Book Summary of Pastors are People too by Jimmy Dodd & Larry Magnuson


The nature of pastoral ministry often separates a pastor from the people he serves and the people he reports to, such as an elder or deacon board. Because of this, he is often viewed and treated as superhuman: someone who never struggles or sins. It is easy to forget that pastors are ordinary people, ordinary Christians that God has given a specific calling. 

A pastor needs support from within the church. He needs people to be there for him as he is there for others. His wife and children need support as well. The best way to serve your pastor is to serve his family, for they are his first ministry. Having proper expectations also serves pastors and their families.  

Many people want to help their pastors, but they aren’t sure how. They can help by being there for them in good times and bad and understanding that their pastors are people too.
