In Prepared to Pastor, Jimmy Dodd and Renaut van der Riet offer PastorServe's proven twenty-four pastoral competencies that church leaders need to develop healthy, biblical and sustainable leadership.

Church leaders take courses in preaching and Christian education. But what about understand a personal limitations and the benefit of intimate friendships? What about conflict resolution? Often it's knowledge gaps like these that lead to frustration and burnout.  

Through extensive interviews with hundreds of pastors over three years, PastorServe discovered that most issues leading to the downfall of church leaders are seldom discussed in seminary. PastorServe identified one hundred of these missing competencies and then distilled the list down to twenty-four lessons pastors need to succeed.
Prepared to Pastor helps close the enormous gap between the preparation pastors receive for ministry and the knowledge they actually need for real-life ministry.
