This is a spiritual formation model based on a six-session study of Ephesians. It identifies four ministry categories associated with the church’s primary callings (receive, relate, equip, send).

From the Publisher

Each One a Minister, a revised and expanded edition of Carter’s previous book by the same title, begins with a study of Ephesians. Carter engages the reader in discovering the meaning of church, ministry, and gifts, from the early church up to the present. As a follow-up to the Bible study, readers and study groups look at ways in which God’s gifts are practical as well as spiritual. Four ministry categories, closely connected to the congregational primary task (receive, relate, equip, send), are identified; and Scripture readings, activities, and ways to implement specific ministries are suggested. Designed to encourage individuals to discover God’s call to ministry in their own lives, Each One a Minister leads us toward practical ways to use our gifts in ministries in our congregations and in our communities. For clergy, lay leaders, study groups, and others seeking to identify and use their gifts in meaningful ways.
