Fit For The Fight
"Fit for the Fight" is written by Dr. Jim Fisher to encourage pastors in their journey of biblical shepherding and as an exhortation for holistic care.
Dr. Fisher has a heart for pastoral wellness. As a 15-year veteran of church ministry, he has lived both the blessings and the burdens of pastoral ministry. His concerns for wellness, the direction of pastoral leadership and unrealistic congregational expectations, led him to Ph.D. studies. Jim is an active military chaplain with over 28 years of enlisted and officer service. He is a veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. Jim has served as a seminary trustee (first vice-chairman) and has taught as an adjunct professor for three colleges and two seminaries. He and Tracy have been married for more than 26 years and have three children.
Dr. Fisher is a graduate of the University of Mobile (B.S.), Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (M.Div.), and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (Ph.D.)
