    Ministry is hard. Especially these days. What are the characteristics a leader must possess to survive over the long haul? How do you avoid burn out? What will keep you going when the going gets tough? What sets leaders apart from those who don't last long or quit when it gets difficult? How do you keep going when you face overwhelming challenges? Why do some keep going when most fizzle out? Find out from a leader who has stuck with it for decades even through very hard times. In the midst of Covid-19, it's a timely message.
