Paperback | 212 pages| Bruce Garner

Ministry is getting harder. Burnout, discouragement, and sinful collapses are destroying the lives of pastors and damaging churches. Relief won’t come from the culture: national surveys show that an alarming number of people are falling away from the faith or dismissing it as irrelevant. What are people in ministry supposed to do?

If the work won’t be easier, pastors must become more resilient.

Drawing on Scripture, timeless pastoral wisdom, the study of human resilience, and training developed for first responders, this book identifies the traits that make Christian workers resilient. It teaches them habits that will help them grow strong, peaceful, and joyful. Best of all, each reader will be left with a personalized plan to become more effective, enjoy ministry more, and finish their course well.

“I’m so excited that my wonderful Pastor wrote this much-needed book. He is a brilliant Bible teacher, is soaked in the fear of God, has a wonderful sense of humor, and a sanctified eloquence that regularly brings me to tears. If you want to do your own Pastor a great favor, give him this book as a gift. He will love you for it.” —Ray Comfort

How to Download videos on iOS Devices

(iPhone, iPad, iPod, etc.)

We recommend downloading your digital download purchases on your computer when connected to WiFi. However, since iOS 11 (2017), Apple mobile devices (i.e. iPad, iPhone, iPod) can download and save MP4 files as well. Here’s how:

After purchase, you will receive an email confirmation with your download link. If you touch that link from a mobile device, the video/MP4 file will load into your browser and begin playing (i.e. streaming) the content. However, the MP4 video download files you are purchasing are not intended to be viewed as a video stream (e.g. YouTube) but instead need to be downloaded and saved on your computer or device for later viewing.


In order to download your purchase to an iOS device, you need to use Safari on iOS/iPadOS, etc. If the email download link loads “full screen” in Safari, exit full screen and touch the “Share” icon, then scroll to “Save to Files” and navigate to the folder where you would like to save the file. Once downloaded and saved, open the native iOS “Files” app (which is installed on every iOS device by default) to locate and view your file in the location that you saved it. Screenshots below:

We hope this helps! Again, we do recommend downloading your digital content from a computer so you will always have it for viewing later, but it is possible to do it from your mobile device as well using the instructions above.
