PastorsServiceManualThis manual helps evangelical pastors give shape and language to the many kinds of services they’re called upon to officiate, such as:

  • General worship service resources (from Calls to Worship to Benedictions)
  • Baptism
  • Communion
  • The Liturgical Year
  • Commissioning of a missionary
  • Installation of a pastor or lay leaders
  • Reception of new members
  • Dedication of a church building or ministry tools
  • Celebration of a church anniversary
  • The wedding service
  • Renewal of wedding vows
  • Dedication of children
  • Dedication of a home
  • The funeral service
  • Anointing the sick
  • Ministering to the bereaved
  • and many others

For each service, pastors are given both traditional and contemporary language, as well as simple bullet point ideas for prayers, Scripture texts, appropriate comments, and other ideas.

The manual is a practical, half-inch thick, 6 inch by 9 inch, three-ring binder so you can add and remove pages. It also comes with an access code to a digital copy which you can easily download in order to customize services for your own purposes. Available in both NIV and ESV.
