As we begin a new year, here are some thoughts for those of us who would disciple men.
In 1656, Puritan writer Richard Baxter penned The Reformed Pastor, a classic and still-in-print book to instruct leaders how to be effectively shepherd a flock. He wanted to help pastors understand, “What does a pastor do?” and “What kind of oversight does a pastor provide for his flock?”
Baxter bequeathed us the following seven tasks. They still capture the hearts of pastors all over the world who study his book so they can become more effective at discipling and shepherding men and their families. May they inspire us too.
Can any of these seven tasks help you better focus your ministry this year?
