Endorsements

I love pastors. I am humbled by the fact that pastors often come to me for advice and wisdom. Now I have a resource that answers so many of their questions. This book is fantastic! There is no doubt that it will be on my shelf as a reference for years to come. Great work Gary McIntosh and Charles Arn!
-Thom S. Rainer,

A wealth of insights for pastors on the day-to-day issues of leading an effective church.
-Ed Stetzer,
author of Subversive Kingdom

Gary McIntosh and Charles Arn are friends of mine, and I am thrilled that they have prepared this book. Both of these writers have an excellent history of research as well as a heart commitment to the church and the ministry of Jesus Christ. When they write What Every Pastor Should Know, they mean it, and every pastor should read this book to find out what they must know.
-Elmer Towns,
cofounder, Liberty University

What Every Pastor Should Know is an invaluable reference book. Its value lies in being well researched, comprehensive, specific, and practical. It is also 'user friendly' in listing so many guidelines and rules to help church leaders keep on course and not become sidetracked.
-Eddie Gibbs,
Professor Emeritus, Fuller Seminary

Drawing on their combined church leadership wisdom, my friends Gary McIntosh and Charles Arn have created an incredible reference guide that reflects their passion for helping local churches fulfill the Great Commission. What Every Pastor Should Know is aptly named; the practical information in these pages is essential knowledge for those of us who want to lead growing, effective churches.

    This has become one of my favorite books because of all the helpful advice and tips found in it. This book is a must have for any church leader or Pastor. As a leader, I find myself using lots of the information found in here. There are chapters covering Evangelism, Worship, Visitors, Newcomers, Small Groups, Christian Education, Programs, volunteers, etc. It covers a lot of topics and does it well. These are things that only Pastors would know from years of experience. It is a great reference guide that I will use again and again.
