Through some miscommuniction and a very bad accident, all of my Christian Ministry books were given to a thrift store along with all my family photos that were in my former ministry office. The thrift store doesn't have any record of a box like that, but they get a lot of inventory in. I'm upset, but they were just books and can be replaced.


So long story short, I need to pull together my ministry books again - as I'm working with a new small church. I could talk about that for hours though.


If you've got ministry books on your shelf or are willing to make a deal on books - please let me know! Thanks!

eta: I'm specifically looking for Spiritual Gifts/Leadership/Ministry oriented books.

I have a ton of Christian books (all kinds) that I haven't posted yet. Are you looking for any specific authors? P.m. me if you want, & we'll see what we can figure out. :)

I have The Roots of Who We Are by Rodger Nishioka.  If you're interested in it I'll do a 2 for 1 deal on another paperback on my shelf.

The Roots of Youth Ministry series is part of a 7 book series, written by Rodger Nishioka, Lynn Turnage, and Bob Tuttle addresses both ecumenical and uniquely Presbyterian youth ministry concerns for both professional that lay educators engaged in youth ministry. In this book, Nishioka explores youth ministry in a clearly Presbyterian and Reformed context. Included is the five theological purposes essential to any successful youth ministry program, a discussion on the roles evangelism and the Bible play in a meaningful youth ministry program, including a proven ten-step method for bible study, specific helps for developing the vision statement for your youth group, and the developmental characteristics of youth and how to respond and nurture their ever-changing attitudes, needs, and behavior.
