A HIGHER CALLING:
Serving God His Leaders, and His People
"He who is greatest among you, let him serve". There are no words other than these, which fully and fairly capture the essence of the Christian mission and ministry. The noble call of service unto others is unlike any other for it requires the tried and true blend of humility, loyalty, and unselfishness.
With over two decades of success and sacrifice under the servant's mantle, Elder George Fishburne Jr. explores this worthy call and its incalculable cost of time, treasure, and talent. In A Higher Calling: Serving God, His Leaders, And His People With Excellence, he reveals biblical truths and exposes man made myths concerning issues pertinent to:
v How to determine what your 'calling' is.
v The difference between an adjutant and armor-bearer.
v Whether you possess a servant's heart.
v How leadership affects servants.
v How to merge excellence with your calling.
v How to properly care for special guests.
v How to maneuver through the many 'seasons' that God sends in our lives.
All these insights and so much more are explained in A Higher Calling: Serving God, His Leaders, And His People With Excellence. We are all servants in our own right and it is imperative that we learn of and adopt God's 'platinum card standard' for excellent service in the kingdom.
"I am convinced that the storms we have and will endure in our lives, have an intended aim. Scripture bears out that our trials are phase specific. Each phase is sculpted to teach us something about God and ourselves. Life’s difficulties do not come to destroy us because if that were God’s intent, He could simply speak our demise into existence. After all, He is God!
The troubles we experience are an invaluable teaching tool whose sole purpose is to ensure that God be glorified and that we His children grow through the process.
Additionally, these trying life experiences come also to fortify and equip the body of Christ to face and overcome the assorted fiery darts of the enemy. We must seek to continue to render effective service and allegiance to God through it all."
Bishop Kenneth Ulmer
"From the heart of a servant to those with a heart to serve.
A challenging and inspiring approach to a neglected calling: the call to serve."
Bishop Darryl S. Brister
"Jesus declares in Matthew 20:26 that if anyone desires to become great let him first become a servant. Throughout my years of serving, I have been exposed to some of the greatest servants in the kingdom, and Elder George Fishburne, Jr. is one that I will never forget because of the tangible anointing of service that is upon his life and his dedication to true service to the living God. In this great work, Elder Fishburne combines over 20 years of experience with practical knowledge and God inspired wisdom to demonstrate the art of true servant-hood. This work is a must read for all who carry the 'Servants Mantle' and who are on a quest to deepen their relationship with God and broaden their service to His leaders and His people with excellence."
Bishop Neil C. Ellis
"I am thoroughly convinced of the fact that the pathway to true greatness is routed through the often unglamorous, unappreciated, uphill winding road of servant hood! I believe that it is one of those divine paradoxes designed by God to test the very intent of our hearts and to expose those that cannot be trusted with the truly great assignments of the Kingdom. And who better to give insight and inspiration on this most important virtue of Christendom, than one who has served so faithfully and efficiently in this area for over two decades, Elder George Fishburne, Jr. I have every confidence that you will be blessed by this book, as it is the result of both divine inspiration and practical experience."
