Core Qualities of a CT Pastors Article

We're looking for pieces that provide wisdom and tools for working pastors. A published article describes real experiences in powerful prose, painting vivid scenes with which pastors can identify. Tell the story of what happened and what you learned. Readers can see what went wrong and what went right, learning from the experience of someone who's been there. Show that you understand the complexities, joys, and pain of modern ministry. Offer insight on the practical issues: the conflicts, temptations, mistakes, and successes.
