Gospel DNA: 21 ministry values for growing churches
177 in stock
Acts chapter 20 tells how Paul sat down to train the elders of the Ephesian church he had planted some years before. The principles of gospel ministry he lays down are simple, but absolute dynamite. In 21 simple, practical principles, Richard Coekin sets out how this 'Gospel DNA' should shape our approach to building churches today. This book draws on his experience as Director of the London-based Co-Mission church-planting initiative in the UK.
"I cannot imagine that any church serious about Jesus, His gospel, and His Word could not make excellent use of this short book that engagingly articulates old 'ministry values' in fresh and memorable ways."?
- Don Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"It is often said that gospel truth is not merely the means for conversion but is also a shaping power for all Christian life and ministry. But such a statement is often followed by generalities. Richard Coekin has developed a robustly biblical and eminently practical handbook for applying the gospel to the ministry of the local church."?
