Pastors and laypeople must work as a team. When we stop working together, animosities begin to develop and the forward progress of the church is slowed. The pastor has personal responsibilities. He or she must preach the Word and administer the sacraments. He or she must also equip the saints and release them to participate in the exciting work of the ministry.
In How to Bless Your Pastor, author Bob Broadbooks explores one of the great joys of being pastor: the interaction and relationship between the pastor and the laity. Through humorous and inspirational experiences, he shows readers how working for the Lord can encourage and bless and pastor and his ministry.
