The Church Member's Manual

The Church Member's Manual

What is the purpose of membership in the local church? What are the expectations of the church member? These questions are explored and answered in this book which offers scripturally based directives for productive service in the local church. Calling upon thirty years of ministry and a lifetime in the church, Patrick L. Kelly argues that church members need to be taught about the responsibilities and duties of local church membership. Modern churchgoers are more concerned about benefits and privileges, but he points to the necessity of partnership and cooperation. When believers also view membership as an opportunity to covenant with and serve the body of Christ through a local ministry, greater productivity in the Kingdom of God can be accomplished. The Church Member’s Manual will enable the individual to know exactly what is expected of him or her, and to be equipped for maximum productivity in the local church. more

The Pop-Up Pastor

The Pop-Up Pastor

This book is intended to help inform, lead, and encourage those either entering ministry or those who are struggling to balance ministry. It is designed to help ministers and leaders recognize the traps of overcommitting, lack of delegation, and people pleasing snares. Anyone who desires to be in ministry will confront the lifelong struggles of keeping balance in life, families, ministry, and more. The draw of people, their hurts, their pains, and their calls beckons the heart of a pastor. However, how you keep your sanity in the process is crucial to your success. Attempting to be everywhere, for everyone, every time is a commendable, yet dangerous ambition. Ministers, especially those who are new to the call, will benefit from the lessons found in The Pop-up Pastor, rather than the ones from the School of Hard Knocks. more

The Worship God Wants

The Worship God Wants

Showtime, My Time or His Time? When we come to a church worship service, what time is it? Is it showtime, when leaders step on stage with a performance-driven mentality? (God expects our best, but does He want a show?) Is it my time, with people coming to church with a filling-station mind-set? (God blesses His people, but is it so they can go home saying, "I got mine"?) Is it His time, when individuals push aside tiredness, worries, and frustrations to focus on the living God? (God is "looking for those who will worship him ... in spirit and in truth" [John 4:23-24 NLT] .) In this book, you will find Biblical, historical, philosophical, and practical perspectives on the worship God deserves and demands. "God wants the best of our ability in both worship and service. God has given us His best in His beloved Son and our Savior. May this excellent book motivate us to give to God our best as we worship and serve Him." -French L. Arrington Jerald J. Daffe, D.Min., is professor of pastoral studies and coordinator of the pastoral major at Lee University. He is a member of the International Church of God Doctrine and Polity Committee, and the author of ten books. more
