Publisher's Description

You probably have more “friends” than ever--once you tally up all your social networking connections. But virtual relationships alone can’t meet the Church’s desperate need for spiritually mature women and men to mentor younger believers to be faithful servants of Christ.
If you are like many believers, you may not feel prepared to be a trusted influencer because you haven’t had a mentor yourself. The Cry for Spiritual Mothers and Fathers, written by seasoned disciple and Christian leadership trainer Larry Kreider, will give you the proven biblical keys you need to become a godly mentor. Discover why spiritual mother- and fatherhood is every believer’s calling, and find out how to nurture a spiritual family that expands the kingdom of God.  This is the essential handbook for answering God’s call to spiritual parenthood.

Editorial Reviews

There are a few significant books on my bookshelf about the important issue of spiritual fathering and mothering, but none of them tops this one. Larry Kreider has reached into the storehouse of his unique experience and insight to offer us what will no doubt become a new standard on the subject. Because Larry’s understanding of the role of spiritual parents in the family of God is so profound, I enthusiastically recommend this book to you.
Dr. David Cannistraci, Senior Pastor, GateWay City Church, San Jose, CA; Author, God’s Vision for Your Church

Larry Kreider is a true servant to the Church, a leader whose dimension of effectiveness in advancing the Kingdom and shaping leaders evidences a level of gifting and humility that is so apostolic that it doesn’t need that title to certify it. I trust this man because his heart is pure and his mind is clear.
Jack W. Hayford, Founder and Chancellor, The King’s University, Los Angeles and Dallas

Larry Kreider’s book The Cry for Spiritual Mothers and Fathers reflects the values and vision he has imparted to DOVE Christian Fellowship International. The wisdom of these pages shows why DOVE has produced a stable, growing apostolic stream. When many American movements have declined or disappeared, Larry shows the way to growth and stability through spiritual parenting.
Dr. Daniel C. Juster, Director, Tikkun International

I devoured Larry’s book in one reading. Now I want to go back and digest it so I can pass on to others what I have learned.
Floyd McClung, Founder, All Nations, Cape Town, South Africa

Once again Larry Kreider has pioneered the way for others with this new book. He combines experience, knowledge and passion to guide us into Kingdom community. Read it with a highlighter in your hand and a person you wish to mentor in your heart!
Ralph Neighbour, Touch Ministries, Texas

Larry has done it again! He’s put cutting-edge concepts into laymen’s language. This is by far the best book on spiritual parenting that I have read on this subject. The combination of biblical principles and practical examples easily goes cross-cultural. This should be read by senior church and missions’ leaders, but also by young leaders who can begin to apply the teachings immediately. Larry has true authority and experience that many will learn from. Buy numerous copies of this book, practice the principles and, whatever your ministry is, it will be multiplied into many future generations. Give this book away to faithful men and women now.
Jim Orred, Youth With A Mission, Kailua-Kona, Hawaii

Larry Kreider is a spiritual father! In his book The Cry for Spiritual Mothers and Fathers, he not only extends a call to those who have a heart to train and establish others, but shares practical wisdom that helps one generation establish the next. This book provides how-to blueprints and challenges all of us need to move beyond our dysfunctional and abusive relationships of the past to become models of relationship building for a new generation. The Cry for Spiritual Mothers and Fathers will help you to develop a new lifestyle—after all, we are always influencing someone.
Dr. Chuck D. Pierce, President, Glory of Zion International Ministries; President, Global Spheres, Inc.

Larry Kreider has identified the key issue in the Church world today: Will the Church become a parenting force to impart health to a broken world? The implications of the spirit of fathering affect every area of personal and corporate spiritual life. There is an urgent call today for relationships that provide healthy spiritual nurture and authority. God is calling us to actively give ourselves to both being spiritually fathered as well as becoming spiritual fathers. Larry Kreider not only teaches on spiritual fathering, he is a spiritual father—and through his words, the Lord calls us to maturity.
Dr. Robert Stearns, Founder and Executive Director, Eagles’ Wings

The Cry for Spiritual Mothers and Fathers is much more than a road map showing how we who are mature Christians must nurture the newer generations. It is all of that, but it is also an awesome word for cutting-edge leadership in today’s Church. I, for one, want to be the kind of fatherly leader that Larry Kreider urges us to be.
C. Peter Wagner, Vice President, Global Spheres, Inc.

What a great book! It’s down to earth, practical, understandable and applicable to mentoring emerging leaders today—it’s authentic. Larry Kreider is a father in the Church today. He writes out of who he is and the practical experience he has gained over the years. This book is a must for those who are mentoring or discipling others.
Barbara J. Yoder, Senior Pastor, Shekinah International Apostolic Center, Ann Arbor, Michigan
