  • Navigating The Future

    $19.99

    Traditioned innovation is a habit of being and living that cultivates a certain kind of moral imagination shaped by storytelling and expressed in creative, transformational action. Moral imagination is about character, which depends on ongoing formation that takes place in friendships and communities that embody traditions and that are sustained by institutions.

    There is no quick-fix or set of techniques that will create a mindset of traditioned innovation. But we do believe that you can learn to cultivate it by:
    *Becoming immersed in an imaginative engagement with the story of God told through Scripture

    *Learning from exemplary institutions, communities, and people practicing traditioned innovation.

    *Discovering new skills for integrating character formation and dense networks of friendships, communities and institutions into your leadership and life.

    Navigating the Future will explore stories and tips for cultivating traditioned innovation that will stimulate your thinking and inspire your imagination for more faithful and fruitful living along with the cultivation of more vibrant, life-giving institutions.

  • John MacArthur Handbook Of Effective Biblical Leadership

    $34.99

    An overseer…must be above reproach. 1 Timothy 3:2

    Scripture holds leaders and teachers of the Word to an incredibly high standard. And for good reason. Shepherding God’s children into salvation is an enormous responsibility. Even more now than ever, today’s church needs great leaders who faithfully proclaim the Word of God and equip believers to live it out. But great leaders need great role models.

    Bestselling author John MacArthur has compiled, from the internationally renowned Shepherd’s Conference hosted at Grace community Church, the best-ever messages for Christian leaders–now available in a single volume. Alongside MacArthur’s candid, instructive writings you’ll find the works of other proven ministry leaders, such as John Piper, Steven Lawson, RC Sproul, Ligon Duncan, and Al Mohler.

    Whether you’re a pastor, elder, or leader in your church, or someone wanting to be more effective in your spiritual leadership, you will learn to…

    guide others with integrity and conviction deliver God’s Word with passion and power accurately interpret and apply God’s Word
    When you accept the challenge to be a leader who is above reproach both in ministry and personally, you will become better equipped to fulfill your calling to lead with excellence. Continue Reading John MacArthur Handbook Of Effective Biblical Leadership

  • ReMission : Rethinking How Church Leaders Create Movement

    $16.99

    A systemic disease is lurking inside the church that is derailing it from what God intended it to be, to know, and to do. That disease is practical ignorance and isolation. If the church is to be healthy and thriving, its members must gain the needed know-how and skillsets to meaningfully engage with their increasingly difficult-to-reach unsaved neighbors, communities, and cultures in productive conversations about the good news of Jesus Christ. In other words, there must be a re-missioning of the body of Christ. Blending honest analysis with innovating principles, ReMission places the onus of change at the feet of today’s leaders. Each chapter of ReMission builds upon the next to practically equip leaders with tried-and-tested solutions that can outwardly mobilize a congregation, small group, or nonprofit ministry, and substantially increase the spiritual vitality of the body of Christ, both locally and globally. ReMission isn’t only focused on developing new outfrastructure; its aim is also to breathe new life into God’s kingdom and His chosen leaders who are serious enough to implement the life-changing strategies that are sorely needed.

  • Lies Pastors Believe

    $12.99

    All of us are tempted to believe lies about ourselves.

    For many pastors, the lies we’re tempted to believe have to do with our identity: that God has called us to lead a movement, that we must sacrifice our home life for our ministry life, or that our image as holy is more important than our actual pursuit of holiness.

    In Lies Pastors Believe, pastor and professor Dayton Hartman takes aim at these and other lies he has faced in his own ministry and seen other pastors struggle with. With a winsome and engaging style, Hartman shows current and future pastors why these lies are so tempting, the damage they can do, and how they can be resisted by believing and applying the truth of the gospel. Continue Reading Lies Pastors Believe

  • Beyond Stewardship : A Church Guide To Generous Giving Campaign

  • Focusing Your Church Board

    $11.99

    Church boards are often the scene of confusion, conflict, and chaos. What’s the job of a board? What’s the role of the pastor in relation to the board? Should there be an elder board and an administrative board? Ted Hull’s use of illustrations and analogies bring these questions-and answers-into focus.

    Ted first looks at the foundation of governance, both from a biblical and historic perspective. Then he introduces Policy Governance(R), often referred to as the Carver model, and confronts questions regarding whether this secular model can work in the church, or if it should even be allowed. He even argues for why a church board may not want to use Policy Governance.

    When you’re done reading, you’ll never look at the role of a church board in the same way again. In fact, whether you’re a member of your church board or the board of any charity, you’ll find yourself reaching for this book more than once. Continue Reading Focusing Your Church Board

  • Minding His Business

    $22.99

    In most cases, when a church needs a lawyer, it hires a lawyer. When it needs a plumber, it hires a plumber. But when it comes to making business decisions, most churches convene well-meaning but often inexperienced volunteers to form a committee, then they take a month and vote on the color to paint a door in the nursery. Conducting business this way kills the vision and drains the passion out of right-brained, creative, relational pastors and ministry leaders.

    The modern church is being poorly managed and does not know it. The level of inefficiency and waste in today’s churches is staggering. The church is not a business but it conducts business, and in most cases, the people conducting church business are not trained and/or experienced in business.

    This book was written to convey basic business wisdom, management principles, and best practices to right-brained, creative, relational people (i.e. pastors). Unlike intimidating business textbooks, it is written in forty short vignettes designed to be read like a daily devotional. Each chapter deals with everyday challenges and offers real-life examples derived from more than thirty years of experience that show how to (and sometimes how not to) handle each situation. Continue Reading Minding His Business

  • Building Church : Practical Wisdom For All Church Builders

    $14.99

    Building Church is the culmination of 30 years of Stephen Matthew s experience as a leader and church builder. It contains the distilled wisdom and lessons learned from the process of repurposing a church with passion and direction. He insists that anyone who offers a model for church building or church growth must do so in a way that is transferable to other contexts – and this is often not possible. So instead, he offers here the timeless principles of Scripture as the building blocks of ‘the church everyone wants to build’ and, more importantly, ‘the church God wants you to build’.

  • Church Administration Handbook (Revised)

    $29.99

    What’s new about this third edition of the long respected and often used Church Administration Handbook? In addition to time and technological-sensitive updates to the basic organizational details, editor Bruce Powers writes:

    The needs of people and churches have continued to change, with questions now being raised about the quality of congregational life, nature of leadership, and responsibility for ministry among all believers . . . As we have prepared this edition, we have sought to address five primary needs.

    1. Leadership skills and administrative tools that can be adapted for use in a variety of contexts from traditional to contemporary, from rural to urban, and from unicultural to multicultural settings;
    2. Spiritual formation that relates to all of life (from birth to death);
    3. Mission consciousness (in community, regionally, nationally, and globally);
    4. Ministry of all believers (particularly calling out and equipping vocational, bivocational, and lay ministers); and
    5. Leadership competence (the ability to inspire, motivate, and equip the saints for the work of ministry). Continue Reading Church Administration Handbook (Revised)
