Underneath, however,  is a central truth: ministry is hard.  Jesus said it would be so. And He provided a model to guide His followers as they serve Him. explores and communicates the biblical disciplines of going the distance in ministry. Through daily article postings and use of outside resources, will provide analysis of the twenty-first century ministry landscape, assistance in understanding and articulating personal ministry calling, discovery of biblical foundations for congregational service, and the personal character necessary for long-term ministry service.


There's a another angle on the agenda. The dynamics of finishing aren't the sole proprietorship of Christian ministry. They also apply to every life situation----relationships, marriage, careers, education, and all of the other meaningful commitments that define life. So, the biblical foundations of for ministry will also strengthen longevity in every human arena.


In a world of short term commitments, learning the biblical disciplines of finishing is essential to our own personal service, and the mission assigned to us by Jesus. Here's a prayer that this new ministry direction will perhaps encourage someone to envision and strive for the finish line in every dimension of personal endevor.
