The stories that pastors tell in this book speak to all these questions and more. Louis Tamminga reflects on the mixed motives that dogged him in ministry and witnesses to the Christ who sustained him by grace. Joel Kok, Kathy Smith, and Herman Keizer explore how technology, church order, and the sacraments do not stifle but, instead, expand the spirit. Leonard Vander Zee, Joel Boot, and Pedro Aviles offer insight into how hurting people can find healing in the church. Richard Sytsma, Cecil Van Niejenhuis, and Richard Williams explain how dedication to both the church and its mission leads to joy.
Designed for a wide spectrum of readers, Persevering in Ministry offers reading enjoyment and honest encouragement for all.
