|The church is the crucial center of the African-American community. Yet, while countless books have addressed individual aspects of church life, no comprehensive resource has existed that expertly explores the full scope of African-American church ministry. Until now. Written in the proven format of the Institute for Black Family Development, Evangelism and Discipleship in African-American Churches supplies a wealth of insight on winning and building disciples for Jesus Christ in the Black community. In five parts, this book covers: - history of African-American Evangelism - Taking the Lead in Evangelism and Discipleship - Training Laborers for Evangelism and Discipleship - Practicing Evangelism and Discipleship at Home and at College - Going into the Field. The contributors are all noted authorities on their topics, which range from the churchs role in evangelism to Christian education to youth and college ministry to the workplace and more. Here at last is a guidebook for pastors, evangelists, teachers, and church workers who have longed for a complete, one-step resource to help their church fulfill the Great Commission.
