Do you feel a call from God to be a pastor? Do you have a desire to lead and serve others? The office and calling of a pastor is the most demanding of the five-fold ministry gifts but it can also be the most rewarding. You should never “choose” to be a pastor but instead wait upon the Lord to confirm to your heart that He has “called” you to serve as a pastor.
Packed with stories that relate to practical experiences, the author shares candidly about his experiences, mistakes and successes over thirty years. The principles found in this book are principles that Pastor Happy Caldwell has taken and applied from the Word of God. He believes that when you keep the Word of God before you all the time and are led by the Spirit of God, you will be successful in all you set out to accomplish. If God has called you to be a pastor, then it is His desire to see you answer that call and fulfill your assignment with joy.
This book is unlike any other I have ever written. It should be read only by married couples, those immediately contemplating marriage, and those who counsel married couples. It is deliberately frank. I have long felt a need for a clear and detailed presentation of the intimate relationship that exists between a husband and wife. Most Christian books on this subject skirt the real issues and leave too much to the imagination; such evasiveness is not adequately instructive. Secular books, on the other hand, often go overboard telling it like it is in crude language repulsive to those who need help. In addition, such books usually advocate practices considered improper by biblical standards. To keep the facts that every couple needs to know from being offensive, I am writing this book with the help of Beverly, my wife of fifty years.
