Dale Sellers of 95Network believes this trend is largely due to discouragement among small-church pastors. Many church leaders begin ministry with dreams of making an eternal impact. But years of striving, stress, and strain have left them feeling defeated, disillusioned, and stalled.
Thankfully, there is hope that ministry can turn around for the discouraged pastor. As a former minister who’s been in the trenches, Dale Sellers reveals that …
In Stalled, you will discover your sweet spot and realize you are closer to being "there" than you know.
"Discouraged. It's how every leader has felt at one point or another when we want to be somewhere we're not. Dale navigated his own experiences of disappointment in himself and uncovered key truths about leadership in ministry that can anchor and guide us today" - Carey Nieuwhof, bestselling author, podcaster, speaker
Take a look at this short video to hear the heart behind this book.
Ultimately, Stalled comes from a portion of Dale's years pastoring when he felt like a disappointment to Jesus because he hadn't built a big ministry yet. He felt like he could never do enough. And after meeting many pastors who felt the same, he knew he needed to share his journey.
"You're going to love this book. Dale is not only a good friend; he's a partner in ministry. He loves Jesus, and he loves the churches he serves. And beyond that, I trust him. The wisdom he shares is essential for pastors in their leadership. More importantly, though, his stories and experiences will reshape your view of your life. Your purpose. Your calling." - Tony Morgan, founder and lead strategist of The Unstuck Group
