Passionate Church : Ignite Your Church and Change the World (Paperback) (Mike Slaughter)
About this item
It’s good to talk about ministry. It’s better to do it, and do it passionately.
In 2008, the United Methodist Church lifted up “Four Areas of Focus” for ministry, and churches have responded. But at Ginghamsburg Church, in the rust-belt town of Tipp City, Ohio, the church has been doing exciting and effective ministry in those four areas for 35 years and more.
- Engaging in Ministry with the Poor
- Improving Global Health
- Developing Principled Christian Leaders
- Creating New and Renewed Congregations
Mike Slaughter, popular author and lead pastor at Ginghamsburg, is in his fourth decade as the church’s chief dreamer. In this book Slaughter shares real-life examples of work in the four ministry areas. He tells the story of how a struggling church found its identity through mission and action, and how any church doing so can become the hands and feet of Christ.
