A dead-end job? A sure route to burnout? Congregational staff ministry is neither according to Kevin Lawson. Rather, he presents ample evidence that associate staff ministry is a calling with its own identity, integrity, and exciting possibilities. Based on his groundbreaking study of more than five hundred associate staff members in sixteen denominations, Lawson demonstrates here the communication and self-care skills that people in these often highly specialized positions can utilize to grow beyond mere survival into dynamic ministry. Foreword by Lovett Weems Jr., president of St. Paul School of Theology.
