LEADERSHIP AT THE CROSSROADS

$24.50
New/Used: New

Leadership makes a difference. Leaders directly impact the success or failure of any group or church. Excellent leaders direct churches to successfully accomplish their goals, fulfill their missions, and create a vibrant fellowship of believers who significantly influence their communities for Christ. Poor leaders can undermine the mission of a church, devastate the reputation of a fellowship, and sometimes dissolve the ministries of a congregation. The effects of average leaders are variable. They often allow churches to limp along, to become routine, even stale, or to just survive from week to week. Many factors challenge churches already, and ineffective leadership can make those challenges even more difficult to conquer.

A primary reason why leaders struggle so often is a lack of understanding and training in the basic principles of genuine leadership. Further confounding this lack of understanding is the promotion of contemporary philosophies about leadership that can distort those basic concepts of leadership. This ignorance is not the fault of pastors who have a sincere desire to lead effectively, but the training in leadership at many seminaries is often limited. Leadership at the Crossroads addresses some of those concerns. What is leadership? What leadership style works best? How can ministers more effectively motivate their congregations? How can pastors direct the planning process, promote decision making, properly delegate responsibilities, and initiate change? What methods are effective in conflict resolution? These questions, as well as others, are addressed in Leadership at the Crossroads.

    LIFE ON MISSION

    $14.25
    New/Used: New

    If you had a ladder made of splinters, would you stand on it?

    Unfortunately, the mission practices of most churches stand on weak foundations. Life on Mission gives gospel-centered, biblical, practical foundations for how missions was meant to be: an everyone-together effort.

    Life on Mission is a thorough yet simple guide for everyday missionaries--electricians, lawyers, church planters, students, etc.--that equips them with truths and practices for living out the gospel within their own community. Adaptable to any context, Life on Mission functions great as both an individual and small-group study.

    Threaded with engaging stories and probing reflection questions, Life on Mission will help you and your community take bold steps to living life on mission.

    LIVING AT THE CROSSROADS (P)

    $23.25
    New/Used: New
    How can Christians live faithfully at the crossroads of the story of Scripture and postmodern culture? In Living at the Crossroads, authors Michael Goheen and Craig Bartholomew explore this question as they provide a general introduction to Christian worldview.

    Ideal for both students and lay readers, Living at the Crossroads lays out a brief summary of the biblical story and the most fundamental beliefs of Scripture. The book tells the story of Western culture from the classical period to postmodernity. The authors then provide an analysis of how Christians live in the tension that exists at the intersection of the biblical and cultural stories, exploring the important implications in key areas of life, such as education, scholarship, economics, politics, and church.

    LORD CHANGE ME

    $23.25

    Change is hard. It's even harder without practical guidance on how to do it.

    From author James MacDonald:

    "I have written this book to actually help people change. It's for people who desperately want to change, a practical 'How-to' manual... The truths in this book are stained with my own tears of trying and failing and trying again to be the man God wants me to be. So I have written this with the urgency of a loving heart for you and your situation...

    James MacDonald is serious about the business of change according to God's Word, and he walks you through it in three phases:

  • The Preparation for Change: choosing the right method and partnering with God to select the areas you need to see change
  • The Process of Change: exploring the biblical method of saying no to sinful patterns and yes to the things God desires for you
  • The Power to Change: knowing how to experience the power of God personally and continuously
  • Includes study questions, exercises, and single sentence chapter summaries
