In our series, Politics in the Church, we've seen that church is often not a safe place for pastors. Stepping into the role of church leader can be like stepping into a hurricane. One of the most dangerous things for a pastor is to be naive about that.

Join Steve Brown, along with pastors Kevin Labby and Randy Greenwald, as they talk with Michael Osborne about his new book Surviving Ministry: How to Weather the Storms of Church Leadership. If you're a pastor, you'll see that you're not alone, and that just might give you something to hold on to so you don't get blown out the church door.
