You're interested in leading a small group, but you're a little afraid. What are you getting yourself into? How do you get started? Don't worry--you're not alone. Many small group leaders feel ill-equipped for the task of leading in spite of the many books, conferences, online resources, and church-based training opportunities that are available.

Other small group books tend to focus on the overall theory of the small group's place in the life of the church rather than the day-to-day nuts and bolts. Small Groups Made Easy focuses on practical pointers, overcoming challenges, and how to lead discussions. Half the book is made up of short sample Bible studies and topical studies that include icebreaker questions, discussion questions about the text, and guides for leading prayer times.

In this book you'll discover all the tools you need to lead an effective small group.

Every church wants to experience the fullness of God, but many feel discomfort and confusion when the question of gifts of the Holy Spirit is raised. What does it mean to move in the power of the Holy Spirit? Isn't the issue of gifts of the Spirit divisive to evangelical churches?Straight Talk on Spiritual Power begins with Bill Hull's own theological journey from being a student at a charismatic university to a cessationist to a pastor with a moderate position affirming the full ministry of the Holy Spirit in the church today. Using Jesus as the ultimate model, Hull searches the Scriptures and finds a consistent balance between the Word of God and the power of the Spirit. He shares the gradual change in his own church as it grew to experience the gospel with power, the Holy Spirit, and deep conviction.Conscious of the fears and confusion often surrounding this topic, Hull carefully looks at topics such as speaking in tongues, baptism in the Holy Spirit, healing, prophecy, and miracles, and offers thorough scriptural as well as practical instruction.

'Being too cautious is the greatest risk of all.'--Jawaharlal NehruIs your church at a crossroads, trying to measure if a risk is worth the reward? Perhaps you're considering a new building project, changing worship styles, hiring a new staff member, or even planting a new church. Do you feel like you're standing on the edge, deciding whether or not to jump? Are you wondering if your parachute will open on the way down?A fine line exists between taking risks in faith and foolishness. Foolishness is like jumping off a tall building—laws of gravity inevitably cause the jumper to get hurt. By contrast, faith dares with God to dream the impossible but also walks in ways consistent with God's principles.Taking Risks in Ministry provides principles for managing risk in a variety of areas including finance, administration, worship, and discipleship. Learn to minimize the downsides of risk and maximize the potential to help your church grow. Well-known church leaders including Dale Galloway, Walt Kallestad, Dick Wills, Wayne Cordeiro, Bill Easum, Elmer Towns, Leith Anderson, Sally Morgenthaler, and Maxie Dunnam share methods for judging the acceptability of risks and lessons they have learned through taking risks in their own ministry.

No one can deny that our culture is opposed to Christian values, and the influences bombarding our children's moral development can be deadly. But few parents and church leaders realize how critical it is to start developing a child's biblical worldview from the very earliest years of life. The problem is complex: parents who themselves did not receive early spiritual training leave their children's training to the church. Yet the church often focuses on older children--not realizing that a child's moral development is set by the age of nine. The answer is for churches to recognize the need to come alongside parents to provide them biblical worldview training, parenting information, counseling, etc., that will equip them to help their children become the spiritually matuare Church of tomorrow. Profiles presented of churches who are effectively ministering to children and winning the war our enemy is waging against them\. Research orientated books on childhood spiritual development. "Raising ""Heaven Bound Kids in a Hell Bent World" by Eastman Curtis /" What Your Kids Need to Know About God and When by "John Trent / "Introducing the Spiritual Side of Parenting" by Ron Clarkson / "Bringing Up Boys" by James Dobson.

Many recent books have attempted to address the "crisis" in the mainline church. Anthony Robinson here makes a significant -- and in many ways unique -- contribution to this discussion by bringing his personal insights as a pastor to bear on the issue of renewing congregational life.

Writing from twenty-five years of experience in four congregations of differing size, location, and ethnic makeup, Robinson prescribes concrete changes in the practice of ministry that have been tried, tested, and lived out to great success. At the heart of his framework for church renewal is what he calls "cultural change." According to Robinson, technical or programmatic change is not sufficient to address the needs of the day. He argues for changing the very culture of mainline congregations, which involves recognizing and fostering their particular gifts and genius rather than trying to remake them into something they are not. His fruitful strategies for renewal touch every aspect of congregational life, from personal spiritual formation to church leadership.

Accomplished theologian J. Todd Billings recovers the biblical theme of union with Christ for today's church, making a fresh contribution to the theological discussion with important applications for theology and ministry. Drawing on Scripture and the thought of figures such as Augustine, Calvin, Bavinck, and Barth, Billings shows how a theology of union with Christ can change the way believers approach worship, justice, mission, and the Christian life. He illuminates how union with Christ can change the theological conversation about thorny topics such as total depravity and the mystery of God. Billings also provides a critique and alternative to the widely accepted paradigm of incarnational ministry and explores a gospel-centered approach to social justice. Throughout, he offers a unique and lively exploration of what is so amazing about being united to the living Christ.
