    Drawing insights from his study of the book of Acts, Buchanan challenges churches to “turn the world upside-down”—to be both good news and bad news, an aroma and a stench – a disruptive force to whoever or whatever opposes the Kingdom of God, and a healing and liberating power to those who seek it.

    Organic Outreach for Churches: Audio Lectures

    Infusing Evangelistic Passion into Your Local Congregation

    The Zondervan Biblical and Theological Lectures series provides a unique audio learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook's direct narration of a book's text, Organic Outreach for Churches: Audio Lectures includes high quality live-recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources. Nearly all churches and ministries consider themselves dedicated to evangelism, and many explicitly include outreach in their mission statements. But few are actually bearing the fruit. Kevin Harney diagnoses this problem and offers guidance for multiplying the outreach and impact of churches. The Organic Outreach for Churches: Audio Lectures provides direction for local congregations to weave evangelism into the fabric of the church. Commitment to the Great Commission is not simply about sending money and praying for missions or holding occasional events to reach out (although these things are good). Organic outreach happens when evangelistic vision and action become the domain of every ministry and the commitment of every person in the congregation. This will not happen accidentally. There is huge spiritual and practical resistance to such changes. The only way evangelism will become an organic part of a church is when every leader and each member is gripped by proclaiming the gospel. This audio lectures series provides a roadmap for pastors and leaders who wish to infuse evangelistic passion into every aspect of their church's life.

    Do you know unchurched Harry and Mary? He or she could be the neighbor who is perfectly happy without God, the coworker who scoffs at Christianity, the supervisor who only uses Jesus' name as a profanity, or the family member who doesn't understand the importance of religion. Lee Strobel's Inside the Mind of Unchurched Harry and Mary isn't a book of theories, but rather a plan of action to help Christians relate the message of God to the skeptics they live and work with. Strobel uses compelling personal anecdotes, humor, Biblical illustrations, and the latest research to help Christians better understand unbelievers and their motivations.

    Modern worship leaders are restless. They have inherited a model of leadership that equates leading worship with being a rock star. But leading worship is more than a performance, it's about shaping souls and making disciples. Every worship leader is really a pastor. The Worship Pastor is a practical and biblical introduction to this essential pastoral role. Filled with engaging, illustrative stories it is organized to address questions of theory and practice, striving to balance conversational accessibility with informed instruction. - Part One presents a series of evocative 'vignettes'--intriguing and descriptive titles and metaphors of who a Worship Pastor is and what he or she does. It shows the Worship Pastor as Church-Lover, Disciple Maker, Corporate Mystic, and Doxological Philosopher. - Part Two covers specific roles related to ministry within the worship service itself--the Worship Pastor as Theological Dietician, Caregiver, Mortician, Emotional Shepherd, War General, Prophetic Guardian, Missional Historian, and Liturgical Architect. - Part Three looks at ministry beyond the worship service--the Worship Pastor as Visionary Teacher, Evangelist, Artist Chaplain, and Team Leader. While some worship leaders are eager to embrace their pastoral role, many are lost and confused or lack the resources of time or money to figure out what this role looks like. Pastor Zac Hicks gives us a clear guide to leading worship, one that takes the pastoral call seriously. Accompanying figures are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

    "For the first time in modern history, women are making their way into strategic positions of influence and leadership within the church, public, corporate, charity and voluntary sectors, in unprecedented numbers. Women are called by God to flourish in these arenas. However, there are significant external and internal issues that hinder women in leadership in unique ways. But if you think this book is only for women, you are gravely mistaken. While women's entry onto the leadership arena may have been the catalyst to uncover deep-seated issues in leadership culture, the challenges addressed here are not unique to women in leadership alone. In 7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership, Kate Coleman considers what lies at the root of the many challenges facing today's leaders--women and men--and proposes ways of dealing with them. Effective leadership starts with you and, based on her 35 years of leadership experience, Kate explains how you can: - Overcome limiting self-perceptions - Establish boundaries - Develop a tailor-made personal vision - Cultivate a healthy work/life rhythm - Stop being a people-pleaser - Learn to confront not collude - Be intentional with your inner circle Written for every leader from any sector, this proven and practical book will enable you to identify and overcome self-defeating patterns of behavior, in ways that will radically transform your leadership. Leadership exercises are available in the audiobook companion PDF download."
