Ministry can be a very discouraging vocation. The discouragement can be caused by a whole host of issues: criticism from church members, lack of participation in worship, a church that seems stuck or dying, relational conflicts with key leaders, family problems, and even betrayal by ministry allies.

So how do we press on in ministry when times get hard? How do we keep going when we feel like giving up? In this episode I give five things to do to battle discouragement in your life and ministry. Forward this episode to any friends who are having a hard time. Let’s soldier on together!
