Pastors of smaller membership churches have a huge calling. They are responsible for changing the world! Rather than look at the small number of members in their congregations as a limitation, pastors should view their congregations as an elite force, able to impact their communities for the Kingdom of God. Small Church, Excellent Ministry is a handbook designed for pastors serving in smaller membership churches. This book will help you to conduct your ministry with excellence. Written by practitioners and professors, the information provided in this book is on the vanguard of pastoral ministry and is useful for training pastors to be leaders of their churches. ""In Small Church, Excellent Ministry, Jeffrey Farmer gathers a team of pastor-scholars who provide biblical and practical guidance for those who serve in smaller membership churches. The resultant book will be a blessing for those pastors and a much-needed resource for the church."" --Adam Harwood, Associate Professor, New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary Jeffrey C. Farmer is the Associate Director of the Caskey Center for Church Excellence and Associate Professor of Evangelism and Church Ministry. A native of Atlanta, Georgia, he has served in different ministry positions in Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Louisiana. n
