Should I stay put or should I move on to another sphere of pastoral ministry?'
How frequently a minister may find himself asking this question and how much does he have to strive in prayer to discern the mind of God who has called him with a holy calling to shepherd his church! Of course, the assumption of the question is that there is a call being extended to a new pastorate. Some men find that they have to wrestle with the question whether they should leave the pastorate altogether - either for a different ministry or in order to retire or to take up some other kind of work.
This helpful little book examines the principles for accepting or declining of a call to a new pastorate and examines them in the light of the Bible, the history of the church and God's providence.
