MAXIMUM WORLD IMPACT THROUGH MINI PARACHURCH MINISTRIES
David Palmer Smitherman says, “This book demonstrates how a handful of ordinary Christians can make a tremendous impact either overseas or domestically by running a mini-parachurch ministry with no paid staff. Such tiny, frequently independent organizations are complementary to both the large parachurch ministries and church-sponsored mission trips. I do not know of another book that describes such ‘guerilla warfare’ tactics for ministry.”
The book begins by showing what mini-parachurch ministries are all about. He shares his own personal involvement with such ministries, discusses cash-flow management principles (from the Old Testament and the first-century Church), outlines how Paul worked, and covers so many other important topics, such as:
Working with donors and churches.
Working with other cultures.
Travel and medicine.
Guidance related to legalities, budgeting, the IRS, funding, communication, and many other important matters.
This book is an invaluable resource for anyone who is thinking about getting involved with mini-parachurch ministries. It gives clear direction regarding how to go about leading from a management and organizational level.
This is a comprehensive manual for mini-parachurch ministries.
