Information and training are readily available on church growth, methodology, organization, business processes, and efficient management. All of these are important for effective ministry. But in Igniting Passion in Your Church, author and pastor Steve Ayers addresses more critical matters for the church, such as: How can we help people in our church become fully devoted followers of Jesus? What does it mean for the church to be the bride of Christ? How can the church more clearly reflect God in the midst of a world that turns away from the divine? We must take people deeper. Deeper in their relationship with God. Deeper into the responsibility and blessing we enjoy as the church. Deeper into what it means to be the bride of Christ. Ayers challenges pastors and church leaders to ask themselves... Am I just flirting with the things of God, or am I truly and fully engaged with God? Have I taken seriously my covenant relationship with God? Have I determined that no matter what happens, I will live out God's mission and ministry? It's time to move the church beyond flitation, beyond a superficial relationship with God. The church must assume her role as the totally committed bride God designed her to be. Live out the life of Christ. Show the world the reality of Christ through your life. Author Steve Ayers will inspire and equip you to guide your church to a deeper, more passionate relationship with Jesus. Book jacket.
