God's Armor Bearer:How to Serve God's LeadersTerry NanceHarrison HouseISBN 0892747234This is a great little book! It will help all Christians to see their role to support their leaders. It is written by an associate pastor who discovered these truths about his role in regards to his head pastor. Yet anyone who serves in a church can learn from these short lessons. Weather you're a small group leader, a eucharistic minister, worship leader - if you serve the body of Christ in any kind of role, this book will help you serve better.Often people take one role in serving the church and see it as a stepping tone to advancement to a `higher' or `better' role. That is not he case. We are to serve our leaders and serve them well. `We have got to start seeing our position as one called and instituted by God. We must be willing to stay in it for the rest of our lives, if that is what God wants.' p.46Through serving the leaders in the church we are fulfilling part of our vocational call and helping to build up the whole body of Christ.Nance has some great insights that he shares with us: "We can see that the most important part of the Armorbearing is a ministry of prayer, watchfulness, and intercession. The Armorbearer is to prove his sincerity, loyalty, and courage in the spirit realm through prayer and intercession." p.52 and he emphatically states: "Every child of God, from leaders on down, needs to develop the character of an armorbearer. I believe that, right now in the Body of Christ, we need teaching on the development of the character of Christ. We have learned a lot about faith, prosperity and intercession, but I feel we have got to place more emphasis on character development." p.
