This week’s Free Stuff Fridays is sponsored by Moody who also sponsored this week’s sponsored post. They are giving away a leadership pack of books this week. There will be 5 winners and each of them will receive the following 4 titles:
- Old Paths, New Power: Awakening Your Church Through Prayer and the Ministry of the Word by Daniel Henderson. From a recovering “leadershipaholic”: our best model is the first one. With all our sleek ministry models, it’s a wonder our churches are declining—until we read Acts 6:4, “But we will give ourselves continually to prayer and the ministry of the word.” After a long, sometimes trying ministry journey, Daniel Henderson was relieved to discover what the apostles knew from the start: The main thing must stay the main thing. It worked in their pagan times, and it will in ours. Old Paths, New Power: Reviving Our Churches through Prayer and the Ministry of the Word calls us back to the tried-and-true: pray and proclaim the word. Our churches don’t need fresh models and fancy things; they need the Holy Spirit, and He rains down when we pray and proclaim the word. Read Old Paths, New Power and follow God’s master plan.
- Tozer for the Christian Leader by A.W. Tozer and Ron Eggart. “I fear that we shall never see another Tozer. Men like him are not college-bred but Spirit-taught.” (Rev. Leonard Ravenhill) Great leaders are rare. Those who pray fervently, worship fully, and walk in integrity—who see God big and depend on Him humbly—are those trained in the way of power. Such was the case for A. W. Tozer, and Tozer for the Christian Leader shows you what made him exceptional. These reflections, grouped monthly by theme—like prayer, the personal life, and worship—are ideal for any Christian leader. Absorb Tozer’s wisdom. Be marked by his conviction. Let his keen eye for spiritual things cut through pretense and show you truth. Read Tozer for the Christian Leader and discover the beating heart of uncommonly great and godly leadership.
- After 50 Years of Ministry: 7 Things I’d Do the Same and 7 Things I’d Do Differently by Bob Russell. When Bob Russell became the pastor of Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, it was just 120 people meeting in a basement. When he retired forty years later, it was nearing 20,000. Though his ministry was clearly successful, he’d be the first to tell you it wasn’t perfect. In After 50 Years of Ministry, Bob reflects on the best of what he’s learned (sometimes the hard way) about ministry and leadership. Marked with Bob’s humor and warmth—and packed with great stories and illustrations—After 50 Years of Ministry is sage advice from a man who practiced faith, put his hand to the plow, and saw God work. If you are in leadership of any kind, don’t miss this chance to learn from one of the best.
