What is ministry? Ministry is casting crowns at the feet of the Worthy One. It is the overflow of your relationship with Jesus. It is washing feet, loving people, making disciples, and more.
In dozens of brief yet powerful chapters, Ministry Is . . . presents an actionable Bible-based guide to serving God in the local church. The insights here from authors Dave Earley and Ben Gutierrez are perfect for those considering church ministry as a vocation and applicable to anyone desiring to serve intentionally through the church.
With every entry, they stay laser focused on making the reader "a spiritual change agent, a difference maker, and impact player for Jesus Christ."
"This book is like a pastoral pep talk. It'll challenge the way you think and lead."
Mark Batterson, author, In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day
"I can't think of two young men more qualified to write a best-selling book on the topic How to Serve Jesus with Passion and Confidence."
Elmer L. Towns, vice president, Liberty University
"The authors are in 'Game On!' mode in every chapter. They know that a great church isnÕt about having great big talent, but leaders whom have great big servant hearts."
John Hull, president/CEO, EQUIP
