Pastors are expected to wear many hats: teachers, counselors, executive officers, event planners, and more. But what is a pastor’s primary duty? And how can his congregation help support him in that role? That’s our subject on Truth For Life with Alistair Begg!
Written by Jonathan Leeman, editorial director for the reputable ministry 9Marks, Word- Centered Church offers a thorough treatment of one of God's greatest concerns: growing His people and growing His church. As simple as the concept may seem, it's one that many churches miss, and to their own detriment. Because when churches center everything they do on God's Word—when the pulpit ministry gives direction to every aspect of the church's life— growth happens God's way. God's Word is what creates the church, and it's what sustains it, too. Theological and practical, Word-Centered Church focuses on how the church hears, responds to, discusses, implements, and is transformed by Scripture. It's not about high- octane production, superstar personalities, or postmodern entreaties, but content that is really old, really good, and really powerful. Word-Centered Church is the ministry-model book that churches need, because it advances the model God designed. For anyone who wants to grow or help others grow, Word-Centered Church is indispensable.
