Lig Duncan on How to Persevere in Ministry

“Anchor your hope in Christ.”

In this new video, Ligon Duncan encourages pastors to persevere in their ministry.


Editor’s Note: Pastors expect to help others through times of suffering. But many do not realize how much they, too, will suffer.

Pastors and ministry leaders who work alongside them need encouragement to run the race with endurance.
