Podcast Episode #023

I recently wrote a blogpost on the eight areas ministers are often unprepared for ministry. The post created quite a stir and brought with it a great discussion. These are areas almost all ministers will experience difficulty at some point in their careers. We look over the points I mentioned in the post and expound on some of the issues involved.

  1. Relational intelligence.
  2. Leadership skills.
  3. Dealing with critics.
  4. Family matters.
  5. Finances.
  6. Consumer mentality.
  7. Uneven expectations.
  8. Uneven spiritual growth.
