In Word and Work: An Intersection, Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, President Emeritus Dr. Dale A. Meyer talks with Dr. Darrell Zimmerman, executive director of Grace Place Wellness, about the ins and outs of ministry. Zimmerman is the author of Reclaiming the Joy of Ministry. “There’s this tremendous irony of [pastors] proclaiming the grace of Christ and His undeserved love and favor that is for all people and then being very critical toward themselves,” Zimmerman says. Some pastors are “great dispensers of grace but not so good at being receivers of grace.” In the book, Zimmerman guides readers through a detailed analysis of the hazards of ministry life and helps them discover new possibilities for a long, joyful and fruitful career in ministry. Learn more about the book at Reclaiming the Joy of Ministry. In the audio version, listen to an online presentation by Zimmerman. Learn more at Concordia Theology
