What They Are Saying About “Where are the Miracles”
Dr. Billy Compton, Pastor, First Baptist Church Mt Washington, KY. As pastor of a local church for more than four decades, rarely have I known a person like my friend, Rod O’Neil, who has the passion in accepting the challenge of pursuing a topic with as much commitment as Where are the Miracles? This book guides you to think with renewed interest about whether God works through healings and miracles in our present age as He did in the first century.
What They Are Saying About “Guide to Benevolence Giving for Church and Family”
Southeast Christian Church, Louisville, KY (one of the top 10 largest churches in America). “Many churches today are reexamining their benevolence ministries, realizing they are doing more hurting than helping. There is a trend in the area of church benevolence that matches the premise of Rod’s book, (and) I really appreciate Rod’s point that if benevolence was available for the Prodigal Son, he would never have returned to his father.” [Southeast Christian Church has made Guide to Benevolence Giving for Church and Family required reading for all of their benevolence ministry workers]. – Dennis Dillman, Benevolence Chairman.
Dr. Paul H. Chitwood, Executive Director of the Kentucky Baptist Convention, previous Assistant Professor of Evangelism and Church Growth at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; and previous Pastor, First Baptist Church, Mt. Washington, Kentucky. “O’Neil carefully sets forth his case for how to deal with benevolent funds in a way that is faithful to Scripture and allows God to accomplish His work in the lives of those who are struggling with their finances”
New Focus, a faith‐based organization and a ministry of Here’s Life Inner City, Campus Crusade for Christ is focused on helping people out of poverty and training churches in the area of benevolence giving with accountability. “After reading Guide to Benevolence Giving for Church and Family my staff told me this is the book that I should have written” — Jenny Forner, Founder
Christian Bookstore Manager. As a bookstore manager I heard the response of my customers who said it was the very thing they needed to both set up and administer a ministry to help both those inside and outside the church who ask for help. It has also been invaluable in my own work heading up the benevolence team at my church. I commend it to all—families, individuals and church bodies—who have a heart for helping those less fortunate — Harold Smith, Painesville, Ohio
Christianity Today’s Building Church Leaders. O’Neil’s book was extensively quoted in a recent Benevolence Ministry article for Christianity Today’s Building Church Leaders readership. Citing the book’s practicality, the Benevolence Ministry article also highlighted the various issues O’Neil addresses with benevolence administration such as pastoral involvement, qualifications of benevolence ministry leaders, compassion, confidentiality and accountability. This article also made available as a free resource a copy of a Benevolence Policy found in O’Neil’s book (used by permission).
