Judson Press book uses questions to aid spiritual growth, leadership development
VALLEY FORGE, PA (2/15/17)—Many of us know that Jesus asked many intentional questions in his ministry–questions intended to teach, guide and encourage his followers. Using a similar approach, in their new release, “8 Questions Jesus Asked: Discipleship for Leaders,” authors Daniel M. Cash, D.Min., and William H. Griffith, D.Min., focus on eight powerful questions from the Gospels, and examine how leaders can grow spiritually as disciples of Christ.
Focusing on the areas of leadership and discipleship, “8 Questions Jesus Asked” draws on the best of biblical scholarship and the wisdom of today’s leadership coaching practices. Cash and Griffith use real ministry situations to help individuals examine their faith journey and glean practical insights to:
• develop and improve leadership skills;
• respond to daily ministry challenges; and
• engage the constant change church leaders face in their communities and the world.
Designed specifically for spiritual development in small-group settings, this book is ideal for an eight-week study. It includes an appendix of additional resources for coaching and individual study. “8 Questions Jesus Asked” is a transformative guide for leaders and for newer disciples who want to grow in their leadership callings.
Cash currently serves as senior pastor of First Baptist Church, Columbus, Ind. He has more than 25 years in pastoral and regional ministry, including eight years as an area resource minister with the American Baptist Churches of Indiana and Kentucky (ABC/IN-KY), consulting with churches and facilitating pastoral leadership groups. He continues to teach through the Church Leadership Institute of ABC/IN-KY.
Griffith is a retired hospice chaplain and a 35-year veteran of pastoral ministry. His studies have focused on grief recovery, pastoral counseling and preaching. He is also author of the Judson Press book “More Than a Parting Prayer.” He is available for conferences, seminars or workshops to address the issues of grief and caregiving for the dying (www.wmgriffithbooks.com).
