Format: Paperback
Well after 30 years in the ministry it was time to change careers. I was faced with an dilemma that every change of career pastor faces: How in the world do I market ministry skills in the work place? Too many of my colleagues have not been very successful transitioning from ministry to business. . . they end up working in mortuaries, rest homes, and YMCA's at less than desirable salaries. After working for a very modest salary for my entire career, I was looking for someway to make a good living.

This book helped me in two ways. First, it helped me put in the language of business the skills I acquired in ministry. Second, it gave me valuable help in writing a resume that was appropriate for my new career. Here is a word of advice: You may be tempted to skip the first chapter and start thumbing through the book looking for an appropriate resume. Please do not do this. Read the introductory material first.

This book was an invaluable resource for my successful career change and it can help you achieve the same success that I have.
