Do you find yourself challenged when it comes to preaching to the lost?
I confess this was a struggle for me, even during the several years I was an itinerant evangelist. The problem was that reaching for the lost was seldom modeled before me. It took me a while, but I finally got it.
Masterful Preaching has improved the preaching effort of many preachers. If the lost are present, then the ninety-and-nine is no longer the focus. One lost soul becomes the focus.
This book teaches you how to study to preach to the lost, topics that work, how long you have available if you are going to preach to the lost, and so much more.
Revival in a Plain Brown Wrapper
Revival is misunderstood. It is imagined to be gaudy and attention-getting. Actually, revival should be an ongoing outcome based on an ongoing effort.
People should be converted regularly - because evangelism, prayer, and disciple-making are being accomplished regularly.
This book originated as a series mailed to over 9,000 preachers in North America as part of a Director's Communique. Many ministers saved these communiques in three-ring binders and could hardly wait for the next one to arrive. Revival in a Plain Brown Wrapper is practical and coaches you on how to lead a "stuck church" into revival.
The Science of Shepherding
What is the job description of a pastor? The Bible actually has an answer. If I don't know what my job is then how can I know if I'm doing it well?
The Science of Shepherding is about growing a pastor to be more effective in Christ's work. Church growth is a "blue sky" fantasy if we do not grow the pastor who leads a church. In leading a congregation's growth from 80 to over 300 the greatest growth and change came in me - the pastor.
This book is practical. It introduces the four primary responsibilities of a shepherd/pastor's job description. And then it suggests how we can best accomplish these in the 21st century. Young pastors have said this book was the most impacting book they have ever read.
Healthy Church - Start Here
A healthy church is a growing church. Growing in a deeper knowledge of the Bible, in a better application of Christian living and maturity. It is also growing numerically.
Why are a high percentage of churches stagnant - with growth only coming from those who relocate their membership? There are no new converts being matured into disciples of Christ.
There are eighteen primary reasons churches get stuck. Healthy Church - Start Here identifies these reasons and provides solutions for rising above these difficulties. Some of the problems:
- Taking spiritual warfare too lightly.
- Unrealistic expectations
- Not teaching and then asking people to give.
- Failing to focus on disciple-making.
Each of the eighteen reasons can be overcome through either moving into the spiritual conflict or taking practical action.
