In this volume, two of today's most respected authors help pastors recover their gospel identity and clarify their vision of Christian leadership. Eugene Peterson and Marva Dawn reconnect pastors with biblical texts that equip them to be countercultural servants of the gospel. In his chapters Peterson explores 1 and 2 Timothy and Titus, drawing from them scriptural images for pastoral identity. In alternating chapters Dawn turns to Ephesians for instructions to churches seeking to live faithfully against societal tides. This book is for anyone involved in church or parachurch leadership or for anyone now preparing for ministry.
A thorough exploration of what biblical servanthood is, why each Christian is called to serve, and how to grow as true servants of our Lord.
Jesus wants mature disciples. This book shows how to squeeze joy out of sorrow, truth from pain, and make permanent advances for the Savior.
Youth ministry veteran and bestselling author, Duffy Robbins, offers an updated and revised edition of his book about the important, behind-the-scenes mechaincs of youth ministry. The tasks of budgeting, decision-making, time management, team ministry, staff relationships, conflict resolution, working with parents, and a range of other issues, are the things that keep a ministry together and functioning well. Nobody gets into youth ministry because they want to think about these things; but a lot of people get out of youth ministry because they didn’t think about them. All youth workers—whether paid or volunteer, full-time or part-time—will find Youth Ministry Nuts and Bolts to be a thoughtful, fun, practical guide to youth ministry administration.
Being Salt addresses both ordination and leadership by taking as its point of departure the most distinctive yet often overlooked feature of ordination: indelibility--being ordained for life. Sumner wholeheartedly agrees with the Reformation emphasis on the ministry of the whole people of God. Still, he argues that we can only understand priesthood if we understand what one is ordained for. Indelibility--lifetime ordination--provides an entree to the question of what sets the ordained apart. In sum, Being Salt offers an evangelical argument for a catholic practice and so goes to the heart of what Anglicanism understands itself to be.
“When are you going to become a real pastor?”“When are you going to get your own church?”“How long will you be here?”During his thirty-one years serving in churches across the country, Doug Fagerstrom has both known the joys of being a ministry staff member and experienced many misconceptions of the role. In The Ministry Staff Member, he draws on his vast experience to correct false notions and provide a clear, accurate understanding. This comprehensive and practical handbook provides staff members—paid and volunteer, church and parachurch—with invaluable tools for success and helps those around them to better understand and appreciate the importance of what they do. Dozens of sidebar articles and suggested resource lists provide a useful toolbox you’ll want to turn to again and again.
