The Pastor's Handbook (NIV) is intended to meet the continuing need of the Christian minister for guidance and forms as he does the work of the ministry. It seeks to offer options to suit the tastes of the pastor and congregation within the parameters of quality, beauty and dignity. To this end, numerous changes, both large and small, have been made—more selected Scriptures, new alternatives for special occasions, some significant additions and changes. At the same time, every effort has been made to keep the book concise and compact to maximize its usefulness. The formulas should be sufficient for the ordinary needs of the minister. They may be modified or supplemented by materials from the pastor's private collection or his own preparation. Some who stress liberty in prayer and preaching dislike set forms, preferring spontaneity and a free style as they worship. If the spiritual vitality of a church is maintained there need be no fear that these forms will become lifeless rituals. The use of forms should never become merely formal. And if the use of forms adds beauty and dignity to the atmosphere of sacredness, who can object? May the blessing of God attend all who glean from this manual, enabling it them to know what to say and how to say it. This is made also for allowing them to know what to do and how to do it especially as the occasion requires. Gratitude is expressed to many pastors and contributors for this volume. Includes the: worship service, baptism, communion, funerals, anointing services, healing services, membership, installation, baby and child dedication, consecration services, ceremonies for buildings and visitation.

Pastor's Handbook is a major expansion and revision of author John Bisagno's previous work, Letters to Timothy, which collected more than one hundred brief chapters of practical insight for handling real life pastoral issues- "things that might have fallen through the cracks in seminary"-based on the author's fifty years in ministry. A decade into his retirement, Bisagno stills mentors young pastors and recognizes new challenges in this profession known for its high dropout rate. With that in mind, Pastor's Handbook adds helpful entries on such issues as "The Seeker Friendly Church," "Solving Worship Wars," "Multiple Campuses," "New Media," and "Home Groups" as well as "Internet Pornography," "Biblical Inerrancy," "Calvinism," "The High Cost of Overnight Change," "Homosexuality," "Christianity and Islam," and more than a dozen other topics. He also refreshes several of the original chapters, factoring in new world issues and his survey of pastoral colleagues.

This handbook makes a great gift for a newly ordained Minister of the Gospel or Seminary Graduate! This handbook has been designed to assist the Pastor or Minister of the Gospel in performing Marriage Ceremonies. The easy "step-by-step" format is simple to follow and has spaces provided to insert the names of the Bride and Groom. The three main ceremonies are included in this handbook: 1. The Traditional Wedding Ceremony which incorporates scripture reading and charges to the bride, the groom, the witnesses in the wedding party and also the audience. The author has been using this system extensively for over 20 years and has never failed to get several compliments on the ceremony. 2. The Civil Ceremony. This is a short, easy and quick wedding ceremony. It is often performed at City Hall, but be used anywhere. The author has even used in a local jail where an inmate and his fiance were married! It "mentions" God, but not to the extent of the other two types of ceremonies. 3. The "Episcopalian" Ceremony. This is a longer ceremony (very rarely used by the author) and incorporates the taking of communion as well as all the other elements of the Traditional Ceremony. This handbook is a compilation of many different marriage manuals the author has used for over 20 years of performing marriage ceremonies. Taking "the best" sections from various manuals and combining them into one, "easy to use" handbook and written in a "Step-by-Step" format allows the user to immediately take this Handbook and perform marriage ceremonies like they have been doing it for years!

The church is not a business, and yet every pastor and parish staff faces increasingly complex questions about income, expenditures, employer/employee relationships, law, and a host of related management issues. The better a parish manages these questions, the better its ability to carry out the parish's primary mission of leading people to Christ and being a sign of the kingdom. The Parish Management Handbook is a clear, practical guide for pastors, parish administrators, pastoral staff members, finance committees, and pastoral councils. In down-to-earth language and real-life examples, it covers many of the most important management questions in parishes today. The nine contributors to The Parish Management Handbook are among the best and most experienced leaders in parish management today. Together they offer indispensable guidance and help for all who work in parishes.

No function of the pastor is as visible and stress inducing as preaching. Being a good preacher requires learning the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical skills needed to effectively share God's word with a congregation. It demands a commitment to the craft of preaching. But few pastors feel adequately prepared for this high-stakes responsibility when they begin their ministries. Mary Hulst knows what it takes to preach well. Forged by her experiences as a pastor, preaching professor and college chaplain, she recognizes the challenges of the pulpit. In this uniquely practical book, Hulst provides foundational concepts and tips that all pastors can use, whether they are ministry newcomers or seasoned professionals. Preaching can bring both you and your congregation great joy and satisfaction, week after week. And A Little Handbook for Preachers can help you deliver a better sermon by Sunday.

12th Annual Outreach Resource of the Year (Counseling) What is the church's role in suicide prevention? While we tend to view the work of suicide prevention as the task of professional therapists and doctors, the church can also play a vital role. Studies show that religious faith is an important factor reducing the risk of suicide. Yet many pastors, chaplains and pastoral counselors feel overwhelmed and unprepared to prevent suicides. In this practical handbook, psychologist Karen Mason equips ministry professionals to work with suicidal individuals. Integrating theology and psychology, she shows how pastoral caregivers can be agents of hope, teaching the significance of life, monitoring those at risk and intervening when they need help. Because church leaders are often present in people's lives in seasons of trouble and times of crisis, they can provide comfort in the midst of suffering and offer guidance for the future. When our church members struggle in the darkness, the darkness need not overcome them. Discover how you and your church can be proactive in caring for those at risk of self-harm.
