Publisher's Summary

Featuring insights from the perspective of both a pastor and his wife - The Pastor's Family identifies the complicated burdens and expectations ministry brings to the life of a family. Brian and Cara Croft identify the unique challenges that pastors face as husbands and fathers. They also discuss the difficulties and joys of being a pastor's wife and offer practical advice on raising children in a ministry family. In addition to addressing the challenges of marriage and raising children, they also highlight the joys of serving together as a family and the unique opportunities pastors have to train their children and lead their families.
With discussion questions for use by couples and pastoral reading groups, this audiobook is ideal for pastors and their spouses, pastoral ministry students and their wives, as well as elders, deacons, and others who wish to remain faithful to the care of their families while diligently fulfilling their calling in ministry. The Pastor's Family equips pastors with time-tested wisdom to address the tension of family and congregational dynamics while persevering in their calling.

A must for every pastor/spouse!

My husband and I just listened to this while we took some time for a minister getaway. This is so powerful! I am going to recommend it to our state denominational leaders to give/recommend to new leaders in vocational ministry.
We were both challenged and touched by the admonishments, stories, and encouraging words. It was refreshing to hear both author’s voices and their perspectives as fellow laborers who “get it”. There is much to glean from their wisdom, and this was a timely God-send for us. Thank you!!!
