C. Randall Bradley is Professor of Church Music and Director of the Church Music Program and Center for Christian Music Studies at Baylor University. His classroom teaching and practical experience inspire this book. It includes sections on Philosophical/Theological Issues; Personal Issues; Employment and Vocational Issues; Working with Church Staff; Involving Others; Promotion; Organization and Time Management; Facilities and Purchases; Dealing with Transition; and Ministering in Special Situations.
There are also helps on Working with Committees and Working with Difficult People, Housing Allowances, Social Security Taxes, Financial Management, and Avoiding Burnout. There is a Minister’s Compensation Worksheet, a Minister’s Housing Allowance Worksheet, and an extensive Bibliography and Index. The material will help you negotiate all those "nitty-gritty" details that fill your days from Monday to Saturday.
This book will help not only those who have been in Music Ministry for a while, but also those who are just starting their careers. Church Music classes will find From Postlude to Prelude invaluable.
