Synopses & Reviews
Introducing the PastorServe Series from David C Cook, a line of resources developed to stem the tide of pastoral burnout and crisis.
In Survive or Thrive Jimmy Dodd reveals that the majority of pastors are not known—by anyone. They purposely isolate themselves from both staff and congregations so their insecurities, doubts, and failures aren’t exposed. Yet confiding in the wrong person can be a dead-end at best and disastrous at worst. Former pastor Jimmy Dodd reveals how those in pastoral ministry can receive ongoing support, accountability, and restoration from a boss, counselor, trainer, mentor, coach, and good friend.
Discover how you can move from surviving to thriving with the six relationships every pastor needs.
Jimmy Dodd addresses six key relationships every pastor needs to invest in to move past insecurities, doubts, and failures. The goal isn’t just to survive a current crisis—but to prevent future crisis in both your ministry and personal life through accountability, support, and friendship.
