Now available! A new book by Taylor Overbey, So You Want to be a Minister.
What is this book about?
God has been raising up an ever growing number of people that are hungry. They are hungry to know their Heavenly Father in a deeper way. They are hungry to serve Him--at work, in pulpits, in mission fields, and in every endeavor in which they are involved.
These are people who are not content to sit by and wait for someone else to do something. No. They are men and women, young people and adults, who want to get into the fray themselves and run the race.
Are you one of these people?
If you are, then this is a book for you.
You don't have to be a member of an exclusive club to serve God. I believe that what has been stirring in your heart is God working in you, and that is your true qualification. Without that, no amount of education or training will benefit you.
Being a true minister is the most challenging, rewarding, dangerous, and exciting adventure anyone has ever undertaken. Dangerous? Adventure? I suspect that jars some of you. To begin you will need to set aside any ideas you have had of what a minister is. What I want to do is call something out of you. I want to awaken a sleeping giant, stir a caged lion, or restore a wounded comrade. I believe that God has called each and every one of His children to greatness, and I want to inspire you, not to reach for the moon, but to reach for the stars. It is Christ in you. And then, in turn I want you to do the same for your brothers and sisters in Christ.
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
This teaching series by Taylor Overbey is perhaps his finest series yet. We promise you this: the truth will set you free.
3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
God is Dad?
Would that raise a few eyebrows where you fellowship? When the Lord Jesus came, one of the things he did was "declare God as a Father." And when Jesus died on the cross the veil of the temple was torn in half. That was the veil that separated us from the Father. Let's don't try to sew it back up.
