Character Matters: Shepherding in the Fruit of the Spirit

A call to faithfulness

Pastors are expected to do a lot of important things. But Scripture is clear on what's most important: God expects pastors to be faithful. An overflowing auditorium is no substitute for personal holiness. In Character Matters, Aaron Menikoff offers a guided tour through each fruit of the Spirit.

"In a culture that values competency over character, Christians need to be reminded that the ascended Christ calls faithful men to lead his church by example. Aaron Menikoff understands the rigors of ministry and the temptations pastors face. So, in Character Matters, Menikoff calls church leaders to reflect upon their personal holiness—through the lens of the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22–23)—in order that we may lead by example."

"I needed to read this book. I need to read this book. I will need to read this book. Aaron has done a sweet service to pastors in crafting a book that reminds them they are sheep! This is a book about a pastor’s first ministry, namely, to walk close with the Lord and bear much fruit as a disciple. It’s warm, convicting, and full of grace—just like its author. This work will definitely spur you on to love and good works in your personal walk with Jesus."
