About-

This literary effort is one man's testimony about the extraordinary privilege it is to be a clergyperson or priest in a local parish. The vocation of parish pastor has been for Robert Leverenz a most exciting, humbling, fulfilling life. The story following is uniquely his own and he does not write this to bring to bear the destructive dynamic of competition with others. This book is for anyone who is impressed by the ministries of the church or has had disconcerting moments with pastor and parish; it helps one understand the humanity and the divinity embodied in a community of Jesus followers.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"That's What They Are in For! combines reflection on over forty years of ministry with insightful bites of wisdom for those engaged in ministry. Bob's storytelling approach takes the reader on a journey over four decades in the making, offering lessons from his experiences as a young minister in the early 1960s to his post-retirement. His passion for ministry and encouraging tone is a wonderful offering for those who serve in ministry, and perhaps at times, feel discouraged."
--Steve Lewis, author of Landscape as Sacred Space
