He believes this analogy is important because ministers often don't understand that they need time to settle into the family and to learn the family's habits and traditions, join in the festivities, and respect the members who have supported the congregation through the years. From there he offers insights on how to do what pastors do best and how to provide an environment in which members want to lead. Galloway continues by exploring a wide range of topics pertinent to pastors, seminarians, and those considering the call to pastoral ministry. The remaining chapters have the following tentative titles: The Body of Christ, Commitment, Spiritual Renewal for the Sake of Mission, The Mission Committee, Money Follows Vision, Knowing What People Give, and Tithe.
