Church of the New Testament Sep 19, 2008
This book is an excellent reference tool for church ministries that are trying to change the paradym of their operations from a traditional doctrinal church to a church that is transitioning into the apostolic move of God. All of the references are scriptural and the examples of how ministry leadership offices, ordinations, consecrations and selection of leadership are clear and understandable. Dr. Ramona Joseph Charlotte, NC

A must read for new Ministers and Pastors Aug 23, 2005
Simply stated this book tells it like it is. Using only the Word of God as its support. If you do not believe something you can look it up in your very own Bible. More people should be using this book as a requirement for church officers and workers. I have told everyone I know they need to read this since our Bishop introduced this to us in our Ministry training.
An excellent resource Jan 22, 2004
This book contains more Biblical and practical explanation on the New Tetsament style of doing church than any other book. I was assigned to teach a Bible College course on the 5 Fold Ministry and there is simply not a good textbook anywhere. Then I read this book and each of the Five Fold Ministries have a chapter of their own.
Its a type of book that while you are reading it you just simply know and sense that it is right and should be applied. It actually will leave you excited about doing church and then you wake up to the reality that may lead you to frustration because your churrch is not anything like this and how difficult, if not impossible, it would be to make these changes. Even though yu know this is a much more Biblical way.
This book at the same time does cover areas that can be utilized immediately in your church without any great stress. He covers in detail the offices and responsibilities of the Elder and the Deacons. Elders to rule; Deacons to serve.
