The roles and responsibilities of the pastoral leader have changed significantly in recent years. A Pastoral Leader's Handbook provides a comprehensive survey of the pastoral leader's role in secondary school in the current climate and practical guidance on how to do the job. It includes information and guidance on: becoming effective in your role as a pastoral leader; how to get the best out of your tutor team; your role in managing pupil behaviour; working with a range of external agencies; using data to raise pupil achievement; handling difficult or hard to reach parents; the impact of current research findings on how you do the job. Case studies with real examples of both good and bad practice feature throughout, so that it is easy to relate to the experiences described. Questions throughout aid personal reflection or group discussion, and summaries of recent research, references and relevant web links provide springboards to further support where needed.

Pastoral Leadership

A Case Study, Including Reference to John Chrysostom

Author: Won Sang Lee

In ascending to heaven, Jesus Christ gave the church the Great Commission to expand the gospel to all nations. Despite this biblical commission, it is still an unfinished task. As leaders of local churches, pastors play a crucial part in this endeavor. Pastoral leadership principles have varied widely throughout history, yet it is interesting to discover the similarities between pastoral leadership principles practiced by John Chrysostom (AD 347-407) in Antioch and Constantinople, and Won Sang Lee (1937-) in Washington, DC. Despite ministering 1600 years apart, both pastors share the same core values: care for people, Christ-like character, biblical preaching, and world missions. This suggests that continued emphasis on these principles will play a significant role in fulfilling the Great Commission, independent of time and place.

Pastor's Handbook

Author: John R. Bisagno,Rick Warren

Publisher: B&H Publishing Group

ISBN: 1433671492

Category: Religion

Page: 469

Pastor's Handbook is a major expansion and revision of author John Bisagno's previous work, Letters to Timothy, which collected more than one hundred brief chapters of practical insight for handling real life pastoral issues- "things that might have fallen through the cracks in seminary"-based on the author's fifty years in ministry. A decade into his retirement, Bisagno stills mentors young pastors and recognizes new challenges in this profession known for its high dropout rate. With that in mind, Pastor's Handbook adds helpful entries on such issues as "The Seeker Friendly Church," "Solving Worship Wars," "Multiple Campuses," "New Media," and "Home Groups" as well as "Internet Pornography," "Biblical Inerrancy," "Calvinism," "The High Cost of Overnight Change," "Homosexuality," "Christianity and Islam," and more than a dozen other topics. He also refreshes several of the original chapters, factoring in new world issues and his survey of pastoral colleagues.

Silencing Satan: 13 Studies for Individuals and Groups

Handbook of Biblical Demonology

Author: Sharon Beekmann

Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers

ISBN: 1620327317

Category: Religion

Page: 78

The 13 lessons of this study guide help Christians develop an informed faith about supernatural evil and the gospel of Jesus Christ. Each lesson refers the reader to significant teachings in Silencing Satan: Handbook of Biblical Demonology. In the book, the authors teach about the nature and strategies of Satan and the demons, and their defeat through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. They advocate resisting the devil in his various guises--apparitions, voices, sensations, false doctrine, and immoral temptations--by reflexively turning to Jesus Christ and Scripture. The authors expose the half-truths and lies propagated by popular culture. They caution not to fill in gaps of understanding with extra-biblical sources. Does the study of Satan and the demons increase fear or give him too much attention? In fact, when presented from a biblical perspective, such knowledge can increase faith in Jesus Christ and enable Christians to effectively serve God and his church. Believers are challenged to live a radical life of faith, expressed through love and obedience to Christ. Seminarians, pastors, Bible teachers, Christian counselors, and lay leaders will find this study useful in individual and small group situations. A leaders' guide is available in the appendix.

Silencing Satan

Handbook of Biblical Demonology

Page: 258

View: 7208

Silencing Satan: A Handbook of Biblical Demonology is about the nature and strategies of Satan and the demons, and their defeat through the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The book is for Christians in ministry, whether seminarians, pastors, Bible teachers, Christian counselors, or lay leaders. It is for all who desire an informed faith relevant to supernatural evil and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Each chapter reflects extensive research and is succinctly written to enable believers to quickly grasp biblical truths that expose the lies and half-truths propagated by popular culture, within and outside the church. The authors teach that when face to face with supernatural evil in its various guises--apparitions, voices, sensations, false doctrine, and immoral temptations--believers resist the devil and reflexively turn to Jesus and Scripture. They fight by living a radical life of faith, expressed through love and obedience to Christ. As they do, God himself redeems the evil that Satan intends for his vainglory. God is building his church, and the gates of hades will not prevail against her (Matt 16:18)!
