This book is very helpful to my ministry right now. It is very practical and rich . It has helped me to grow both spiritually and administratively as an individual as well as the leader of the church board. The great qualitative growth I experience personally in my life which affects my pastoral ministry in Papua New Guinea is because I was under the powerful teaching and coaching of Dr. Fairbanks and his dynamic wife Anne at Asia-Pacific Nazarene Theological Seminary-Philippines. The result of practicalizing this material has led to the qualitative growth of the church I have pastored. I believe others are experiencing the same in their life and ministry.
