Christian ministry is not a sprint; its a marathon, a long-term race, requiring not just initial enthusiasm and ability, but staying power. Unfortunately, a growing number of Christian ministers dont seem to possess that staying power. 44% of all pastors who have been involved in ministry for more than 15 years suffer from “burn out”, mental break down or serious illness. And that doesnt include those who fail to continue in active ministry for other reasons, such as immorality or loss of faith. “Going the distance” is about making sure youre not one of those statistics. Drawing on decades of biblical reflection and experience, Peter Brain explains how to keep fit mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually for the long-haul. This is a book for anyone engaged in Christian ministry, whether lay or ordained, and would be an ideal book for pastors to read with their lay leaders.
