Serving in the ministry comes with great sacrifices, join William Sanborn as he shares his ministry walk story in his new book "Ouch! When Ministry Hurts"

CHICAGO, Ill. – Kharis Publishing today announces the release of “Ouch! When Ministry Hurts” (ISBN: 978-1637461327) by William Sanborn, elements of ministry that often get neglected.

Serving Christ is a fantastic privilege.

Serving Christ is the hardest thing you could imagine.

So, which is it?

“Ouch! When Ministry Hurts” tackles that question for anyone serving Christ — whether in full-time ministry, in a part-time role or as a volunteer — and aims to encourage you through:

  • Scripture examples when things went great or when it all fell apart.
  • The author’s experiences — good, bad, funny and sad — through fifty years of ministry, starting on campus, then as a pastor, and finally with military kids at the Army’s Fort Carson. Will has seen, if not all, a lot! 
  • Anecdotes from others in ministry.
  • Plus a good amount of humor, because tears without laughter is a sad state indeed!

According to Hope Mango, Club Beyond Community Director (Young Life Military), Fort Hood, Texas, “Serving in ministry often comes with misconceptions from those in the community you serve. Who would not love to get paid to hang out with kids or adults, take them to do fun things, and talk to them about their faith? But the reality is, ministry is often difficult and quite lonely. In his book, “Ouch! When Ministry Hurts,” Will Sanborn talks about the elements of ministry that often get neglected. He provides amazing insight from his own experiences, while encouraging those serving in any sort of ministry capacity. I wish I’d had this book as I was starting my journey, but I love that I have it as an encouragement now as I continue pursuing ministry.
