Reviews - What do customers think about Selected to Serve: A Guide for Church Officers?
Valuable for church officer training Jul 29, 2006
We've been using this book for several years in the Presbyterian Church (USA) congregation where I'm pastor, to rave reviews from the elders- and deacons-elect. Johnson has gathered between two covers most of what Presbyterian church officers need to know about how to do their jobs. He demsytifies the Book of Order, and makes it accessible to first-time users.
