The first few years in Pastoral ministry are often thrilling and demanding. God sends many challenges to both humble and excite you in His service. One moment you feel overwhelmed by the difficulties the next it’s the sheer privilege of seeing Christ work through your ministry and it’s all part of a days work for God’s servants. These are formative years – years that mould your thinking and character as a man of God for future service. They are also years when the friends you make may be some of the greatest encouragements for your future ministry.
The For His Glory Project
It’s incredible how quickly a ‘history’ can be developed! The New Pastors’ Work of the EMW started in 2009, when we organised a conference for men who were in their first five years of ministry. The aim of the work was to support men as they worked through the first few years and unique challenges of ministry. During the coming years we organised five conferences with roughly 60 men passing through the programme, gaining valuable support, life-long friends and teaching. Some of the recordings from those first conference can be found on our website.
During the situation with Covid-19, we have been providing to support pastors, new and experienced alike, in our weekly TeamTalk meetings. For the latest info and to view past recordings, please visit this page.
