About "Ministry Nuts and Bolts"
Veteran church planter, pastor, and seminary professor Aubrey Malphurs identifies four foundational ministry concepts: values, mission, vision, and strategy. He shows the pastor, ministry leader, or leadership team how to apply and implement these vital concepts. Ministry Nuts and Bolts provides a step-by-step guide for developing the basics needed to lead a vital ministry.Many pastors find that they have been equipped by seminary for their teaching ministry, but their enthusiasm for ministry is sapped by a sense of confusion about other core aspects of building a minsitry. With Malphur's guidance, pastors will find the tools to build a shared core and mission values--keys to a unified church. And churches with vision and strategy will be able to minister to the surrounding culture.

This very important and helpful book by Aubrey Malphurs shows pastors and church leaders how they can lead and shepherd their local churches by focusing on and developing four foundational ministry concepts - values, mission, vision and strategy. Values clarify what the local church cherishes. Mission articulates why it exists. Vision paints a picture of what the church would like to bebecome. Strategy enables the church to pursue its mission and realize its vision based on the values it cherishes. This book also contains case studies of churches which have put these ministry concepts into practice. This book ought to be prescribed for every seminary class on pastoral theology and also read and discussed by the leadership team of every local church. Highly recommended!
