California-Nevada Pastor Writes Pastoral Leadership Book
Retired California-Nevada clergyperson, the Rev. Arthur Gafke, just release a book entitled "Strong Ministry: Strengthening Your Pastoral Leadership." Gafke says a model of ministry that allows pastors to see their many functions as part of a unified whole is missing as pastors are being pulled in too many directions to be the kind of ministers God called them to be. The three key pastoral skills of building relationships, nurturing organizations, and empowering others form the heart of the "organizer" model of ministry.
The book is available from Amazon, Barnes and Nobel and from www.ArtGafke.com. The book is also available in e-book format.
