• First book in years to look critically at the diaconate in the Episcopal Church Times change, and the Order of Deacons in the Episcopal Church has not remained static. While the book seeks to update contemporary knowledge about deacons, it also shows how the diaconate may be well positioned to lead the church into change that cuts across governance, formation, and ministry. While the institutional church struggles with its structure and purpose, working to change its reality and perception, the book suggests that there are diaconal leaders who have been working all along for this kind of change. The book chronicles ways in which one church order has grown, matured, adapted, adjusted, and is as effective as it is because of its dynamic nature. It is hoped that other orders might learn from the importance of being adaptable, contextual, and baptismal, while highlighting the primary lens deacons look through as they seek to fulfill what the church has called them to do.

The Ministry of God For All People Since early days of 21st Century, I have desired to write a book about 21st Century Ministry. I am glad this book on the ministry of God is out and you are holding it in your hands. This book is a ministry tool for the service of God. Everything God does is by his Holy Spirit, his power and the gospel. The Holy Spirit touches people by His presence and power. In 21st Century Ministry, like the days of Jesus Christ and the apostles (1st Century) people need to know the Holy Spirit and the word of God. The world today, need to see the Holy Spirit at work and hear the word of God. If you read the books of Luke and Acts of apostles by Luke, you will see the ministry of Jesus Christ and apostles was successful and effective because of the Holy Spirit and the word of God to the people. The 21st Century is special time for the ministry of God to the people. In 21st Century Ministry, you will realize five points for the ministry of God to the people of the world, in the day that we are living. • Ministry Source: Jesus Christ is the source of the ministry. • Ministry and Church: people must find ministry in the church. • A to Z of the Ministry of God: these are ministry insights in alphabetical order. • Ministry Reference: all key terms to do with ministry are explained from Bible. • How to minister to a person: you will learn divine ways to minister to a person. In 21st Century: it is the ministry of God that works and strategic for today. Ministry is real. In reading 21st Century Ministry book, you will agree the ministry of God brings results. God always start ministry and do it to any generation and culture by Jesus Christ, and his grace. Also in reading 21st Century Ministry, you will agree many servants and ministers of God were used for his glory. For example, men like Moses, Samuel, Elijah, Peter, Paul, Silas, and Apollos were all called, empowered and used by God in a special way. And today, God wants to use you. In 21st Century, the time has come to serve God and minister to people by the Holy Spirit and the word. In this present world both sinners and saints need the ministry of the Holy Spirit and the word of God. I have written this book: 21st Century Ministry, so that the people of the world may know God and his ministry. No man, angel or a thing is the source of the ministry but the Lord Jesus Christ.

Ordained Anglican ministry is changing rapidly. Soon the majority of clergy are likely to be volunteers and, especially in rural areas, female. All mainstream Churches recognise that new contexts need new forms of ministry. Ordained Local Ministers (OLMs) are priests specifically called out by their local congregation and ordained to minister in that locality. Half the dioceses in England and elsewhere in the Anglican Communion including Australasia, Scotland and North America have established formal schemes to enable this type of ministry. Some dioceses believe the process has helped to revitalise parishes and raise the spiritual temperature of congregations. Others have called a halt, believing their schemes have somehow gone wrong or have not 'delivered'. The time has come for a calm assessment of available evidence about an experiment into which the Church has poured considerable time, effort and money over the last twenty years. Does it have ongoing value, or is it just one more bright idea that has flourished for a season and has now had its day?

"Church is not a meeting you attend or a place you enter," write pastors Tim Chester and Steve Timmis. "It's an identity that is ours in Christ. An identity that shapes the whole of life so that life and mission become 'total church.'" With that as their premise, they emphasize two overarching principles to govern the practice of church and mission: being gospel-centered and being community-centered. When these principles take precedence, say the authors, the truth of the Word is upheld, the mission of the gospel is carried out, and the priority of relationships is practiced in radical ways. The church becomes not just another commitment to juggle but a 24/7 lifestyle where programs, big events, and teaching from one person take a backseat to sharing lives, reaching out, and learning about God together. In Total Church, Chester and Timmis first outline the biblical case for making gospel and community central and then apply this dual focus to evangelism, social involvement, church planting, world missions, discipleship, pastoral care, spirituality, theology, apologetics, youth and children's work. As this insightful book calls the body of Christ to rethink its perspective and practice of church, it charts a middle path between the emerging church movement and conservative evangelicalism that all believers will find helpful.
