Excellence for the Rest of Us: Laity Alive in the Church and Marketplace is a book about how the laity can truly be empowered and released for ministry. Think of the energy, vitality and satisfaction that result when the members of the body of Christ get busy and really make an impact in their church and community. Leonard Albert lays out a detailed organizational plan in nine easy steps involving evaluation, recruitment, spiritual gifting, small groups and teams and suggested teaching and training classes. Scores of “inreach” (church) and “outreach” (community) projects are listed with details on implementation.
In this book, Leonard draws from his many years of experience in working with thousands of churches and business and community leaders in the area of equipping and mobilizing the laity to take church to the marketplace. He offers a fresh approach for reaching a contemporary society. Excellence for the Rest of Us is a workable and proven plan to help all believers become ministers of the Gospel where they live and work.
