Description : Being a pastor has its rewards and pleasures. But churches can be unsafe places. They are filled with broken, imperfect people. Many ministers of the gospel walk into a church naive about the potential hazards of their vocation. They are vulnerable to difficult people, unresolved conflict, incompatible visions, hidden agendas, mission drift, and sin--their own and that of others. Other pastors feel trapped in a ministry hurricane and don't know what to do. They feel like failures. They're thinking about leaving the ministry. They are looking for help and hope--not from an "expert" detached from the real world of ministry--but from someone who has suffered through church hurricanes and lived to share the story. Moreover, they need to know they are not alone. Surviving Ministry: How to Weather the Storms of Church Leadership includes the author's own story as well as true stories from other pastors who have been in the eye of the hurricane. Discouraged ministers looking for biblical, practical, gospel-centered advice for storm proofing their churches, homes, and hearts have found a friend. Surviving Ministry will equip them to stay resilient before, during, and after seasons of difficulty.

Description : I can do everything through him who gives me strength. (Philippians 4:13) Think it takes a professional actor to have a puppet ministry? Think again. This book gives you a step-by-step plan and tons of tips on using puppets to tell children all about Jesus while entertaining them at the same time! Puppets are a wonderful teaching tool. They can be whatever you want them to be. Puppets can take on different personalities, exhibit various character traits, teach different lessons. Kids are drawn to puppets, opening doors and establishing instant trust. Tell a conventional story to kids and watch as their eyes glaze over. Their short attention spans cause them to squirm and by the end they've missed out on the whole point of the story. Use puppets to tell the story and suddenly every eye is on the stage. Your audience stays with you all the way through and weeks later you're still be hearing about the memorable things the puppets said and did--just like kids act when they're talking about their favorite videos or TV shows. Everything you need to start a new puppet ministry or breath new life into an existing one is in this book. The author, Susan Parsons, relates many firsthand experiences she has had during her substantial career as a playwright and puppeteer. Learn about creative ways of making puppets from all sorts of unconventional things. Find out how to build a nifty, professional-looking stage out of PVC pipe--lightweight, easy to work with and affordable. Get pointers on writing and presenting skits, on staging and lighting them, on recruiting people to help you! Also, the book contains puppet patterns and ready-to-present skits which you can use for practice or incorporate right into your ministry! After reading this book you won't just surviveas a puppeteer--you'll thrive! Product Update It has come to our attention that page 59 of The Official Puppet Ministry Survival Guide contains an error in the instructions for constructing the PVC stage. This error will be corrected when the book is next reprinted. Our apologies for the mistake. The correct numbers and dimensions of pieces appear below. 2.5 ft (8 pieces) 2 ft. 9 in. (8 pieces) 3.5 ft. (2 pieces) 4.5 ft. (6 pieces) 6 ft. (2 pieces) Also, page 60 incorrectly lists a 7 ft., 3 in. piece of pipe.

Description : Youth Ministry Bi-Vocational Survival Guide is written specifically for the bi-vocational pastor and is chock-full of nuggets of gold. Authors Rick Flann and Chris Pope explain how to manage time well, prioritize effectively and lead in a way that empowers both the bi-vocational pastor and those they lead and care for on a daily basis. The Apostle Paul, a tent maker, was one of the greatest people ever to walk the face of this earth. He knew what his mission was and he was willing to do whatever it took to accomplish the task that God had set before him. Paul was bi-vocational. He proclaimed the Gospel, planted churches and pastored people, yet he never demanded his right to a paycheck from the church (1 Cor 9:12). Maybe you are a modern day tent maker, but unlike the Apostle Paul who always seemed to come out on top as a spiritual super star, you are sinking under the pressures of multiple jobs (both inside and outside of the church), school, family, or countless other obligations that you face each and every day. Take courage and know that you are not alone! The Youth Ministry Bi-Vocational Survival Guide was developed especially with you in mind, to enable you to succeed and still minster effectively to those you are leading.

Description : It’s more common in youth ministry than we want to admit—burnout and failure. Exhaustion, frustration, disappointment, and conflict bring many youth workers to a point where they either choose a new church, a new career, or someone makes that choice for them. After thirty years of youth ministry experience, Len Kageler wants to help youth workers avoid the pitfalls that are common to their calling, and give them the tools to not only survive, but also to thrive in youth ministry. Along with his own wisdom, Len offers insights gained from his 2006 survey of more than 300 burned out or fired youth workers who come from a variety of ministry contexts and denominations. If you’re new to youth ministry, or you’ve been at it for a while and feel like you may be on the verge of burnout, The Youth Ministry Survival Guide will help you: • deal with conflict and compromise • determine the causes of burnout (and how to avoid them!) • discover how your personality, and the personality of those you work with, affects the dynamics of your ministry experience • develop the best plan for working with senior pastors, church leadership, parents, and students, so you can… • do youth ministry in your 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond! Don’t let burnout force you out! Inside this book you’ll find steps you can take to help build fences against failure, and you’ll learn what it takes to survive and thrive in youth ministry.

Description : James P. Osterhaus offers pastors tangible and much-needed advice to help them at work and in their personal livesadvice that they do not often hear in seminary. More and more, men and women who minister find themselves depressed. Their marriages are often in trouble. Their families are negatively affected. Often, they have few if any close friends. Over the years, Osterhaus has coached and counseled hundreds of these ministers from various traditions on four continents. As he sat with ministers who have been nearly crushed by the burdens of ministry, he came to learn that the average training of ministers across the globe is woefully deficient in the very areas that allow ministers to avoid many of the pitfalls. This guide is a result of those countless conversations. Avoiding Pastoral Pitfalls is an attempt to fill some of the void left in the training of pastors. It offers down-to-earth, practical guidance in areas of ministry that are often neglected: understanding yourself (both strengths and weaknesses), what effective leadership looks like, the complicated organizational makeup of the church, how to deal with conflict effectively, how to make sense of your governing board, and how to both enter a new ministry and leave a ministry effectively.

Description : As increasing numbers of young women are discerning a call to ministry, entering seminary, graduating, and searching for the call to a parish or other ministry setting, they need to be aware of the realities that face them. The Girlfriends' Clergy Companion is about the nitty gritty of ministry for young female clergy—how to maintain a sense of personal style, what it's really like to be a solo pastor, how to date, what to do when they're ready to quit. The authors met in 2008 at a gathering of young women who serve as pastors. Since then, they have been meeting monthly to develop a 'young girlfriends network' and to support one another in their ministries. In their conversations, they heard one another talking about what they wished they had known before beginning ministry. Those yearnings gave rise to this book. The authors discuss the call process and the ministry situations in which young women most commonly find themselves serving as a solo pastor and as an associate. Additional chapters explore personal style, the single life, relationships, children, and self-care, as well as challenges pastors, particularly new pastors, often face. Each chapter ends with 'The Girlfriends' Checklist,' a summary of strategies to help young women be happier and more effective ministers.

Description : Church.......the place where many of us have found our greatest place of refuge and unfortunately for some, our greatest portal of pain. Although encountering pain is a normal part of the human experience, we seldom think of it as being a part of the spiritual experience as well. "Is Church Killing You," provides insight into the very passionate and personal journey of being hurt in church. In this book the author depicts what it is like to gasp for spiritual air as one is over taken in a sea of deception as they find out that the scale upon which many things were measured, was not a just weight. However, "Is Church Killing You?" reminds us that God never intended us to replace His deity with earthly representatives, but that each and every one of us is to be the "living church." The book exposes the deception used within some churches so it no longer has the ability to isolate or manipulate. Her candid disclosure of how the church whose design is to nurture, love and equip also has become the church that uses its "magnetic personality" to strip and violate the trust of its members. As you read this book it will cause you to assess and question the character of your own church. Through the Word of God, Pastor Idella McIntyre's bold stance, experience and wisdom expose the faulty practices of some of today's churches. The truth of God's Word yields understanding and strategies to overcome the emotional pain of church hurt! This book brings healing, restoration and the re-establishment of OUR power as the church! If you have ever been hurt in church, this book is a MUST read. If you have been one of the few who have not, it is still a must read as the biblical revelations in this book is pivotal to understanding our true responsibility in God's Kingdom.

Description : Nearly all pastors in their ministries at some time or another experience some level of congregational conflict. The subject of this book is to delve into and explore in detail the real world congregational conflicts experienced by real pastors. It provides the reader with insight into how a select group of pastors viewed the conflicts they themselves experienced, how they dealt with the many and varied nuances of such conflicts, and how the conflicts they experienced effected and changed their lives and ministries. This was accomplished by allowing pastors to write their stories regarding the experiences of conflict which occurred within their respective ministries. No criteria for inclusion in this book were imposed other than the facts that serious and sometimes extreme congregational conflict occurred in the lives and ministries of the pastors and the congregations they presently serve or had once served. Freedom to write their accounts in the manner they chose was granted. A series of prompting or thought-provoking statements provided each pastor a framework for their story. Once the stories were received, they were evaluated from a confessionally Lutheran theological perspective. The theological issues revealed within these conflict stories largely focused on the doctrine of the Office of the Holy Ministry, including the Divine Call, the doctrine of the Office of the Keys, including Confession and Absolution, and the general doctrinal concept of Mission as it relates to the church's overall evangelistic mission ministry as given to the Church by our Lord Jesus Christ in the words of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). The ultimate goal of this work was to provide for the church a tool for congregations and pastors to use in the prevention of extreme congregational conflict, and should such conflicts arise, to provide a means for pastors and congregations to survive within the atmosphere of extreme congregational conflict. The goal was achieved by the compilation of these pastoral stories of conflict into a study guide which will help many pastors and congregations to discuss such issues of conflict in a non-threatening preventive environment of honest and open study at the congregational level.

Description : "An extremely useful and much needed survey. Over eleven chapters, authors from eight countries cover the complex history of migration from the perspective of Central and Eastern Europe between 1945 and 1993. Following in the footsteps of Klaus Bade’s Encyclopedia of European Migrations, the authors make extensive use of sources in national languages, while providing an extensive overview of population movements in the region between the Baltic, Black, and Adriatic Seas. The individual chapters shed light on phenomena overlooked in other volumes, including individual state reactions to various migratory phenomenon, and the political, economic, and ideological consequences of human movement. The chapters of this volume are uniform not only in their informative nature, but also in suggesting new pathways for in-depth research." Adam Walaszek, Jagiellonian University, Kraków, Poland "Eastern Europe is an emblematic space of mobility and its Cold War history cannot be told without considering migration from and into the countries of the region. This volume comes at a timely moment and provides a uniquely comprehensive account, full with useful information for further research. It will be a must-read both for migration studies scholars and for area specialists." Ulf Brunnbauer, Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies, Regensburg, Germany "The Handbook is a gift to students of migration on three counts. It gathers the expertise of scholars fluent in the languages – and familiar with the archives – of Eastern and Central Europe. Thus it brings the multi-layered and complex histories of movement beyond the flat descriptor of "Soviet bloc" or Eastern European migrations. The Handbook is both rich and lucid, presenting in-depth materials on the European twentieth-century, on one hand, and organizing each chapter in a similar way, offering the reader transparently comparable histories. From Estonia south to Albania, and from the USSR west to the GDR, each chapter elucidates a complex migration history distinguished by national politics, ethnic composition, and economics – moving from the cataclysmic impacts of World War II to the international migrations and politics of Cold War movement, as well as the politics of Cold War emigrants themselves. Each chapter ends with an epilogue on post-1989 international migrations and a valuable addendum on published and archival sources. Finally, the Handbook models the kind of high quality work produced by international scholarly cooperation at its best."
