Lead Pastor
The Journey Church

Dear Pastor,

Have you heard this story before: In the middle of a sermon, the usher hands the pastor a note from an unknown party. The note says just one word — “Fool.”

The pastor proceeds to open the note, read the note and then replies, “I’ve heard of people who wrote letters and forgot to sign their names, but until now I have never seen one who signed his name but forgot to write the letter!”

I love that joke for so many reasons but mainly because it reminds me that you and I are not exempt from criticism. Ever.

You’re just never going to please everyone all of the time. Even if you deliver the most impactful sermon of your ministry, and see many people getting saved, there will be someone with a negative word to say.

Dealing with criticism and difficult people is a very real issue for pastors. In fact, the average pastor leaves the church because they can’t stand the criticism of between 5 and 7 people.

You are not alone — every pastor faces criticism. And there is only one sure-fire way to avoid it:

Do nothing, say nothing or be nothing.

In other words, criticism is unavoidable. And because criticism is unavoidable as pastors, we must learn to manage it — or risk fulfilling our calling.

As a pastor who is a daily target for criticism, just like you, I’ve developed Biblical methods for managing and responding to criticism. Formed over my 25 years in ministry, these hard lessons learned from my experience, and the experience of other church leaders, will not only stop criticism from derailing your mission — they will help strengthen it.

I want to share them with you today in a brand new resource that will encourage you with powerful reminders and tools based in Biblical wisdom.

How to Handle Criticism:
A Pastor’s Guide to Overcoming, Growing from and (at times) Ignoring Criticism

You’ll learn a 9-step system for managing criticism that will radically improve your daily work in ministry. Through this resource, by learning to face criticism head-on, instead of falling victim to it, you have an opportunity to grow as a leader and be even stronger for it.

Complete Pastor’s Kit including Audio Training, Leader’s Guide, Listener’s Guide, Transcript and More!

In this extremely practical resource for dealing with criticism, you will discover:

No one is immune from the pain of criticism — it can cut right through you and threaten your effectiveness. Whether you’re wrestling with this pain right now or some day soon, don’t let it derail your ministry.

Let’s overcome this challenge together and strengthen your systems — you can take measures today to safeguard your church leadership from the daily threat of criticism!

Your partner in ministry,


Nelson Searcy
