Pastoral Ministry: Things I’ve Learned Along the Way…
August 14, 2012
By H.B. Charles Jr.
This is not a scientific list. It is in no particular order of importance or category. Just a collection of thoughts. I am sure the list would be much longer if I kept writing. And I would probably replace some things with other things, if I took more time with it. But for whatever it’s worth, here about 103 things about pastoral ministry I have learned along the way.
1. Your primary responsibility as a pastor is prayer and the ministry of the word (Acts 6:4).
2. Sheep bite.
3. Faithful preaching does not guarantee church growth.
4. Just because there is a crowd does not mean there is a church.
5. Nothing is as good as it seems; nothing is as bad as it seems.
6. Don’t assume anything.
7. All church fights are bad. But some church fights are necessary.
8. It happens after prayer.
