Much of what is written about church planting aims at methodology and strategy for facing such challenges, but specific strategies do not apply to every context. What lies deeper, at the heart ofevery church plant? The most critical human component of every church plant is the planter. Darrin Patrick, vice president of the Acts 29 Church Planting Network, looks at what Scripture teaches about this man’s character, his teaching, and the aim of his church. Offering guidance and wisdom from years of experience, Patrick reminds us that ultimately no church will succeed apart from a man with a message who leads a church on a mission. This book is for every Christian leader. Church Planter is an essential resource for those considering planting a church or already in such a plant, and maybe even more important for those leading an established church. It has wide-ranging application for elders and leadership teams seeking to better understand how the gospel must take root in their church. Avoiding an over-emphasis on particular models or methods, Patrick lays out biblical principles and sound wisdom as he urges the church to return to biblical criteria for determining the man, the message, and the mission God uses to build his church.

It is absolutely essential that a church perceive itself as an institution for the glory of God, and to do that, claims John MacArthur, the local church must adhere unfalteringly to biblical leadership principles. Christ never intended church leadership to be earned by seniority, purchased with money, or inherited through family ties. He never compared church leaders to governing monarchs, but rather to humble shepherds; not to slick celebrities, but to laboring servants. Drawing from some of the best-received material on church leadership, this updated edition guides the church with crucial, effective lessons in leadership. This book is valuable not only for pastors and elders, but for anyone else who wants the church to be what God intended it to be.

In its original context, I Timothy chapter 3 is directed towards overseers (or elders) and deacons in the church. This chapter includes a very detailed list of the requirements and character traits that should be present in those who seek to serve in God's house. As believers and followers of Jesus Christ, each one of us should always strive to live a life that is "Above Reproach," because it is Jesus Christ that we are representing. Therefore, this passage of scripture becomes a great measuring tool for all believers to monitor the spiritual growth in their lives. I believe this was the intent of Paul's instructions: ."I am writing you these instructions so that, if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God's household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth." I Timothy 3:14-15 This study of I Timothy 3 will help you examine each one of these attributes more deeply and challenge you to apply them to your own lives as you strive to be like Christ.

Dark-haired Victorian beauty Cassandra Seton will finally see her fiancé, Miles Markwick, after a separation of nine years. Nine years that have made her an object of pity. Marrying him now would save her further social humiliation, but it may cost her even more. Jonathan Vane, Viscount Thaxton, has retreated from society, earning him the nickname "the Ghost." He's desperate to hide his father's increasing madness and fearful that he too will eventually succumb to the same illness. While attending the Spencers' party in the country, both Jonathan and Cassie are awakened by unearthly wailing; instead of a ghost, they find each other--and fall into a passionate embrace. Guilt-stricken and searching for answers, they agree to a séance, but the medium's words only deepen the mystery. As the secrets of the past are revealed, Jonathan and Cassie band together to discover what's really haunting Spencer House--and how to free each other from the specters looming over their own fates.

Maturity is not based on age but on attitude, life experiences, and expectations. Because of this there are adults who have no maturity; quite often they are the athletes and the celebrities of our society. Society is stunned by their pouting and random acts of immaturity, but it is only because they have not had the opportunity to mature in the face of living catered lives. And unless they are forced to do so, they will not mature. Society has given them this option; God does not give Christian men and women this same option. God’s mandate to Christian men and women is to lead lives that are in constant pursuit of spiritual maturity.
