“We thank you for the inspiration and strength

That you have given to Madiba,

Enabling him, over so many years, to draw out the best in others,

rousing us always, by word and example,

to seek the highest good for every child of this nation.”

So prayed Archbishop Thabo Makgoba with Nelson Mandela in his home in 2009 at the request of Graca Machel. This marked the start of an unusual relationship between southern Africa’s Anglican leader and Mandela in his quietening years. Join Makgoba in his journey towards faith, from his boyhood in Alex as the son of a ZCC pastor to Bishopscourt and praying with Mandela. He shares his feelings about his pastoral approach to the world icon, and how they influenced his thinking on ministering to church and nation in the current era. What did praying with those nearest and dearest to Mandela mean? What was his spirituality? In trying to answer these questions, Makgoba opens a window on South Africa’s spiritual make-up and life.

The 5 Levels Of Leadership - Proven Steps To Maximize Your Potential (Paperback, 10th Anniversary Edition): John C. Maxwell The 5 Levels Of Leadership - Proven Steps To Maximize Your Potential (Paperback, 10th Anniversary Edition)
John C. Maxwell

True leadership isn't a matter of having a certain job or title. In fact, being chosen for a position is only the first of the five levels every effective leader achieves.

To become more than "the boss" people follow only because they are required to, you have to master the ability to invest in people and inspire them. To grow further in your role, you must achieve results and build a team that produces. You need to help people to develop their skills to become leaders in their own right. And if you have the skill and dedication, you can reach the pinnacle of leadership-where experience will allow you to extend your influence beyond your immediate reach and time for the benefit of others.

The 5 Levels of Leadership are:

  • Position - People follow because they have to
  • Permission - People follow because they want to
  • Production - People follow because of what you have done for the organization
  • People Development - People follow because of what you have done for them personally
  • Pinnacle - People follow because of who you are and what you represent

Through humor, in-depth insight, and examples, internationally recognized leadership expert John C. Maxwell describes each of these stages of leadership. He shows you how to master each level and rise up to the next to become a more influential, respected, and successful leader.

Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul - A Celtic Guide to Listening to Our Souls and Saving the World (Hardcover): John Philip Newell Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul - A Celtic Guide to Listening to Our Souls and Saving the World (Hardcover)
John Philip Newell
R337 Discovery Miles 3 370 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

A leading spiritual teacher reveals how Celtic spirituality -listening to the sacred around us and inside us - can help us heal the earth, overcome our conflicts, and reconnect with ourselves. John Philip Newell shares the long hidden tradition of Celtic Christianity, explaining how this earth - based spirituality can help us rediscover the natural rhythms of life and deepen our spiritual connection with God, with each other, and with the earth. Newell introduces some of Celtic Christianity's leading practitioners, both saints and pioneers of faith, whose timeless wisdom is more necessary than ever, including: Pelagius, who shows us how to look beyond sin to affirm our sacredness as part of all God's creation, and courageously stands up for our principles in the face of oppression. Brigid of Kildare, who illuminates the interrelationship of all things and reminds us of the power of the sacred feminine to overcome those seeking to control us. John Muir, who encourages us to see the holiness and beauty of wilderness and what we must do to protect these gifts. Teilhard de Chardin, who inspires us to see how science, faith, and our future tell one universal story that beings with sacredness. By embracing the wisdom of Celtic Christianity, we can learn how to listen to the sacred in nature and within one another, but our culture - at the times even our faiths - have made us forget what each of us already know deep in our souls but have learned to surpress. Sacred Earth, Sacred Soul offers a new spiritual foundation for our lives, once centered on encouragement, guidance, and hope for creating a better world.

Every person on the planet was born for significance, created by God to make a difference in His kingdom. Fulfilling God’s purpose is a lifelong endeavor, but it comes with a cost.

But He is also a Father who loves us and doesn’t want to increase our blessing beyond what we have the heart and maturity to carry well. What does it look like when significance is carried well? God is glorified, we are strengthened, and the people around us benefit. Senior pastor of Bethel Church Bill Johnson invites you to discover God’s wonderful intention for the church, His body, the literal dwelling place of the Holy Spirit on earth. In Born for Significance, you’ll find:

  • The true purpose of significance, blessing, and favor
  • What it means to “reign in life” and how to do it
  • Why honor and loyalty matter to God
  • How to recognize when opposition is leading you into your promotion
  • Essential tools for advancement in the kingdom of God
  • You were born for significance. You were designed by God to advance His kingdom on
  • earth and leave a legacy to your family and future generations. Come and discover who God made you to be. Once you do, you will never want to be anyone else.
  • This book will empower you to live passionately and faithfully for God and to leave a legacy of blessing and favor that impacts future generations.

Seeing that this is my third published book, do you think I now qualify to introduce myself as “Author Afrika Mhlophe”? Or, better still, how about the superlative “Major Author”? Somehow I don’t think anyone would be impressed with such self-aggrandizement. Besides, my vocation as a writer is a separate issue from my identity. And the same is true of my roles as a pastor and public speaker. I never mention these roles except when someone prompts me by asking the question, “What do you do?”

The operative word in this question is do. The word refers to that which a person carries out or performs. In my case, I do write for various publications, I do lead a church and I do speak on various platforms. But—and this is a very important “but”—I am not a performer but a person. I am also not a position or a role. For instance, you might refer to South African Olympic gold medalist Wade van Niekerk as an athlete—in acknowledgement of what he does. But you will be conscious that Van Niekerk is a human being and not a human doing.

My involvement in ministry now spans 20 years, but I am always at loss for words when I meet ministers who insist on introducing themselves with their ecclesiastical “titles”. I sometimes wish to blurt out and say, “But ‘apostle’ is not your first name.” There are two things that are wrong with this obsession with titles.

Andy Stanley
R200 R165 Discovery Miles 1 650 Save R35 (18%) In stock

Every Sunday people walk into your church and decide if they will return the following week before the preacher even opens his mouth. Many of those people don't know what to make of Jesus. They're hesitant to be in church. They're not sure they belong. But over and over in the pages of scripture, we see something extraordinary. People who were nothing like Jesus liked Jesus. Shouldn't that be true of the church as well? In Going Deep & Wide, Andy Stanley lays out a blueprint and offers practical steps to help you turn up the irresistible in your church. Each section includes discussion materials that walk you deeper into the content of Deep & Wide and invites conversations about how to apply what you've learned.

Gospel-Centered Kids Ministry (Paperback): Brian Dembowczyk Gospel-Centered Kids Ministry (Paperback)

R190 R157 Discovery Miles 1 570 Save R33 (17%) Ships in 5 - 10 working days

In Gospel-Centered Kids Ministry, the story of Jesus interacting with the Emmaus disciples provides an outline for what a gospel-centered kids ministry looks like: Gospel-centered teaching that points to Jesus in every session, gospel-centered transformation that positions the gospel to change a kid's heart and then his behavior, and gospel-centered mission where kids join in on the big story of Jesus that continues to unfold.

Seven out of 10 kids will walk away from church after they turn 18. About five will return when they have families of their own, but two will never return. Clearly something isn't connecting with our kids. As kids ministry leaders, we need to take a hard look at what we are missing in our kids ministries and provide kids the one thing that will satisfy them and keep them connected to the church--the gospel.

Gospel-Centered Kids Ministry also addresses communicating with and encouraging gospel-centered leaders and parents as part of your ministry.

In a world in which resources are unjustly distributed, identities are under threat and solidarity is fragile, the toughest task facing humanity is the quest for community. Yet the contribution of the church to that task is undermined because its message and organization remain stuck in the past. Christians fail to grasp that in the gifts of the kingdom community - life, liberation, love and learning - they hold the key to what the search for community is all about. This book describes those gifts and how a servant church, through the creation of its diaconate as an order of mission, might offer a fragmented world new hope.The Methodist Church in Britain is taken as a model of what could be achieved.

This book series examines issues of Faith and Order, and to some extent issues of life and work, from the perspective of leadership in a modern Pentecostal church movement. The series addresses the harnessing of ethnicity nationality and personal history in the search for church unity. It tries to answer questions such as what is means to be Apostolic in 21st Century Pentecostalism.

The author also encourages greater contributions of convergence Pentecostals to the community cohesion, and to peace and justice.
