Bill Ascol offers this helpful definition and call to evangelical courage in Dear Timothy:
By evangelical courage I mean that unconditional commitment to minister the gospel with compassion, regardless of the consequences and no matter the cost. (p.137)
He does an excellent job explaining why we need this type of courage to minister to the various type of people God entrusts to our care. Pastors must courageously fight the temptation to become impatient with the immature; to give up on the wounded; to refuse to seek and restore the erring and wandering; to focus only on the maturing.
Pray that God will bless your church with a courageous pastor.
