Book Summary of On Pastoring by H.B. Charles Jr.


Pastoring is a joyful, difficult, and vital work. Shepherding God’s church is not for the faint of heart, and it’s not for the man who has not been called. In order to pastor well, we need to learn from the wisdom of Scripture and the experience of faithful pastors.

Pastoring is more than preaching. Pastors need to cultivate their hearts in order to guard their spiritual health, families, and ministries. Rather than chasing their own fame and glory, pastors need to leave a godly legacy of piety and sound preaching.

Pastoral leadership is central to pastoring but is often neglected or frowned upon. We must learn how to handle conflicts, raise up leaders, and grow in our faith. Leading the church well ultimately means loving the congregation as Christ loves them.

Though the pastor’s heart and behind-the-scenes work is vital, his public ministry is most visible to the congregation and the public. Pastors are worship leaders who help set the pace for public worship through public and private prayer.
