The Personal Challenges of Ministry

Home > Pastor's Blog > The Personal Challenges of Ministry

On Wednesday Night, Feb 26th, we will continue our “Winter Bible Study” from Second Corinthians and discuss the “The Personal Challenges of Ministry.” In chapters 10 – 13, we see the Apostle Paul responding to some people at the church in Corinth who were accusing him of being a hypocrite, of lacking spiritual power, of not being a good speaker, of not being worth his pay, of lacking impressive ministry credentials, and of not providing visionary leadership. Any of these criticisms can be hurtful to a minister’s feelings and sense of self-worth.

If you have been serving in some aspect of church ministry, you have probably had the ego bruising experience of being criticized for something you may or may not have done. Please answer the question of the week (you may choose more than one response):
