God wants men of integrity and industry who will carry out their tasks with energy, enthusiasm and endurance. To meet those qualifications, a pastor must set priorities.

Help, My Husband Is a Pastor!

As a woman begins to serve in ministry with her husband, she quickly learns that the life of full-time Christian service is not the exalted and glamorous existence that she may have anticipated and that laypersons often imagine. While ministry living is privileged in the spiritual sense, it is simultaneously pressured in the human sense. “To minister” means “to serve,” and serving drains our human resources. How can a pastor’s wife keep herself from drying up—or blowing up?

A Veteran Minister's Regrets (About His Sermons)

I'm a veteran. A veteran minister. I received the call to preach in April of 1961, which means we have recently passed the half-century mark for that anniversary. I began pastoring in November of 1962, and was ordained on December 2. I served 6 churches as pastor for 39 years and one as a staff minister for 3. Does this qualify me as a veteran?

Why I Do What I Do

I told a story to our church this past weekend as part of the ending of a series on parenting. The more I’ve reflected on it, it’s about why I do what I do.

Leadership, Unity, and... Attila the Hun?

Whereas the Hun nation and our Bible-believing churches have absolutely nothing in common, the similarity between Attila's leadership task, and the role of a pastor, is uncanny.

Gospel or Justice, Which?

Some evangelicals talk as though personal evangelism and public justice are contradictory concerns, or, at least, that one is part of the mission of the church and the other isn’t. I think otherwise.

Why I Don't Evangelize

Here I am walking the planet and ignoring the greatest need of people. I can talk to them about weather, sports, food or whatever, but Jesus? This is not on my tongue.

The Church in Post-Christendom (Part 3): Recovering the Mission of the Church

If the ecclesiocentric view of the church’s mission tends to focus on the building and maintenance of the institutional church (a place of like-minded believers), then a proper theocentric view will focus the organic church (a people who believe and obey) on the mission of God or missio Dei.

The Church in Post-Christendom (Part 2): Understanding the 'Good News'

What exactly is the church’s mission? In order to answer this question, we must first accurately define the gospel.

Holiness is a Community Project

John Calvin for Everybody

Calvin is too important to leave him frozen in caricature, and he’s too significant to leave him simply to his tribe of theological partisans. He offers rich insight to all in the Christian tradition, including those who consider themselves the furthest away from “Calvinism.”

Rob Bell Not the First Megachurch Pastor to Step Down

The Chicken Littles of the Evangelical World

Have you ever noticed that so many of the “prophets” and pundits of our day are Chicken Littles, announcing, “The sky is falling! The sky is falling!”
