Antioch, California (EastBayDaily) — Pastor Adebayo Asogba’s Practical Wisdom for Ministry reveals the unwritten and unspoken rules that ensure effective ministry and shares the “practical little nut and bolts that make ministry work effectively.” It updates the practice and preaching of the Word in these times, providing a valuable guide to for all church pastors, ministry associates and Christian workers.
Like any corporation or organization, churches need their own rules so they could smoothly, efficiently and effectively work for maximum production and productivity. The rules contained in Practical Wisdom for Ministry fulfill the book’s promise and more. Asogba provides the mechanics to all the church processes that he knows. His knowledge about Scriptural rules and their applications is encyclopedic, his wisdom is deep and his practicality sees the world correctly and makes him fashion his and his ministry’s “engagement” to the world with a sense of urgency and a measured eye that is prepared for many contingencies.
Asogba’s book specifically sheds light on the following sub-topics: 1.) Why one must honor your pastor and leaders; 2.) The law of the extra mile in the ministry; 3.) The power of loyalty; 4.) The danger of familiarity; 5.) The Nimrod spirit; 5.) How to catch the spirit and anointing of the ministry; 6.) How to make your ministry great; 7.) How to protect your ministry; 8.) How to be scripturally partial; 9.) How to stay ahead in the ministry. All these and more redound to a well-shaped program for today’s Christian ministry.
