From the respected long-time director of the Midwest Ministry Development Center, this invaluable resource is based on a popular series of workshops on the topic of “Health and Excellence in Ministry.” Intended for ministry leaders of all types, this volume offers practical wisdom for developing healthy patterns of behavior in all areas of personal and vocational life. Featuring the three principles of excellence:

• Separation of Self and Role;

• Always Choose Strength; and

• Straight from Jesus.

The book concludes with real-life application of the principles in actual ministry settings, from gossip and conflict to weddings and pastoral calls. Includes a chapter dealing with the challenges of social media and financial management in ministry.
