In this comprehensive training manual, Leroy Howe presents a program that will help you and other church leaders empower and equip congregations in developing pastoral care ministries. A Pastor in Every Pew will help you develop the skills you need to render effective Christian care in a variety of situations while establishing person-to-person caregiving that focuses on building trust, effective listening, dealing with feelings, prayer, and the uses of Scripture. The author shows how ministering to others in the name of Jesus Christ can become a source of spiritual renewal for every Christian—a renewal that can transform both individuals and the life of congregations. Use of this book with groups can eliminate the need for expensive and time-consuming training programs. Judson Press.
