If you’ve chosen to train for full–time paid ministry, you’ll have, no doubt, begun to think through which church you plan to belong to in the future. This decision has big consequences not only for where and how you train, but also for your future ministry.
Graham Beynon, an experienced church minister, helps explore the areas that we should be sensitive to when deciding which denomination we should work with. The reality is that each of us will need to carefully consider our own theological convictions, background and personal preferences to come to a decision. In this short book Graham helps us navigate these factors as he seeks to show and persuade of the value of Free Church ministry.
On the whole I found this book extremely helpful for both sharpening my convictions and enhancing my appreciation for other forms of church government. As one currently learning the leadership ropes in an independent church I appreciated this little case for independency. I’d highly recommend this little book to anyone thinking through whether an independent church is for them and also for anyone from a different denomination wishing to appreciate the inner workings and principles behind independency. First and foremost, however, I loved this book because it is not written by an academic, but, rather, by a man who desires to see the gospel flourish in our land. I praise God that there are many who hold different convictions to the ones expressed in this book but who are united in this common goal and desire to see the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ permeate every home and heart in our nation.
