Denny Howard's long career caring for and counseling thousands of ministers and ministry leaders gives him a unique and wise perspective on the challenges ministers encounter throughout the many stages of ministry. This book is an invaluable guide for preventively navigating those challenges and showing the needed steps to continue on the path of the call to ministry.
Denny begins this journey with these words:
"For over three decades, I’ve been involved in a counseling and coaching ministry for nonprofit leaders as well as those serving in people-helping vocations. Over the years, I have formed some deeply held convictions around what it takes for them to sustain their vitality for a lifetime of caring service to others. Captured in this book are many of my insights on the risks and perils of ministry that must be understood and managed for these good people to thrive and flourish."
At Full Strength is a must book for any pastor's library.
As a pastor personally impacted by Denny and his work, I believe in the message of this book. Ministry is a marathon, not a sprint. Anyone wanting to run for the long haul should devour this game-changing resource immediately. —Kevin Rivers, lead pastor of Blackhawk Ministries
