One great resource that I have used is the book “The Ministry Staff Member: A Contemporary, Practical Handbook to Equip, Encourage, and Empower.” It is a book written for the purpose of preparing anyone working in a church for any situation that might arise. Whether you are a paid-staff member or a volunteer, this book is an invaluable resource to you.
This book isn’t set up like a regular book. Instead, it is divided into chapters that are like “mini- books” on their own. Have a question about a certain role or responsibility in the church? You don’t have to read the whole book to find the answer, just turn to a certain chapter and you have several pages of wisdom at your disposal. Dr. Fagerstrom’s experience gives this book a substantial amount of worth. This book is definitely worth the $15-$20 dollars that you might have to spend on it.
