Worship Leader Handbook

For Worship Pastors, Leaders, Music Directors, Or Whatever Your Email Signature May Say.

I may not know you personally, but I believe in you. And I believe that God is not done with you. What you're doing matters. The late-night conversations with team members, the last-minute lyric or sermon notes edited at the 11th hour, the pastoral conversations with that volunteer whom you're calling up into greatness, and the weight on your shoulders to create an environment where the hope of Jesus is the focus. Just remember: It all matters, and it's worth it. You're worth it. We are all worth every moment of growth and love and struggle and challenge. I wrote this book as a collection, not as a chronological study-meaning that you can read it straight through or you can jump around. I've done my best, with a little help from my friends, to put this into a format that makes the most sense-five chapters, based on some of the most commonly asked questions I get when meeting with worship leaders and pastors.

Pastoral Succession That Works

Author: William Vanderbloemen,Warren Bird

Publisher: Baker Books

ISBN: 1441246576

Category: Religion

Page: 224

View: 5496

Every church and ministry goes through changes in leadership, and the issue is far bigger than the wave of pastors from the Baby Boomer generation who are moving toward retirement. When a pastor leaves a church, ministries are disrupted and members drift away. If the church is already struggling, it can find itself suddenly in very dire straits indeed. But the outcome doesn't have to be that way. What if when a pastor moved on, the church knew exactly what to do to find a suitable replacement because a plan and a process had been in place for some time? While there is no simple, one-size-fits-all solution to the puzzle of planning for a seamless pastoral succession, Next offers church leaders and pastors a guide to asking the right questions in order to plan for the future. Vanderbloemen, founder of a leading pastoral search firm, and Bird, an award-winning writer and researcher, share insider stories of succession successes and failures in dozens of churches, including some of the nation's most influential. Through case studies, interviews, and real-time research, the authors demystify successful pastoral succession and help readers prepare for an even brighter future for their ministries.

Pastor's Handbook

Author: John R. Bisagno,Rick Warren

Publisher: B&H Publishing Group

ISBN: 1433671492

Category: Religion

Page: 469

View: 3093

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.
