Pastors are busy people. They are usually running from one appointment to another and trying to keep up with their church’s schedule. “Small things” creep in that end up not being so small. Let’s be honest–meeting with hurting people and ministering is a crucial part of the job. You are called to be a shepherd. Loving people well is part of that.
The downside, however, is that doesn’t leave a lot of time for the long-term projects you should also get to. Reading that commentary to prepare for the sermon? Sometimes it doesn’t happen. Reading the book that will help you think critically about culture? It has to wait.
So you don’t do it. It can wait.
But then you save sermon research for the last minute–or maybe you just throw together some initial impressions on the text and organize it into something coherent.
And your reading list waits until later.
The result is that you are neither nourishing the members of your church or yourself.
And this is how Ministry Assistant Services can help.
We can introduce you to the latest big theological book releases or give you a handy review of a classic book you have not read yet but it is time to read.
Our theologically trained team will help you craft a well-researched, written and presented position paper on any theological topic that aligns with your church or denomination’s beliefs.
Ministry Assistant Services equips preachers by providing research help, outside perspectives and illustrations to help make the text come alive.
