15 Characteristics of Effective Pastors

15 Characteristics of Effective Pastors: How to Strengthen Your Inner Core and Ministry Impact

I just started reading this book (signed by the author) and have found it an excellent read not just for Pastors but for anyone who works with people.

Some of the characteristics are not new, but for me they were very refreshing and challenging. In this book, authors Mannoia and Walkemeyer examine the foundations of pastoral effectiveness and bring together nine experienced pastoral leaders to discuss the basic characteristics that exist in effective pastors.

If you are a reader, you defintely need to add this book to your library. It’s an encouraging book thats helps to evaluate yourself and your ministry.

The Bible @ your FingerTips, FREE.

If you are a pastor, Sunday school teacher, small group leader, or you just like to study the scriptures, InstaVerse will help you quickly and accurately look up and insert Bible passages for your sermon, lesson, or assignment into any document, fast!

Introducing Instaverse.com.  This Free little application gives you access to the Bible at your fingertips.  You just have to try it to appreciate it.

InstaVerse runs on Windows XP and Windows 2000.  It is not Mac compatible.  For a Free Bible program for Mac’s click here.

Anytime your cursor passes over a Bible verse in web site, or as soon as you type the verse, the scripture pops up on your screen.  This is very helpful when studying.  From there you can cut, paste, etc.   This little program saves me a lot of time because I don’t have to open a bible program or web site to access a Bible verse.  With Instaverse the scriptures are literally at my fingertips.

InstaVerse recognizes scripture abbreviations like “Jn 3:16” in web pages and email documents.  Even if you point at an abbreviation with your mouse, it pops up the Bible text for that reference.

InstaVerse is always available (its icon is in the Windows tray—the area in the lower right near the clock), you can use it to quickly look up a verse, and then insert scripture text into a lesson, sermon, or email.

InstaVerse also has the convenient ability to “inject” scripture quickly into a document you are writing.  Just type any scripture reference (e.g. “Gen 1:1-3”) and then press a hotkey, and InstaVerse replaces your reference with the full Bible text, instantly!  Although the Free version only comes in the King James version, it still very helpful and saves time.
