Dalton Jenkins (right), senior pastor of Bethel Temple of Praise (Yonkers, N.Y.), has published a book entitled Kingdom People Living by Kingdom Principles: A Holistic Approach to the Call of Missions. It can be ordered from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other booksellers, and is available for both the Kindle and Nook.
The description reads:
“We do not have to travel to some foreign country to locate the mission field. Right here, literally in our backyards, the world has come to us. The church’s basic mission is to preach the gospel of the kingdom of God; this message has social and political aspects to its application. This is the fundamental responsibility of the church.
“This message is holistic and affects the total person. As the church develops a comprehensive and practical understanding of missions, this will propel Christians to act out their missional call. The challenge as to how to be truly missional requires those people considered to be disciples to engage their communities in their everyday lives.
“To capture the full essence of missions, this book introduces a process called strategic evangelism. This process serves to raise awareness by helping to clarify the nature of the structures and practices of the church relating to its missional focus, to develop a better awareness of local missions, and to introduce a process that will assist people to live out the mission by engaging their communities.”
Rev. Jenkins recently completed his doctor of ministry degree. He also holds an accounting degree, and two master’s degrees (master of divinity and master of ministries in pastoral counseling). He has pastored the UB church in Yonkers since 2004. He is also a member of the Higher Education Leadership Team and of the Huntington University Board of Trustees.
