On today’s episode of Equipping You in Grace, I interview Jason Helopoulos about his new book The New Pastor’s Handbook: Help and Encouragement for the First Years of Ministry (Baker Books 2015).

Listen here:

About the Book:

New Pastors Handbook by HelopoulosMost seminary graduates will begin their ministries with plenty of important head knowledge to share–but with a deficit of some of the most practical aspects of doing ministry, such as

– which ministry role most suits them
– how to start out strong at a new church
– persevering during difficult seasons of ministry
– leading meetings and delegating tasks
– safeguarding their family
– fighting discouragement, pastor envy, and a lack of contentment
– navigating special ministry needs, such as hospitals, weddings, and funerals
– and much more

Through his hard-won wisdom, Jason Helopoulos comes alongside new pastors as a trusted friend and mentor, ready to guide them through their first years of ministry with intelligence and compassion.
