IT’S A WONDER THAT WITH ALL OUR SLEEK AND INNOVATIVE MINISTRY MODELS OUR CHURCHES ARE STILL DECLINING—UNTIL WE READ ACTS 6:4, "BUT WE WILL GIVE OURSELVES CONTINUALLY TO PRAYER AND THE MINISTRY OF THE WORD".
After a long, sometimes trying ministry journey, Daniel Henderson was relieved to discover what the Apostles knew from the start: The main thing must stay the main thing. It worked in their pagan times, and it will in ours.
OUR BEST MINISTRY MODEL IS THE FIRST ONE
Our churches don’t need fresh models and fancy things; they need the Holy Spirit, who works powerfully when we pray and proclaim the word. Read Old Paths, New Power and follow God’s master plan.
Old Paths, New Power: Awakening Your Church through Prayer and the Ministry of the Word calls us back to the tried-and-true: pray and proclaim the word.
- Be a leader who walks with the Lord
- Develop a strong prayer culture in your life and ministry
- Preach with unction, dependence, and integrity
- Equip every saint for the work of the ministry
- Embrace the sufficiency of the gospel
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT OLD PATHS, NEW POWER
As we pray, God is making us spiritually fit to receive what He is already willing to do. If you have great dreams for what you long to see God do . . . if you believe He is already willing . . . if you want to grow those you lead in their commitment to “praying the price,” definitely read Old Paths, New Power, by my friend Daniel Henderson. Dr. James MacDonald, Senior Pastor of Harvest Bible Chapel and Author of Act Like Men
Daniel Henderson is one of the finest teachers I know. When he teaches on prayer, he is unparalleled. In this masterful new volume, he invests all of the prayer treasure he has collected over a lifetime. When you finish reading it, you will eagerly get on your knees, and vow to never pray carelessly, casually, or complacently again. Dr. Richard Blackaby, President of Blackaby Ministries International, Co-author of Experiencing God.
“Thank you, Daniel, for calling us back to the centerpiece of all ministry -- prayer and the ministry of the word of God. As busy pastors we can be distracted by many good things and incrementally drawn away from this core calling. We then reap a harvest of ineffectiveness, frustration and spiritual mediocrity. Old Paths, New Power is a timely warning to choose that which God blesses and to order our lives and ministries around that which produces eternal results.” Dr. Crawford W. Loritts, Jr., Author, Speaker, Radio Host, Sr. Pastor Fellowship Bible Church Roswell, Georgia
