The Goals, Tasks, and Practicalities of Pastoring God’s People


Pastoral ministry is, in many minds, synonymous with pulpit ministry. Yet pastors, as their name suggests, are not only preachers but shepherds. They are “those who will have to give an account” (Heb. 13:17), working as under-shepherds to the Chief Shepherd (1 Peter 5:2, 4), the one to whom the sheep belong. They have been charged with caring for the flock.

Alistair Begg on Visiting Albania


Dear Friend,

The UN came into existence in October 1945 to maintain international peace. Seventy-nine years later, we are living in a broken world where strife and disorder among people and nations is arguably worse than at any other point in history.
