Leaders That Last: How Covenant Friendships Can Help Pastors Thrive

Gary Kinnaman and Alfred Ells M.C.

A Pastor can't go it alone. With the stress that comes with a life of service, leaders can too easily stumble, burn out, or feel the need to leave the ministry altogether. Leaders That Last provides a solution to this problem of going it alone. By submitting to a mentoring relationship, building strong friendships, and being challenged by fellow pastors to stay faithful to the call, a leader can find balance while he or she grows. The proven "Pastors in Covenant" model described in this book shows how to form small help groups with other trusted colleagues. These teams hold eachother personally and professionally accountable and provide a lifeline during troubled times.
