Dever on Pastoral Ministry

“If you’re not willing to be disliked, you shouldn’t be in the ministry.”

This and tons of other good stuff from Mark Dever when he preaches about the four P’s of evangelical (meaning “gospel”) ministry.

  1. Preaching
  2. Prayer
  3. Personal discipling relationships.
  4. Patience

It’s worth your time (as it usually is when Dever speaks about the church or pastoral ministry). You can get it here.

You're disliked, so you've got this one covered. ;-) You don't have to try so hard though. :-D
