Learning, training, and growing as a shepherd brings:

  • Joy as people follow you as you follow Jesus. 1 Corinthians 11:1; Hebrews 13:17
  • Respect because you have worked hard, you have encouraged, you have admonished, and the people are at peace because you have been willing to endure the pain that brings peace with God, yourself, and others. 1 Thessalonians 5:12, 13
  • At your graduation, you will receive a crown of glory given by the Chief Shepherd. 1 Peter 5:1-4

New book about interim ministry

When a preacher stays a long time, usually the church doesn’t like the next preacher. I volunteer to be the next preacher they don’t like.
