Many churches are seeking an increased ministry of the Holy Spirit, but they do not have solid, contemporary tools to empower and build healthy teams. The School of the Spirit is a ministry training manual which your church can use to build a culture that celebrates the work of the Holy Spirit in a way that edifies the body. The School is designed to be run as a 12-week small group, introducing the work of the Spirit in a safe way and building healthy culture in your church.
As American culture becomes increasingly secular, pastors and church leaders are always looking for the most effective and contemporary methods of reaching a new generation. Some place emphasis on proclamation, some on the power of the Holy Spirit, and some on creating a welcoming environment. Yet, for complex reasons, these approaches are too often mutually exclusive, leaving us either preaching to the chosen few, or broadening our message so greatly that we lose focus. But do we really have to sacrifice one for the other? The Encounter-Based Church is a practical guide for pastors who want to see their churches grow not just in number but in depth of encounter with the Holy Spirit.
