Where's the Joy?

June 21st, 2011

This is the sixth in Ministry Matters' new video series featuring pastors and ministry leaders across America. Check back next week to see featured video of Greg Surratt, lead pastor of multisite pioneer Seacoast Church. 

Martin Thielen is pastor of Brentwood United Methodist Church, just south of Nashville, Tennessee. Martin’s most recent book is “What’s the Least I Can Believe and Still Be a Christian?” A Guide to What Matters Most. Complete information about the book, including a free Leader’s Guide for leading a seven-week congregation-wide initiative based on the book, can be found at http://thielen.wjkbooks.com. Many of his sermons are available on his preaching and worship Web site, www.GettingReadyForSunday.com.

Here, Martin talks about the importance of taking care of oneself as a pastor. For his full article on the subject, check out Recovering from a Vocational Near-Death Experience.
