Tom Nelson understands a pastor’s life. He also knows that when pastors flourish, churches flourish, and then communities flourish.
We have never needed our pastors more than we do right now but many of them feel overwhelmed and want to quit. Don't miss the encouragement as this veteran pastor points us to the Shepherd of our souls for healing and renewal.
