Just Released: Caring for God's People

I just got done publishing my third book, "Caring for God's People, Godly Wisdom for Shepherds."

In John 21:16 Jesus expresses something amazing to Peter about the importance of shepherding God's people. Jesus tells Peter that if he loves Him, he should shepherd, or care for, His people. "Jesus asked, Do you love Me"? Peter said to Him, "Yes, Lord; You know that I love You." Jesus said to him, "Shepherd My sheep."
Caring for God's people is close to the heart of God. Anyone who has ever attempted to do so knows it is sometimes a unenviable responsibility that is full of challenges. Certainly there can be great disappointments, but along with these come great rewards as we help people walk closer with Jesus.

God's word gives us specific insight into how He wants to care for His people. The church today has lost their hold on much of the wisdom found in God's Word concerning how to care for His people. This book explores various aspects of shepherding from God's Word and gives insight into caring for His people. It examines aspects of shepherding often not covered in contemporary leadership books.

The church is in the "people business." Beautiful buildings, marvelous meetings, and successful ministries are not substitute for the call of God to personally care for His sheep. This book will provide wisdom to help you be more effective in that mission.

This book is specifically designed for anyone currently, or in the future, giving care to God's people in any capacity. This includes, but is not limited to, any sort of mentor, small group leader or future leader, older spiritual brothers, sisters, moms or dads, leadership teams, or anyone else who simply cares for God's sheep.

Copies of "Caring for God's People" can be purchased by calling 620 231-6881 between the hours of 9:00am - 5:00pm.
