Bobby Jamieson: The Path to Being a Pastor

path to being a pastor

A Guide for the Aspiring (Crossway)

WHO: Bobby Jamieson, associate pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington DC

HE SAYS: “Rejoice in being saved more than you rejoice in being significant.”

THE BIG IDEA: This book offers advice to those who are considering becoming a senior pastor on topics ranging from first considering the idea to going through the candidate process.

THE PROGRESSION: In Part 1, “Finding the Path,” the author introduces a change of approach, to saying “I aspire” rather than “I am called.” Part 2, “Walking the Path,” offers a guide through various stages of ministry preparation, from setting an example to teaching to reading and praying.

“In addition to hard work and heartache, pastoral ministry serves up rare joys.”
