Engaging the Story of God: Frameworks for Lay Leadership

Author, Editor, Compiler, etc.: 
Rob Fringer

Engaging the Story of God—The Bible is of utmost importance to the Christian faith and should be a source of revelation, wisdom, instruction, and connection to God. Nevertheless, it continues to be misunderstood, misinterpreted, and misappropriated. Therefore, it is vital that we understand what we believe about the Bible as Christians and as Wesleyans.

Embodying a Theology of Ministry and Leadership: Frameworks for Lay Leadership

Author, Editor, Compiler, etc.: 
Bruce G. Allder

This book seeks to bring together a person’s spiritual vitality in Christ with practical expressions of service, care, and deepening relationships with others. It provides practical steps on how to listen well to God’s specific call, develop the art of theological reflection, and apply various leadership perspectives to different contexts. Throughout, Scripture is used to provide a scaffold on which to build ministry and leadership principles that can bring coherence and effectiveness to complex and often confusing situations.

Expressing a Nazarene Identity: Frameworks for Lay Leadership

Author, Editor, Compiler, etc.: 
Floyd T. Cunningham

This book focuses on how the Church of the Nazarene has perceived its mission and purpose in the world from beginning days to the present. The book describes the particular reason-to-be of the church and its distinctive character, particularly in relation to its organisational structure, educational philosophy, and missions. It explains some of the ways in which the church has developed its theology from John Wesley, Methodism, and the holiness movement to the twentieth and twenty-first century, and how the church has expanded its ministry of compassion to the world.

Entering the Mission of God: Frameworks for Lay Leadership

Author, Editor, Compiler, etc.: 
Richard Giesken

Our world seems to be getting smaller every day. The global movement of people is at unprecedented levels. While many perceive these movements as a threat, Jesus encourages us to see a ripe harvest field at our doorstep. Those who are open to the call of God and equipped for cross-cultural engagement stand ready to cross the street to make disciples in the name of Jesus. This book explores culture, worldview, and intercultural communication from theological and practical perspectives.
