The Missional Pastor: Leading a Christ-Compelled Movement

$15.95

“The Bible is a missional document.”

The Bible’s clear missional thrust is often hidden in plain sight, and we miss it when relying too much on our traditional way of reading it. A fresh way of reading Scripture gives us new insights. It happens when we read the Bible as a missional document. It calls for a particular way of interpreting God’s Word. Affirming that pastoral ministry must be missional requires us to re-examine our calling and work as pastors.

Joe Culumber has drawn upon his vast experiences as a pastor in the Pacific Northwest and Midwest while training other pastors as a professor for colleges and seminaries in the United States and Asia. He served for 13 years as the pastor of Seattle’s Rainier Avenue Free Methodist Church in the nation’s most ethnically diverse ZIP code, and he recently led a Seattle church plant that attracted many Iranian refugees. His roles in academia have included director of Greenville University’s leadership and ministry graduate program and president of Light & Life Graduate School of Theology in the Philippines. He also has held key leadership positions in the Free Methodist Church – USA such as executive director of its international men’s ministry and vice president of its urban fellowship. He earned a Doctor of Ministry degree in church growth from Fuller Theological Seminary, a Master of Divinity from Asbury Theological Seminary, and a Bachelor of Arts in philosophy and religion from Greenville University. He and his wife, Caryl, are the recipients of the B.T. Roberts Earnest Christian Award.

    Loved this book. Dr. Culumber does such a great job of talking about the issues we have in the church today, how to identify them within our own ministries, and how to work on turning things around. This book definitely confirmed and affirmed my calling and what I feel God doing in my life!
