A Weekly List of Links and Resources for Pastors

Here are some links that you may find helpful. Let me encourage you again to share some of these with your people.

Kevin DeYoung encourages preachers with his article “How to Improve Your Preaching.”

Sometimes we wonder what we’ve gotten ourselves into as pastors. Ronnie Martin helps us with: “I Am A Pastor, Therefore I Fear” is a great reminder for any pastor.

Jason S. Derouchie contributes to the discussion on preaching from the Old Testament in this article called “Jesus’s Only Bible.”

Speaking of the Old Testament, Colin Adams writes “Ten Quick Suggestions For Reading Old Testament Narrative.”

Here’s one to read and share: Lydia Brownback writes “How God Sees Me.”

Jared Wilson’s Podcast discusses the subject of pastors and plagiarism.

Aaron Menikoff gives us “5 Reasons Pastors Ought to Pray for Slow Growth.”

Jonathan Baer reviews book by Jason Allen called “Discerning Your Call to Ministry.”

Tim Challies originally linked to this article by Aaron Wilson on “75 Icebreaker Question for Church Small Groups.”

So good: Devon Provencher’s “An Open Letter to a Children’s Ministry Worker.”

It seems that there is a general reawakening of interest in the Psalms. David Gundersen gives us “5 Reasons Pastors Need the Psalms.”

Eric Schumacher writes “Church Song is Corporate Preaching.” Which is one reason why we need to avoid dopey songs.

Hopefully you are compensated fairly for your work. But if not, this article may be of some help. Greg Phelan answers the question, “Can I Ask for a Raise at My Ministry Job?”

I hope you have a great week! I’ll see you again on Wednesday. Thanks so much for stopping by.

Married to Laura, with three adult children, 7 grandchildren. I’m an avid baseball fan, and I enjoy listening to audiobooks about military history, and reading Theology. I was ordained a Baptist pastor and served two churches over a 41 year period. After a three year hiatus I'm glad to be serving at Calvary Bible Fellowship Church in Coopersburg, PA. And I’m glad you stopped by!
