Practically every profession
requires equipment. Doctors require both training and instruments, soldiers
need weapons, plumbers need tools. The same is true of our personal lives.
Paul recognized this when he
described his role as "equipping the saints” (Eph. 4:11-16). Christian
leadership does not happen by accident. It must be fostered, developed, molded.
Christians need the tools with which to live their lives; churches need their tools to do the job of
reaching the world for Christ.
This book covers essential topics
as stewardship, commitment, developing leadership, and other needed topics for
those who desire to build and equip the church.
