25 Indispensable qualities of a competent and credible Minister
25 Indispensable qualities of a competent and credible Minister
Someone cannot just wake up one morning and proclaim himself a bonafide member of the Medical Association; Lawyers Council; Pilots Association or Engineering Council, without having gone to their school and pass through the process of becoming a recognized member of such prestigious bodies. If anyone tried it, he would be labeled a quack and an impostor! Well, the reverse is the case in Christian ministry. Anyone can just wake up and call himself or herself a minister of the gospel with high sounding and self-awarded titles. Denominations also have not helped matters. People are made ministers indiscriminately. Bible colleges and seminaries have also not fared better. People buy doctoral titles and upon graduation are ordained as ministers of the gospel. With all these errors, small wonder we have lots of incompetent and incredible ministers all over the place today.

GROW THE PASTOR GROW THE CHURCH
The pastor is the number one key to the growth of the Church. The pastor must be trained for maximum impact making in the Church. An ungroomed pastor is much more dangerous to the Church than the Church is to him. This is because the Church will be strong if the pastor is strong, the Church will be prayerful if the pastor is prayerful, the Church will be holy if the pastor is holy, the Church will be weak if the pastor is weak and the Church will grow if the pastor is growing. This book must not be missing in your library if you are a pastor that has other pastors or leaders within your leadership scope.

Sexual Purity in Leadership

Sexual Purity in Leadership


Either you like it or not, you will come across sexual pressure in your life and leadership. Leaders that are too simple, innocent and ignorant of the ravages of sexual pressure will surely fall into this trap of the enemy. Many great evangelists, preachers, pastors, bishops and church leaders have lost their anointing and ministry on the laps of strange women.
Repeatedly, the devil has succeeded in using the weapon of sex to ruin and incapacitate many once great servants of the Lord. The earlier you are properly informed about it, the better for you.
It is a must read for every success-minded leader.

True Success, Wealth and Prosperity in life and Ministry (Dr Bola Akin-John)
True Success, Wealth and Prosperity in life and Ministry
True success, wealth and prosperity in life and ministry have been focused to mean many things in the last several years. Extreme emphasis and ephemeral parameters have been used to measure who and what is success in life and ministry. Secular speakers and motivational preachers have confused and confounded the mind of sincere people as to the true yardstick of measuring ministry and personal success.
With lots of courage, Dr. Francis Bola Akin-John have come out to strike straight, strong and manly blows at this cankerworm that has eaten deep into the root and fabric of Christian ministry in Africa and world.

CHURCH OVERSEERS AND SENIOR PASTORS HANDBOOK 2
Many overseers are doing church in wrong ways simply because we fail to study, know and imbibe the true ‘being’ of the church from the scriptures. The wrong handling, comportment, behaviours of church overseers have led to the incapacitation of many local assemblies of believers today. I know an overseer who had more than 150 local churches, but who is against teaching and training of his pastors. His doing of his church is to place the Deacons and Elders over his local pastors, which led to lots of internal crisis. Well, he eventually read one of my books on Church Administration and was courageous enough to effect a change. His local churches have been enjoying new lease of life since then. This second volume is out to shed the much needed light on grey areas we have been wrongly doing the church.My aim is not to castigate, criticize or condemn, but to provide scriptural and practical insights on how every church overseer can better lead, supervise and superintend over the church of God in healthy and glorious ways.

Money, Ministers and Ministry
Money, Ministers and Ministry
Well, seeing the title of this book, someone might ask, ‘another book on Money? Yes!’. I am writing this book due to the heavy burden and promptings of the Holy Spirit of God in my heart. On one hand, many pastors and Christian leaders have written and published books on finance, wealth creation, how to be a millionaire and material prosperity in the last few years. Some are even holding seminars on finance, money, investment and wealth creation on regular basis, both on the radio and television. However, majority of their teachings are lopsided and tended only to materialism, gain and profit, with the exception of very few of them.On the other hand, you find imbalance practices in the body of Christ. The holiness movement of the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and early 80’s went to the extreme by glorifying poverty, penury, poor dressing, deprivation of good things of life and demonizing little luxury and pleasure. By the time the prosperity messages came in the middle 80’s and 90’s, there were also extreme reactions to it. Prosperity became materialism in the sense that your worth is measured by your class, car, house, dressing and standard of living. Gradually, the Church imbibed the

Guest Ministers Today

I have come to discover that there is silent crisis going on in most Churches and Ministries today. It is the crisis of Guest Speakers. It is both negative and positive in nature, but the scale tilt more towards the negative side. Church and Ministry leaders are largely mute about this crisis, but nobody can deny its existence. Quite unfortunately, it has consumed many ministries and presently, many Church leaders are trying to grapple with this problem. Well, I hope this book can be of real help to such leaders. Permit me to itemise some of the reasons for this book.

Five Fold Ministry
Five Fold Ministry

As someone who has received grace and mercy from God to speak to the church and her leaders in the last two decades. I have noticed a trend that is not too hidden from the discerning eye. In the 40’s and 50’s up to the 60’s, the most popular ministerial title among preachers of the gospel is Evangelist. Then, every gospel preacher was almost referred to as an evangelist.  But the trend began to change in the 70’s and Reverend, Doctor and Pastor came to the fore. By the middle 80’s, Bishop, Arch bishops became a widespread titles, relegating pastor to the background. Then in the mid 90’s and early part of the millennium, Apostles and Prophets began to appear more frequently in the title and prefixes of gospel ministers. These have led to many confusions and abuses in the body of Christ today. It’s an open secret that much of what is being practiced in the church today are way off the scriptural mark. The scripture gives us only five-fold ministry and leadership gifts in the church (Ephesians 4:11-12), but we have turned it to eight fold today. We have added Bishop, Arch-bishop and Assistant God (AG) to our practices with the local church been the worse for it!

25 INDISPENSABLE QUALITIES OF A
CREDIBLE AND COMPETENT MINISTER
Sincere, well-meaning and concerned Christians and leaders know that all is not well with the church of Christ in the world today. The Church is not what God expects her to be. Yes, there had been tremendous numerical growth and expansion in a way never seen before in the last couple of years. Fine, wonderful and architectural masterpiece of cathedrals have been erected as places of worship like never before. There is high visibility of preachers,

pastors, bishops and church leaders in both the print and electronic media like never before. Churches are springing up like never before. Large gatherings of Christians for worship, prayer and teaching meetings are multiplying like never before. Bible colleges and seminaries are churning out students like never before. Films that depict the cross and salvation of Christ such as ‘Passion of the Christ’, are coming out like never before and people are watching. There is high awareness of the gospel and the substitutory work of Christ is no longer hidden to majority of people in cities and even in rural areas, because satellite broadcast of Christian programmes and the internet has made all these possible. However, inspite of these giant strides, yet, there is dearth of genuine, profound and truly transformed Christians today.

HOW TO SUPPORT AND STRENGTHEN YOUR PASTOR
This is a book every genuine Christian must read over and over and allow its messages to guide his or her daily conduct in the church. Quite unfortunately, only one or two books are in the market on this very important subject. In my search for books on this subject, I only came across the one written by a foreign author. For a long time, teachings and messages on this subject have been very scarce in our churches, and some who dare to speak on the subject do it for selfish and ungodly reasons. The Scripture warns that we must know how to behave in the church.

“Walk prudently when you go to the house of God; and draw near to hear rather than to give the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they do evil”. -Eccl. 5:1

.“These things write I unto thee, hoping to come unto thee shortly: But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth”. -II Tim. 3:14-15.

The Loyal Associate
It is a reality that in any society or organization, secular or sacred, there will always be the leader and associate leaders. It is also a truth that different kinds of relationship exist between the leader and his associate – loyal and disloyal, faithful and unfaithful, dependable and undependable and so on. Generally, the nature of the relationship will no doubt impact on the ministry in their hand.
This book is Dr. Francis Bola Akin-John humble effort at establishing the right type of relationship between the leader and his associates, providing the right atmosphere for it and bringing sanity into the ungodly madness of unfaithful, disloyal and undependable associates.

In my quest to see healthy growth in local churches, I have come to the painful conclusion that Church Overseers hold the key. Therefore if they are not reached, then there is little or no hope for the healthy growth of our local churches. And since most Overseers leading churches are not readily available for conferences, then, this three part book is my attempt to pass some vital and crucial information to them concerning their onerous and delicate assignments.

Frank Talk To Men
Frank Talk To Men
In 2004, the Lord gave me the mandate of raising, connecting, coaching and empowering men to become real men. Prior to that time, I had little insight on the role of men in the church and society. Yes, I have written some books on the importance of the leader, yet I did not have a full grasp of the qualities of the man behind the ministry. The insights, revelations and illuminations that came to me as I study, research and examine the scriptures and the society concerning who a real man should be, led me to start MEN MATTERS MINISTRY, which holds Men Seminars on quarterly basis, and God has used it to transform many mere men to be the real men that can be used by God to transform the society for good.The times we live in call for real men. We need more clear-thinking, disciplined, hard-working, straight-talking, spiritually mature and godly men that can lead the society to the right paths.

PROPHETS AND PROPHETIC MINISTRY
PROPHET AND PROPHETIC MINISTRY

One of the most prominent gifts among the five-fold ministry gifts that God graciously gave to the church is the prophetic. And in this 21st Century, there has been a great upsurge in the prophetic as a result of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.

“And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy:” – Acts 2:17-18

The prophetic ministry is one of the most misunderstood and abused today. In some church circles, it is wholly rejected, denounced and quenched simply because they believe that God has said all He ever wants to say in the Bible. While in others, little or small recognition is grudgingly given to it. However, many other Christians and churches welcome and accept the prophetic, but the ways it is being practiced leave much to be desired.
