Pastoral Perseverance

Helping Pastors Stay, Endure and Thrive

Brian Croft and James B Carroll


The call to ministry is a call to lay down your life for others.

It seems we have reached an unprecedented time of burnout and depression among pastors. These men often dedicate their lives to shepherding congregations without anyone who will care for them. Pastoral Perseverance could not have come at a more crucial time.

Seasoned pastors and authors, Brian Croft and James Carroll, strengthen pastors by pointing them to God’s word for help in facing the unique challenges of pastoral ministry in the modern day so that they will not merely survive, but stay, endure, and even thrive.

Selected Commendations:

“With biblical insight, refreshing realism, and faith-fueled hope, Brian and James coach us pastors into a lifetime of perseverance and resilience as we negotiate the minefields of pastoral ministry. I benefited from the deep wisdom of these pages and commend this book to every fellow pastor.”

Dane Ortlund, Author, Gentle and Lowly, Senior Pastor, Naperville Presbyterian Church

“Croft and Carroll have provided a very important text for those either in church leadership or aspiring toward it. With biblical depth and practical wisdom, they lay out a model for developing pastors and carrying out the ministry with a Word-centered, theologically driven methodology."

Tony Merida, Author, Love Your Church; Pastor, Imago Dei Church, Raleigh, NC

"Brian Croft and James Carroll provide a well-thought-out roadmap toward pastoral perseverance. Avoiding cliche-type advice, they face the barriers to perseverance with biblical answers applied in the crucible of real-life ministry. I finished the book encouraged and refreshed, with new insight to press on in ministry."

Phil A. Newton, PhD, Retired pastor; Author, 40 Questions About Pastoral Ministry; Director of Pastoral Care & Mentoring for the Pillar Network 

"It’s always tempting to unplug, either by throwing in the towel and quitting or by becoming a robot just going through the motions. Brian Croft and James Carroll argue there’s a better way – the path of Jesus, the faithful shepherd who didn’t run away and flee when he saw the wolf coming. Stick with Jesus and his word, counsel brothers Croft and Carroll."

Harold L. Senkbeil, Author, The Care of Souls

"Well acquainted with the challenges of ministry, Croft and Carroll offer a biblical, systematic, and wise treatment of pastoral perseverance. But they also address the heart, urging pastors not only to preach the gospel of grace but to imbibe in it."

Jonathan Dodson, Author, The Unwavering Pastor; Founder of
