The Imperfect Pastor

Dear Pastor . . .

In this video, Zack Eswine—author of The Imperfect Pastor: Discovering Joy in Our Limitations through a Daily Apprenticeship with Jesus—shares his own story of unchecked ambition, painful loss, and the stunning realization that true faithfulness is not synonymous with ministry success.

Listen as Zack explains what happened when he took a long look in the mirror and asked himself, "If I'm not a pastor anymore, do I still matter?"

That's when Jesus began to show him what true greatness really looks like.
