So you like the idea of being 'mission' or 'evangelism' oriented, rather than being stuck in 'maintenance mode'? But what are you going to do about it? Where do you start? How do you take your current ministry (whether in a church, a fellowship or a Bible study) and transform it into an outward-looking, well-organized evangelistic power-house?
Peter Bolt's simple but profound little book, Mission Minded, won't do the hard work for you. But it will show you how to make your hard work count. It will not only help you understand the basic principles that should shape any Christian ministry, but how to plan your ministry to reflect these principles.
This new version of Mission Minded will ensure that it continues to be an invaluable tool for 'ministers' of all shapes and sizes: from the pastor of a busy church to the leader of a home Bible study group. In particular it is helpful for:
* ministry one-to-one
* churches setting up new ministries
* churches analysing their old ministries
* anyone with some leadership role in a structured ministry situation such as a Sunday School Class, a youth group or an Adult Bible Study
* a pastor or church committee who has oversight of all the ministries in a church
A tool for planning your ministry around Christ's mission
