The authoras purpose for writing this book is to help young ministers who are seeking to pastor their first church. There are many young ministers who donat know the procedures for accepting a church. Therefore, the author has penned those procedures from the Called into the Ministry to the First two years of the Pastorate. There are many books for the young minister that address what to do once the church calls a pastor, but there are very few books that give instructions on what to do in order to acquire a church. This book not only focuses on the young ministers, but also may be helpful for the veteran preachers who have been in the ministry for some period of time never pastoring a church.
