Glorious Finish

Keeping Your Eye on the Prize of Eternity In A Time of Pastoral Failings.




What separates pastors who finish well from those who don’t?

When trusted pastors fall into sin and destroy a ministry, the entire body of believers gets hurt. After helping two large churches through the aftermath of such an event, Daniel Henderson discovered that pastoral failings are not primarily rooted in overdeveloped passions for self and sin but rather in underfed visions of eternity and a lack of zeal for God’s glory.

In Glorious Finish, Daniel Henderson teaches you:

  • Why focusing on God’s glory is the key to a fruitful ministry
  • How leaders can build habits that keep them captivated by God and His glory
  • How to stay glory-oriented in the grind, challenges, and spiritual attacks of ministry

Forget the latest techniques and the strategies—spend some time recentering on what you know is most important—His glory!
