In sports, every athlete learns how to “play hurt” through injury. Playing hurt separates good from great athletes. Pastoral ministry is no different. Many times, in ministry the pastor must “play hurt!” The Pastor does not have the liberty to take time to heal. The only difference is that the owner of the organization understands how valuable the franchise player is and would not risk their player being hurt experiencing a career ending injury. It would be amazing if the church would take a page from the professional team owner’s manual and protect the franchise player. Who is the franchise player? The Pastor.
Playing Hurt invites you into eight difficult years of my life when God used discouragement, death, and depression to prepare me for ministry. This book will encourage the senior pastor, prepare the young preacher, and strengthen the pew member to understand that ministry hurts. Nevertheless, press on!
