Category: Author/Speaker:


This book offers insights into the lives of healthy congregations and their pastors as it explores the difficult situations that many pastors face in ministering to congregations that do not respect the spiritual authority that has been biblically instituted in the Church. Interwoven throughout the book is a five-week Bible study, which can be used personally or in a small group setting, that examines the lives of spiritual leaders from throughout the Old and New Testaments, with contemporary application to help equip lay persons today in the nurture, support, and care of their pastoral leaders. When the Church learns to embrace the biblical principles of living in the authority of God’s love, then the power and presence of God will be manifested, not only in the Church, but in the world.
