Pastors are trained and rewarded for being biblically smart and ministerially efficient, so much so that their own spiritual lives can become an afterthought. And a church being lead by a spiritually drained pastor cannot reach its full ministry potential. This book is designed to help pastors hear and identify the voice of God in their personal lives and in the lives of their churches. Roger Barrier motivates and inspires pastors to listen for God's direction in issues like suffering, humility, pain, forgiveness, doubts, and ministry. Barrier discusses the dangers of listening for God's voice as well as the unending blessings that come from knowing that you are doing his will.
In this changing culture, pastors need dedication to do what God wants them to do. They need to hear and heed God's voice. Most pastors enter ministry to accomplish great things for God's kingdom. But that drive to make a difference--and the long hours that result--can crowd out the voice of God. In fact, the passion to build a church and the passion to know God often turn out to be mutually exclusive. In this book, Roger Barrier writes candidly about his inability to hear God's voice amid the demands of pastoring-and describes how he learned to hear God afresh when he dealt with the thorny issues of pride, spiritual warfare, and personal pain.
Roger Barrier pastors Casas Adobes Baptist Church. He holds degrees from Baylor University, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and Golden Gate Seminary. Parents of three daughters, Roger and his wife live in Tucson, Arizona.
