Pastoral Priorities, Part Two

From Series: The Pastor's Study, Volume 6

Acts 6:1-7  (ID: 2876)

How should a pastor prioritize the many demands placed upon his time and energy? Alistair Begg emphasizes that this question must not be answered by looking to the expectations of the congregation, but by examining what the Bible has to say. The pastor's priority must be the faithful preaching of God's Word, undergirded with prayer and with Jesus in view. Faithful ministry of this kind builds up the congregation and equips the people for acts of service.
