Pastoral Perspectives on Life and Leadership in the Spirit

Todd Proctor, Josh Harrison


At some point, most pastors look around at the churches they lead and think to themselves, There must be more to it than this . That is to say, there must be more than our best plans, programs, and people can accomplish. Authors Todd Proctor and Josh Harrison point out what these pastors really want is the Holy Spirit.

We all want the Holy Spirit to move our churches in powerful ways, but often we don’t know quite what that looks like or how to get there. Empowered shows not only that more is available to us, more that God wants to give to pastors and churches, but also how to practically experience the Holy Spirit more.

Empowered exists to inspire and equip pastors and other church leaders to grow in their own knowledge and experience of the Holy Spirit and to lead their churches to do the same. This book provides both a theological framework for life and leadership with the Holy Spirit and practical advice from pastors who have been on this journey themselves.
