Biblical Eldership

Christian ministry today carries with it one of the highest causality rates of any profession in society. Scores of pastors throw in the towel every month due to overwork, under pay, and being inadequately equipped to navigate the contemporary world of parish ministry.

 






Let's See What Sticks

Let’s See What Sticks is an “in season” message for the Body of Christ. One of the book’s themes is that the church in America has failed to be “salt and light” and is mostly standing on the sidelines, effectively disengaged. Many people have a general concept of the Kingdom of God but do not know how to relate kingdom living to the reality of life in the twenty-first century. This book will help the reader answer the question “Where do I fit in and how do I use my particular resources most effectively?”

 





Ice on Fire

Ice on Fire is a book that delineates the transition from cold, nominal, traditional Christianity to a church context that is vital, alive, vision driven and resplendent with opportunities for mission and ministry in the 21st century.  Many pastors across America are stuck in a cultural Christianity that lacks power and passion for the local church context.  My book will help motivate church leadership to move off the plateau and up the mountain to the fire of God.

 




Biblical Eldership

Christian ministry today carries with it one of the highest causality rates of any profession in society. Scores of pastors throw in the towel every month due to overwork, under pay, and being inadequately equipped to navigate the contemporary world of parish ministry.

In addition, we live in a world where sin is pervasive and the gravitational pull of fallen human nature presently has the upper hand. We desperately need a new paradigm of ministry based on a new hermeneutic of Biblical understanding concerning the employ of the gifts of the Spirit and the unfolding of God’s action in history with the prophetic outpouring mentioned by the prophet Isaiah 59:20-21 and confirmed at Pentecost in Act chapter 2: 1-39.

I believe thorough openness to the prophetic invasion of the Holy Spirit coupled with the development of an elders ministry in the local church, could have a dramatic positive effect on not only the quality of Christian ministry but also the effectiveness and longevity of the present crisis in attrition among Christian pastors. My intention is to develop a template for elders’ ministry in the local church where the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit will adequately level the playing field.

Let’s See What Sticks is an “in season” message for the Body of Christ. One of the book’s themes is that the church in America has failed to be “salt and light” and is mostly standing on the sidelines, effectively disengaged. Many people have a general concept of the Kingdom of God but do not know how to relate kingdom living to the reality of life in the twenty-first century. This book will help the reader answer the question “Where do I fit in and how do I use my particular resources most effectively?”

Let’s See What Sticks unpacks several core concepts related to New Testament Kingdom Living, helping the reader to connect to vital Christianity that can change their lives and communities. Author Scott Kelso offers both wisdom from scripture and practical, experience-based guidance for New Testament Kingdom Living here and now, addressing issues such as prayer, prophecy, spiritual warfare, and unity in the Body of Christ.

Kelso shares his vision for a well-oiled twenty-first-century church that is passionate, relevant, effective, love-driven, and walking in the power of the Holy Spirit. The reader is invited into Christian living that is transformative, not only as it touches this world, but also the world to come.

This book will provide an excellent study tool for pastors to engage their congregations in thinking differently about Christian formation. Scott Kelso’s message will resonate with pastors, teachers, and all members of the body of Christ who want to be part of the revival and transformation of the church and our nation.

“I know of only one source that has the moral authority to call us back to God. That is God’s people—the church. The problem is that the church is very weak and anemic. She is morally challenged in an hour when her call is vital for the health of the nation. My thesis then is simply this: when the church returns to her original mandate and call, our nation will have no choice but to rouse from its stupor. If the church and its leaders, pastors, deacons, and elders can rally to the call of God at this hour, and like the prophets of old, first dedicate themselves anew to the covenant to which they were called, then hope is at hand.”

“His sections on the Holy Spirit and charismatic renewal are prophetic statements about the direction of the church in the 21st century. I pray that many pastors as well as laypersons will read this book and will be changed from coldness and ice to fire-brands for God.”

If the church could ever get a hold of how phenomenal God really is, it would catch on fire.

No, I am talking about the wherewithal to do and accomplish the will of God in ministry that will punch a hole in the darkness and make a difference in the community where God has placed us.

I want to challenge every pastor in America to hold out for the Land of More Than Enough.
