A new tool that can be of real value to the young minister is The New Pastor’s Handbook: Help and Encouragement for the First Years of Ministry (Baker Books) by Jason Helopoulos. The author (a PCA pastor) explores a variety of themes and situations that can challenge young pastors, and provides practical counsel and warm encouragement to help them navigate choppy waters. This would be a great book to share with young ministers as well as those studying for pastoral service.
