by Jessica Bealer and Gina McClain
Making it in ministry isn’t as easy as some might think. After all, it’s not like you’re a superhero. With every unsuccessful outcome, dropped ball, or negative interaction, you hear the same question in your mind, “Am I still ‘called’ to be doing what I’m doing?”
But don’t hang up your cape just yet. The best journey is one in which you have the confidence of calling and an intentional strategy that gives you practical hope through the difficult times. Staying with it takes tenacity, vision, purpose, and a plan to make every day and every person count.
In Don’t Quit, Gina McClain and Jessica Bealer draw on their own extended experiences in some of the nation’s most well-known family ministries to encourage every leader to stay superhero strong.
Don’t Quit will be available soon, from Orange and Amazon.
