""What do I do now?"" Whether you're a lay minister, pastor, or missionary, this is probably a question you've often asked yourself. Along with the joy of helping people in Christian ministry comes the complexity of all the issues and situations that arise. This book offers biblical perspectives and insights into twenty of the most common, and puzzling, questions that occur in Christian ministry today. Questions like . . . how can I help people with problems? How can I be a great small-group leader? Can we actually hurt people by trying to minister to them? How do I answer the tough questions non-Christians--and Christians--ask? Why doesn't God seem to help us more in our ministries? What does success in ministry look like? The discussions of these and other questions will hopefully encourage us to view every situation we face as an opportunity to help people connect with God.
