In a world of big, bigger, and biggest it can be difficult for pastors of small churches to keep from getting discouraged. In the Shadow of the Steeple offers pastors encouragement and hope, reminding them of their ultimate purpose - to share Christ's love with the world. Gene Williams gives practical advice and uplifting insight for smaller church pastors, reminding them of the unique opportunities and advantages they have to reach the people who would never feel comfortable in a mega-church.'It is out of an understanding heart and long experience that [Gene Williams] writes In the Shadow of the Steeple. This is a book that is much needed. ...It will be greatly appreciated by all of those who, having spent their days encouraging others, need to sit down at the end of the day and derive a little encouragement for themselves. This book will do it.'-Dr. Stuart Briscoe, Minister and Author'Finally...a serious book that R-E-A-L-L-Y affirms the smaller church pastor while also affirming the validity of mega-churches as being real churches too. This book merits national praise and is required reading for both smaller churches and mega-church pastors. Every pastor knows other pastors who need this book now.-John Vaughan, Founder and PresidentChurch Growth Today

With may be the most important word in the Christian faith.

In the Trinity, as Samuel Wells points out, we see the eternal persons of the Godhead being with each other. In the Gospels we see Jesus being with the people he encounters, mediating God's grace to them with his own incarnational presence. Those in ministry are likewise called to the task of being with--with God, with the church, and with the created world and those who dwell in it.

In Incarnational Ministry Wells elaborates on the concept of being with in eight dimensions: presence, attention, mystery, delight, participation, partnership, enjoyment, and glory. His vivid narratives and wise reflections will challenge readers to deeper discipleship and more vital ministry as they explore what it means to be with the troubled, the hurt, the afflicted, the challenged, the dying--and all who are embraced by the church's incarnational ministry.

A congregational community is an ideal place to share and strengthen faith, form lasting relationships, and develop special gifts and talents. Too often, though, people with developmental and other disabilities lack the opportunities and supports to fully participate in the life of their faith community. Thatâ (TM)s why families and service providers need to read this groundbreaking guidebook--and share a copy with congregations that want to become places of welcome and belonging for people with disabilities.

Bringing his practical ideas to life with anecdotes, quotes, and examples of successful strategies, Erik Carter helps readers

  • reflect on how welcoming their congregation is--and could be--for people with disabilities and their families
  • articulate and pursue a bold vision of inclusion throughout their congregation, community, city, or state
  • take steps to break down attitudinal, architectural, programmatic, and other barriers to inclusion
  • design appropriate, inclusive religious education programs for children, youth, and adults

  • learn how service providers can actively support the spiritual preferences, strengths, and needs of people with disabilities
  • To make inclusion work in any faith community, this how-to book gives readers workable strategies and photocopiable forms for identifying â oeindicators of welcome, ⠝ encouraging community outreach, and gathering important information about the support needs of people with disabilities and their families.

    The JESUS Model is a unique guide to church planting based upon the ways and teachings of Jesus. It is written for those who want both a biblical foundation and practical help in starting new churches. The JESUS Model is also a training manual for disciples at four levels: discipling, coaching, leading a ministry area and leading a church plant. The author's radical vision is for this sort of training to be a constantly self-replicating cycle in churches. Each member is discipling and being discipled to be most effective, according to his or her gifts, in the church's task of multiplication by planting new churches. The goal of all training is 'doing' - disciples demonstrate that they have learnt by 'putting it into practice'. Dietrich shows that this kind of discipleship is the fruit of a real and intimate relationship with Jesus, and that a trusting, mutually accountable small group helps us to maintain that relationship. He also shares from his own life how he has practised the principles that he encourages others to follow. Dietrich Schindler holds a DMin from Fuller Seminary in the USA. Born and raised in the US by German immigrant parents, he subsequently returned to Germany, where he has since planted and pastored five new churches. Since 2008 he heads up the Church Planting department of the Evangelical Free Church of Germany. He has taught church planting at four seminaries in Germany, and has been invited to speak about church planting at conferences in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Norway, Sweden and the Netherlands. This book first appeared in German in 2010 under the title Das Jesus-Modell: Gemenden gründen wie Jesus. Dietrich is married to Jan Carla and they have three grown-up children.

    Clergy burnout still abounds. Now comes an antidote: a collection of reflections centering on a lost note today--joy in ministry. The Joy of Ministry contains eight theological reflections on ministry to help pastors recognize their identities and the joy in the midst of their ministry of sharing the gospel. Rooted in the writings of Karl Barth and Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Thomas Currie III reminds readers of the basis for the church's ministry, namely, what God has done in Jesus Christ, and the ways in which the gospel joy is expressed in the ministry of the church.
