The Multidimensional Pastor
The Many Facets of Pastoral Ministry
by Samson L. Uytanlet
A number of books have been written on the various roles of the pastor, and many of these works focus on one particular aspect of the pastoral ministry only, or just a few of them. The Multidimensional Pastor is an attempt to bring together and discuss in a single volume these various elements of the pastoral ministry with a goal of looking at principles from the Scripture to guide the pastors as they fulfill these various roles. The purpose of this work is to provide a balanced perspective and a bigger picture of the pastors’ functions, while acknowledging their personal limitations. In this way, readers can develop a more realistic set of expectations from a pastor and celebrate the variety of expressions of the ministry.
