Tools of the Trade – Week of April 5, 2021

A Weekly List of Links and Resources Especially for Pastors

I hope you had a wonderful Easter! Here is some great reading for this week.

A must read: Anxious People Need Shepherds Who Point Them to the Chief Shepherd.

Peter Mead takes a break from writing about preaching in this article on The Local Church and the Missionary.

I’ve recommended articles by Tim Reigle several times. Tim is our music leader and has a ministry helping men addicted to pornography. He asks, Do You Have Perseverance?

Eric Raymond – A Tool for Reading the Bible Devotionally – make copies and pass them out.

Here’s a link to a YouTube video by Bryan Chapell on The Place of Application in preaching.

This article was published originally in 2017 but was reprinted last year. Stephen Altrogge tells us 3 Things I Know About Ministry Now That I’m Not In Ministry.

Garrett Kell tells Pastors, Train Future Pastors. What better place to learn how to pastor than from other pastors?

This will help you deal with the cultural push to deny sexual identity. Solid stuff.

Do Not Nod Your Head to Lies.

This is just good reading for any pastor in any church in any location. Paul Levy urges us to Keep Your Head.

Trevin Wax, whose articles are included here on a regular basis, has a new book coming out this next week, I believe. It is not listed on Amazon yet, but the title is The Multi-Directional Leader. You can learn about it here.


Have a great week of ministry!!

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!
