“I Am A Church Member”
We will begin a new series this Sunday called “I Am A Church Member,” which is based upon the book, I Am A Church Member by Thom Rainer, president and CEO of LifeWay. Here’s what others are saying about this book:
- “I always tell young business leaders that business is easy . . . until people get involved. Once you bring more than two people in, you’re setting the stage for a lot of disagreements—and a lot of drama. The same is true for churches. In I Am a Church Member, Thom Rainer reminds us that it is possible to have an effective, unified church body—even if the people in the pews have different opinions.”—Dave Ramsey, New York Times best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio show host
- “What would happen if people didn’t choose a church based on what they could receive from it but what they could give to it? What if they joined not only to be encouraged but to edify; not just to be served but to use their gifts and resources to serve? Dr. Rainer bravely and insightfully answers these questions in I Am a Church Member—a book that every single congregant needs to have in their hands. Small in size but mighty in impact, this resource will remind God’s people of what the church was always intended to be and the power it was always meant to unleash. It is life giving and vision lending to a pastor and his people as they engage in community. God’s house, across the globe, will be better off because of it.”—Priscilla Shirer, Bible Teacher and Author
- “Timely. Needed. Powerful. Simple. Clear. Biblical. This books needs to be read by every pastor and church member globally.”— Dr. Ronnie Floyd, President of The Southern Baptist Convention
I strongly encourage each family to pick up a FREE copy of the book this Sunday. Being a church member is both a great privilege and responsibility. My prayer is that we will walk away from this study with a renewed understanding of what it means to be a church member as well as a renewed desire to live up to the privileges and responsibilities God has entrusted to us.
Gratefully Serving Him
