The New Pastor’s Handbook by Jason Helopoulos
(Baker Books; ISBN 9780801018350; ebook ISBN 9781493400362; $14.99)

With his hard-won wisdom, Pastor Jason Helopoulos comes alongside new pastors as a trusted friend and mentor, offering help and encouragement through the first years of ministry. He shows pastors how to start out strong at a new church, persevere during difficult seasons of ministry, fight discouragement, and navigate special ministry needs.

“I wish I could have read this book when I was just starting out in ministry,” states Kevin DeYoung, senior pastor of University Reformed Church. “This personal, practical volume will serve as a valuable guide for many young pastors, and quite a few older ones too.”

Jason Helopoulos (ThM, Dallas Theological Seminary) is associate pastor at University Reformed Church in East Lansing, Michigan. Ordained in the Presbyterian Church in America, he has pastored three churches and speaks at conferences and retreats. A contributor to the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals’ Christward Collective blog, Helopoulos also blogs for the Gospel Coalition and is the author of A Neglected Grace.
