For 55 years Rowland Croucher through his pastoral ministries and via John Mark Ministries has undertaken a remarkable ministry to pastors, church workers and those in mission who have found the going not only tough, but sometimes even toxic.
His wisdom and careful analysis is such that church authorities have taken on board his written submissions. Over a life time in this ministry Dr Croucher has often been interviewed on television on a variety of matters, but largely focused on the issues of the pastor’s heartache.
Now, he is attending to his keyboard with great care and sensitivity in compiling the issues associated with his ministry consultations by such as those described above – pastors, church workers, missionaries, missioners and of this ilk.
It was my privilege to interview Rowland Croucher for the Australian Missionary News IPTV and this short 6 min interview may be viewed on YouTube:
