Pastoral Care in the Small Membership Church (Ministry in the Small Membership Church) Reviews
This is a good book for beginning pastoral students. It covers all the basics, and gives Reading recommendations for further education.
While the concepts he presented were valid, they were too basic. This book was required reading for a class I'm taking to become a Certified Ruling Elder.
Operative word is "Care."
I love this book! This has been very helpful in every aspect! It has helped me in some of the areas that I have started doing
Has some good information as well as weak in some areas. I enjoyed reading this book.
This is truly an inspiring book for all ministers who would like to be successful both in family and ministry. Two thumbs up👍👍
Came fast and looks good. Thanks and God Bless!
