Right now, many pastors are asking themselves challenging questions:

Does our work really matter?

Can we actually make a difference?

Can we rebuild amid the clutter of debris from cultural shifts?

As the Lead Pastor of New Life Downtown, Dr. Glenn Packiam is no stranger to these questions. Armed with experiential insight and thorough research from Barna, he’s offering clear, hopeful answers in his new book, The Resilient Pastor.


If you want to better understand the trends of secular culture and develop a vision for navigating these challenges,

The Resilient Pastor can help.


As Packiam himself puts it, “It is possible to last, to be faithful, to be resilient—not by might, not by power, but by the same Holy Spirit who sustained the church throughout the centuries.”

The Resilient Pastor aims to give pastors much needed energy for a new season of ministry  and will give other Christians an inside look at a pastor’s desire to be a faithful shepherd in the midst of our turbulent world.
