Not Just an Hour on Sunday

BY DAN DE LEON
@ VOL 3 ON JUN 02, 2015

A pastor's work is never finished. With the socio-religious landscape being altered dramatically by falling church attendance, the rise of social media, and one's faith and spirituality no longer being determined by an hour of worship on a Sunday morning, the demands of pastoral ministry are more complex than ever. Reflecting on ten years of ministry, Dan De Leon gives a glimpse into his experiences as a pastor with hopes of dispelling the myth that ministers only work for an hour on Sundays.
