Whatever the task may be - preaching, discipling, evangelizing, or administrating - this book will shed light on the way Wesleyan theology refines, informs, and enhances the theories and methods of each pastoral practice.
Combining their in-depth scholarship, practical experience, and profound understanding into this accessible and useful resource, the contributing writers demonstrate the value and effectiveness of pastoring the Wesleyan way. Not only will pastors and their associates find this book a worthwhile asset, but lay leaders, small-group facilitators, and others doing ministry in the church will also benefit from its invaluable insight and well-reasoned advice.
