Most seminary graduates will begin their ministries with plenty of important head knowledge to share--but with a deficit of some of the most practical aspects of doing ministry, such as:

  • which ministry role most suits them
  • how to start out strong at a new church
  • persevering during difficult seasons of ministry
  • leading meetings and delegating tasks
  • safeguarding their family
  • fighting discouragement, pastor envy, and a lack of contentment
  • navigating special ministry needs, such as hospitals, weddings, and funerals
  • and much more

Through his hard-won wisdom, Jason Helopoulos comes alongside new pastors as a trusted friend and mentor, ready to guide them through their first years of ministry with intelligence and compassion.
