Thomson K. Mathew shares how to acquire fundamental church leadership skills

Refusing to limit his work to a seminary classroom in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Thomson K. Mathew has traveled the world teaching and preaching on God’s grace and wisdom. From his international preaching, he has discerned the requirements and duties associated with a divine calling. Now, he takes his comprehensive knowledge on the necessities of ministry and condenses his insight in the handbook, “Spirit-led Ministry in the Twenty-First Century: Spirit-Empowered Preaching, Teaching, Healing and Leadership Revised and Updated Edition.”

“Spirit-led Ministry in the Twenty-First Century” presents a guide book on effective ministry. Mathew gears his manual to ministry students, pastors and individuals pondering a career in pastoral ministry and focuses on competence in four major divisions of ministry including preaching, teaching, healing and leadership. “Spirit-led Ministry in the Twenty-First Century” is biblically sound and highlights the significance of Spirit-empowerment and excellence in ministry.

“Committing yourself to ministry is no easy task,” Mathew said. “Effective ministry is reliant on the wisdom and spirit of God. Spirit-empowerment is often an overlooked element when individuals contemplate a divine calling. Spirit-Led Ministry in the Twenty-First Century will provide readers with invaluable first-hand knowledge on how to approach ministry that is driven by His Spirit.”

Mathew seamlessly weaves the practices of ministry together with Spirit-empowerment in this training guide. For more information, please visit
