Every spiritual leader must know and understand that “governments” is one of the spiritual gifts and endowments that he can receive from God.

The Gift of Governments is written to guide bishops and pastors, their activities, their various councils, their various relationships and the activities of the general government of the church. It may serve as a guideline and an advisory document for bishops, pastors and the leadership of a church in general. This book exists that bishops and all leaders may be endued with wisdom for practical leadership and management of the church.

Look around you and you will see many nations that have failed. Why did they fail? Because they mocked at the importance of government! How long will you love simplicity?

The laws, rules, regulations, stipulations and clauses outlined in this book are a collection of guidelines on the approach which a church may adopt in leading and managing its people, resources and in implementing its biblical doctrines to accomplish the vision of the church.

The author of this intriguing masterpiece, Dag Heward-Mills, intends that the book be used only as a form of advice, guidance, counsel, spiritual instruction and inputs of wisdom. All sections of this book offer non-binding counsel and advice on how a church may be administered.
