How could one chase a thousand, and two put ten thousand to flight...? (Deuteronomy 32:30) Today's pastor or church leader faces a host of dangers, both physical and spiritual, that can destroy ministries, families, and even take the very life of the leader. Thankfully, God has not left us defenseless in the spiritual battle against the forces of evil. In this much-needed book, Bryan Cutshall does a masterful job of clearly defining the often-overlooked and seldom-appreciated role of the armorbearer. Using biblical examples and references, he paints an accurate portrait of the armorbearer's role, position, and relationship with his or her leader. When church leaders understand and utilize this important spiritual ministry, the kingdom of God will be able to advance, stronger, and mightier than ever before.
