Pastors: are you throwing your hands in the air, ready to quit? Not sure where to go next in your ministry or what God is calling you to? Experiencing burnout or exhaustion? Whether you’re a seasoned pastor or you’re diving into your very first church plant, chances are slim that everything in your ministry has gone off without a hitch. Maybe you’re at a point in your life where you simply feel… stuck.
In this week’s Taking Flight podcast for church planters, which is powered by NewThing, host Jon Peacock interviews Mark Jobe, the founding pastor of New Life Church and author of the book, Unstuck. Jobe shares his personal testimony relating to seasons in his ministry where he too felt stuck. He was stopped in his tracks, and burned out to the point of exhaustion. But God wasn’t done with Jobe’s story, and he isn’t done with yours either. Jobe shares several key takeways for struggling pastors as they strive to surrender to the voice of God even amid moments of great pain.
Learn how Jobe’s church went from “fumbles and failures to innovation and impact,” and find out how the same transformation can happen for you and your church. Be encouraged by Jobe’s story as you fight to grow your ministry, and know that you are not alone in your journey.
Along with being one of the 2017 Alignment Conference speakers, Mark Jobe is the featured speaker at Aspen Group’s upcoming Pastor’s Lunch. This free event for pastors will be held on September 12, 2017 at Maggiano’s in Naperville.
