  • Doing Justice Together

    $17.99

    Transform your church with grace. Doing Justice Together introduces a process using Scripture as a souce of inspiration and instruction for pastors and church people to move through together, to re-envision and reorient themselves away from old, harmful habits. Beck and Hand show pastors how they can, over time, lead the congregation to become a place where racial harmony, justice, and liberation are intrinsic to the structure and life of the church. The authors lay out four pathways for discerning and correcting the unjust patterns that often sneak into church life unnoticed. They also share other leaders’ stories from a variety of settings where this process has led to healing, revival, and hope. Following the pathways, pastors and congregants will be equipped to thoughtfully transform their church. They’ll make changes with grace and care, honoring and including longtime members. And they’ll begin new ministries–perhaps reaching people they could never have imagined reaching before–becoming a fresh expression of church in their community.

  • Attentive Church Leadership

    $25.00

    The world has changed, and we minister in places we have never been in before. As the world screams for our focus, it’s essential to become attentive to God, our congregation, and our community. Kevin Ford and Jim Singleton call for attentive churches with attentive leaders to discern cultural and organizational change and pivot accordingly.

    The world has changed. The changes around us present daunting challenges to the church, and we minister in places we have never been in before. But there are no one-size-fits-all solutions because every church needs to attend to its specific situation and calling. We need to listen for not only what to do but also what not to do. In a world screaming in a thousand directions for our focus, it’s essential for us to become attentive to God, our congregation, and our community.

    Kevin Ford and Jim Singleton call for attentive churches with attentive leaders who can discern cultural and organizational change and pivot accordingly. Healthy transformation starts with a posture of attention. We need to see what God is already doing in our midst: in our own soul, in our people, and in the communities and culture around us. Chapters explore key questions that attentive leaders ask and offer case studies of attentive churches that have navigated the issues and transitions facing them. As we practice habits of attention, God leads us through the highs and lows of change into the exciting adventure of being on mission with him.

  • Untangle Your Emotions Bible Study Guide Plus Streaming Video (Student/Study Gui

    $24.99

    What does the Bible tell us about our emotions?

    Does the Bible really tell us that our emotions are untrustworthy? God made us to feel our emotions, to examine and share them–not manage or suppress them.

  • Church For Everyone

    $18.00

    Diversity is a high value for younger generations-but too often, they’re not finding it in the church.

    Emerging generations in the West are more diverse than ever-ethnically, socioeconomically, educationally, and politically. And as church attendance among younger generations declines rapidly, research shows that one of their primary sticking points is the lack of diversity in most churches.

    In Church for Everyone, pastors Dan Kreiss and Efrem Smith address this phenomenon head-on. In this research-based, theologically informed, and practical book, they explore the younger generations’ expectations and disappointments with church and hold out a vision for true diversity taken from the pages of Scripture. As experienced church leaders themselves, Kreiss and Smith share a wealth of practical experience and stories from the trenches of multiethnic ministry.

    The good news is that God has already called the church to diversity. As we seek to live out this calling in our own local contexts, we can become the demonstration of God’s love for all humanity that he has designed the church to be-and that the younger generation is so desperately looking for.

  • Improvising Church : Scripture As The Source Of Harmony, Rhythm, And Soul

    $28.00

    Plenty of books diagnose our post-Christian malaise. Here’s a dynamic solution.

    The post-Christian cultural turn is creating the conditions for a crisis of confidence in the church and in pastoral ministry. While such changes can be disruptive and disconcerting, our new cultural reality makes the present moment a uniquely exciting time to reimagine churches that bear witness to Christ. How do we move beyond cookie-cutter approaches (which may have worked in the past) to building the creative, compassionate, and incarnational churches we long for?

    Biblical scholar and accomplished jazz pianist Mark Glanville plays with a metaphor of improvisation to chart twelve themes as the key “notes” on which Christian communities play as they bear witness to God in the world today. Building on these two dynamic traditions-jazz music and Christian community-Improvising Church unfolds a biblical, practical, and inventive vision for churches seeking to receive and extend the healing of Christ.

  • Sermon On The Mount Bible Study Book Revised And Expanded With Video Access (Stu

    $34.75

    In His sweeping depiction of kingdom citizenship, Jesus utters some of the most familiar passages in all of Scripture. Most of us have only encountered the Sermon on the Mount in fragments, considering its subdivisions as complete teachings in their own right-a study on blessedness; a reflection on the Lord’s Prayer; a discussion of religious devotion, money, ambition, and relationships.

    What if we navigated these three chapters in Matthew as they were originally heard? What if we read them as one cohesive, well-ordered message, intended to challenge us to think differently about what it means to be a follower of Jesus?

    This 9-session study will give you the opportunity to do just that. Come and learn from Jesus, just as His disciples did. First released in 2014, this study is now updated with new teaching videos from Jen Wilkin.

  • Reckoning With Power

    $39.99

    History is clear: Whenever the church has aligned itself with worldly, coercive power, it ends up on the wrong side of important justice issues.

    But when the church cooperates with God’s power through his presence among the least powerful, its witness for Jesus transforms the world into a better place.

    In Reckoning with Power, David Fitch unpacks the difference between worldly power, or power over others, and God’s power, which engages not in coercion but in love, reconciliation, grace, forgiveness, and healing.

    In a world where we can see the abuses of power everywhere–in our homes, schools, governments, and churches–Fitch teaches readers how to discern power and avoid its abuses and traumas. By learning from the church’s historical pitfalls, Fitch empowers Christians to relinquish worldly power and make space for God to disrupt and transform our culture for his kingdom.

  • New Anabaptists: Practices For Emerging Communities

    $35.99

    What does it look like to be an Anabaptist community in the modern world? And why does it matter?

    A new incarnation of Anabaptism is emerging, but not where we might expect. In the United Kingdom–a post-Christendom context with little historical Anabaptist presence–Christian communities are embodying fresh expressions of Anabaptist faith and practice. In this companion to The Naked Anabaptist, author Stuart Murray identifies twelve common practices of such churches and communities that are shaped by an Anabaptist vision.

    Murray explores how these practices–which include encouraging economic radicalism in the face of rampant consumerism, truth-telling in a “post-truth” society, and accountability in an individualistic culture that knows little about the Christian story–might shape emerging Christian communities and inspire those seeking fresh expressions as cultural changes accelerate. The book concludes with three on-the-ground reports from ministry leaders pursuing this Anabaptist vision in their own post-Christendom contexts.
    ?
    The New Anabaptists provides foundational resources for followers of Jesus in many different settings as they rise to the challenge of faithful and radical discipleship in local communities.

  • Wounded Pastors : Navigating Burnout, Finding Healing, And Discerning The F

    $25.00

    Seasoned pastor Carol Howard Merritt and psychotherapist and former pastor James Fenimore join their expertise to offer validation, support, and guidance for pastors who have been hurt by the church. With wisdom that can come only from experience, they describe and define aspects of struggle and pain readers may have difficulty articulating or claiming for themselves, and they offer compassionate, informed guidance on how to find healing.

    You’re not alone in your ministry. And you don’t have to suffer in silence. Ministry is a stressful vocation, with unspoken expectations, projected anxieties, and conflicting demands. After the pandemic caused a sudden shift to online worship and factions fighting over when and how to return to in-person worship, pastors have been leaving congregational ministry at even higher rates than usual. The emotional fallout of burnout and abuse at the hands of parishioners is something pastors carry for years, whether they stay or leave the congregation.

    Seasoned pastor Carol Howard Merritt and psychotherapist and former pastor James Fenimore join their expertise to offer validation, support, and guidance for pastors who have been hurt by the church. With wisdom that can come only from experience, they describe and define aspects of struggle and pain readers may have difficulty articulating or claiming for themselves, and they offer compassionate, informed guidance on how to find healing. A systems approach to conflict sheds light on the dynamics of church conflict and how clergy can tend their own well-being amid leadership challenges. The final chapter helps readers consider their overall vocational path based on what they’ve experienced and decide whether they can remain in congregational ministry or need to pursue a different line of work.

In this way, students come to better understand the organizing principles for various views about psychology that they encounter. The book also shows how theological traditions and positions shape views on natural science, social science, and psychology.

  • Imagine The God Of Heaven Study Guide (Student/Study Guide)

    $12.99

    Millions of people around the world have reported a near-death experience. Do these accounts prove the existence of a loving God?

    Never in history, until now, have we been able to hear from so many people around the world who have been brought back from clinical death . Modern medical resuscitation and digital communication have revealed a gold mine of intriguing near-death experiences (NDEs). John Burke has spent the last three decades studying the commonalities of more than one thousand NDEs. He started his investigative journey as a skeptical agnostic when his own father was dying from cancer. After he first read these eyewitness accounts, he couldn’t help asking himself: “Could this be real evidence–even possible proof –of God’s existence?”

    Imagine the God of Heaven Study Guide is a five-session workbook, designed to be used with the companion DVD experience (sold separately). This study guide will introduce you to people from all ethnicities who experience the same loving God. Within the five sessions, which can be explored with a group or individually, John Burke discusses the character traits of this God, who has been revealed throughout history and in Scripture. God’s love, power, compassion, friendship, and guidance are closer than you could ever imagine.

  • Disabling Leadership : A Practical Theology For The Broken Body Of Christ

    $24.00

    People with disabilities are often excluded from full participation in church communities. Accessibility is a key component of the biblical ministry of reconciliation-but it’s not enough. To truly work toward reconciliation, churches must both consider the theological implications of disability and also become places where people with disabilities lead.

    Disabling Leadership presents a practical theology of disability for thoughtful church leaders and congregants. Written by practitioners and a scholar-pastor who are engaged in ministry together, this book encompasses cutting-edge theological ethics as well as stories of how such commitments are embodied in a real church community. The authors equip readers to explore key themes such as:

    *what it means to be human
    *how to understand suffering and healing
    *how churches can be welcoming and accessible communities
    *how to face common challenges and issues in resisting ableism

    Disabling Leadership moves beyond paternalistic views of disability that seek to extract “inspiration” from another’s story without engaging in the difficult work of just and dignifying relationships. When we foster genuinely inclusive leadership teams, the authors contend, our churches will be less likely to treat anyone as a “project” and will better reflect God’s love as the body of Christ.

  • Faith Beyond Youth Group

    $24.99

    Most typical youth ministries today produce nice, obedient kids who behave themselves–and then leave the church and the faith. Even those who remain struggle to extend their own faith beyond youth group. They seem like “good kids,” but their lives and decisions outside youth group aren’t oriented towards Jesus. Clearly that is not our goal. So what are we doing wrong? And how can we better serve the unique needs of the most anxious, adaptive, and diverse generation in history?

    If you’re tired of youth ministry that fails to change lives, it’s time to change youth ministry. Building on two decades of the Fuller Youth Institute’s work and incorporating extensive new research and interviews, Faith Beyond Youth Group identifies the reasons youth ministry often fails both short-term and long-term, and offers five ways adult youth leaders can cultivate character for a lifetime of growing closer to Jesus rather than drifting away. It shows leaders how to cultivate trust, model growth, teach for transformation, practice together, and make meaning so that the teenagers can become adults who hold fast to the truth 24/7 and boldly live out a robust faith in a watching world.

  • Humility Illuminated : The Biblical Path Back To Christian Character

    $22.00

    The modern church is immersed in a competitive, polarized, and status-driven society. It’s hard to have conversations about important issues when so many are defensive and unwilling to learn. Too often, Christians fall into these same traps. The health and witness of the church urgently depend on recovering an essential biblical virtue: humility.

    New Testament scholar Dennis R. Edwards illuminates humility as a, if not the, distinctive identity marker of followers of Jesus. Tracing the theme throughout Scripture, he demonstrates how true humility is grounded in submission to God and becomes manifest in all areas of life. Edwards defuses common misconceptions about humility and explores its role in Christian community, conflict, leadership, suffering, worship, and stewardship.

    As we learn from and honor the humble instead of the power-hungry, humility paradoxically empowers God’s people-including those who are often marginalized. Filled with stories from the author’s ministry experience, Humility Illuminated addresses common areas of leadership failure and how to avoid them, applies biblical texts on humility to multiethnic ministry and justice work, and issues a compelling challenge to the church.

    Biblical humility is not a tactic, and it’s not just “being nice.” It’s a revolutionary path to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.

  • Grit Dont Quit Bible Study Guide Plus Streaming Video (Student/Study Guide)

    $24.99

    As Christians, we have gotten so comfortable with singing worship songs, listening to podcasts and going to conferences about being a champion, an overcomer, a chosen child of God. But do we believe it? Do we believe there is power in perseverance to transform our lives? Until we actually believe it, we will not have the integrity and strength to stand back up.

    This five-session video Bible study will take a look at the life and ministry of Paul the Apostle as a prototype for perseverance. Paul’s grit was the genesis of his transformation–it can be ours, too. This study is about a universal fight that takes soul, body, and mind to decide to not remain on the mat of life, but to tap into the strength and power of Jesus Christ and get back up to fight again. “For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again…” (Proverbs 24:16).

  • Lights A Lovely Mile

    $27.00

    Eugene H. Peterson’s never-before-published wisdom for each season of the Christian year

    The glorious, never-dull reality of the gospel is this: Christ sets us free. All of us can be doers of the word, using the stuff of the everyday to make something to the glory of God.

    Long before his iconic paraphrased Bible translation, The Message, Eugene H. Peterson (1932-2018) faithfully preached for decades to the small congregation of Christ Our King Presbyterian Church in Bel Air, Maryland. As the seasons passed, along with the accompanying fasts and feasts, Peterson faithfully revealed ways to cultivate a robust, authentic life of faith, intimacy, obedience, and joy.

    Now you can gain new insights into Peterson’s preaching and pastoral life through this collection of his most compelling yet never-before-published sermons. Following the calendar of the church year, from the darkness of Advent to the light of Epiphany, the wilderness of Lent to the celebration of Easter, and the fire of Pentecost to the everyday glory of ordinary time, these remarkable sermons point to the eternity beyond our experience of time.

    With his trademark wit and wisdom, Peterson shows how to pursue a “long obedience in the same direction” through all the seasons, colors, and rhythms of our lives.

  • You Found Me

    $20.00

    Outreach Magazine Resource of the Year

    Many bemoan the decline of the church. We hear a steady stream of reports about how droves of people, especially younger generations, are abandoning Christianity. But new research shows that unchurched Americans are surprisingly more receptive and open to the Christian faith than is commonly assumed.

    Researcher and practitioner Rick Richardson unveils the findings of the Billy Graham Center Institute’s groundbreaking studies on the unchurched. A study of 2000 unchurched people across the country reveals that the unchurched are still remarkably open to faith conversations and the church. Even unchurched “nones” and millennials are quite receptive if they are approached in particular ways.

    In this book you will also find best practices from further research into the top ten percent of churches that most effectively reach the unchurched. People who were previously unchurched share what actually moved them to faith and Christian commitment. And the research shows that churches and organizations can be transformed to become places where conversion growth becomes the new normal.

    If people tell you “the sky is falling,” don’t believe them. In today’s troubled world, unchurched and unbelieving people are newly receptive to hearing good news. You can lead the change that will help your church reach people-who then reach others.

  • Church In An Age Of Secular Mysticisms

    $28.99

    Post-Christian life and society do not eliminate a desire for the transcendent; rather, they create an environment for new and divergent spiritual communities and practices to flourish. We are flooded with spiritualities that appeal to human desires for nonreligious personal transformation. But many fail to deliver because they fall into the trap of the self.

    In the last book of the Ministry in a Secular Age series, leading practical theologian Andrew Root shows the differences between these spiritualities and authentic Christian transformation. He explores the dangers of following or adapting these reigning mysticisms and explains why the self has become so important yet so burdened with guilt–and how we should think about both. To help us understand our confusing cultural landscape, he maps spiritualities using twenty of the best memoirs from 2015 to 2020 in which “secular mystics” promote their mystical and transformational pathways. Root concludes with a more excellent way–even a mysticism–centered on the theology of the cross that pastors and leaders can use to form their own imaginations and practices.

  • God Who Sees Bible Study Guide Plus Streaming Video (Student/Study Guide)

    $21.99

    “She gave this name to the Lord who spoke to her: ‘You are the God who sees me, ‘ for she said, ‘I have now seen the One who sees me'” (Genesis 16:13).

    There are times in our lives when we wonder if God truly sees us. When we are going through trials that seem to have no end . . . we wonder if God sees us. When we are faced with problems that seem to resurface again and again . . . we wonder if God sees us. When an illness we thought was defeated returns to impact our lives once more . . . we wonder if God sees us. And if God does see us in these situations . . . we wonder if he cares.

    In this six-session video Bible study, bestselling author Kathie Lee Gifford explores the stories of several important figures in the Bible who also wondered at times if God saw them in their plight. Through the stories of Hagar, Ruth, David, Mary of Magdala, and others, participants will discover that even when things seem to be at their worst, there is a God whose eyes are always on us, who has promised to never leave us or forsake us, and who gives us the power to do all that he has called us to do.

  • Pivot : The Priorities, Practices, And Powers That Can Transform Your Churc

    $22.99

    A practical guide to help you build a culture in your church or organization that resists abuse and cultivates goodness.

    After the release of their groundbreaking book, A Church Called Tov, which recorded the stories of abuse and toxic church cultures at some of the most prominent churches in the United States, New Testament scholar and blogger for Christianity Today Scot McKnight and Laura Barringer heard from a flood of people who had experienced similar instances of abuse. After all they’ve seen and heard, they still believe it’s possible for church cultures to be transformed from toxic to tov-from oppressive to good.

    In Pivot, Scot and Laura help churches to implement practices,establish priorities, and cultivate the Kingdom Gospel-centered qualities that form goodness cultures. Readers will find answers to the four most common questions people have about culture transformation:

    How can I transform the culture in my church or organization to make it tov?

    I believe my workplace has unhealthy values. How do I initiate change?

    How do I unleash a culture of goodness in my ministry?

    I’m not in a position of church leadership. What are some red flags that indicate a toxic culture, and what can I do if I see them?

    Pivot also includes the following practical features:

    *The “Tov tool,” a survey to help you discern your organization’s culture and to promote spiritual conversations

    *A “getting to work” section at the end of each chapter with questions and next steps for application

    Transformation is never easy. But for the sake of the next generation, we must do it.

  • Signs And Secrets Of The Messiah Bible Study Guide Plus Streaming Video (Student

    $21.99

    Are you or someone you love desperate for a miracle–a sign that God knows about your situation and is willing, ready, and available to do something about it? As witnessed through Scripture, the God who was and is and is to come has been performing miracles from the beginning of time. So, you can trust that Jesus wants to do something miraculous in your life today!

    In Signs and Secrets of the Messiah, bestselling author and teacher Rabbi Jason Sobel dives deep into Scripture, biblical culture, and ancient texts to help you better understand the truths and the power behind God’s miracles and to increase your faith that Jesus can perform miracles in your life. By taking a deeper look at Jesus’ miracles, he reveals promises for all Christ followers based on miracles throughout Scripture:

    *Jesus takes the ordinary and turns it into something extraordinary, because He wants you to live out of His overflow (He turned water into wine).

    *Jesus wants to renew you so that He can do something new in you (He revealed to Nicodemus the miracle of rebirth).

    *You can stop wandering aimlessly or feeling stuck in your current situation, but instead experience abundant life and healing (He healed the man at the Pool of Bethesda).

    *God wants to bless you abundantly so you, in turn, can bless others and sow into His kingdom (Jesus multiplied the loaves and fish).

    As you go on this journey with Rabbi Jason, a Messianic Jew, he is praying that God will lead you to new insights and breakthroughs in your life. And as God reveals Himself to you in a fresh and powerful way, you will be filled with a sense of His presence and shalom.

  • God Never Gives Up On You Bible Study Guide Plus Streaming Video (Student/Study

    $21.99

    Have you ever wondered if you’ve had one too many stumbles for God to use someone like you? Have you ever worried that you’ve made the wrong decisions in life and there is no way back for you? Have you ever questioned if God can really use you in spite of your mistakes? If so, the tale of God’s unending, unbending, unswerving grace and devotion in the story of Jacob is just what you need.

    God Never Gives Up on You is a five-session study tailor-made for the members of the “Lost Halo Society.” It’s for the strugglers among us and the fumblers within us. It’s for those who are part saint . . . and part scoundrel. It’s for those who mean well but don’t always do well. And it’s for those who could use a refresher course on how God enacts his perfect plan in this world by working through imperfect people.

    In this study, bestselling author Max Lucado will reveal how God used Jacob–the misbehaving patriarch who was strong on savvy but low on conscience–simply because God chose to use Jacob. Period. The word for such devotion? Grace. Grace came after Jacob. Grace found him in the desert. Grace protected him in exile. Grace wrestled him to the ground and blessed him. Grace led him home to Canaan.

    Jacob’s story invites us to likewise believe in a God who sticks with the unworthy and underachievers until we are safely at home.

  • Dont Look Back Bible Study Guide Plus Streaming Video (Student/Study Guide)

    $24.99

    Birthed out of her observations over the past several pandemic years, Chris is back with an exciting and powerful message that will inspire, encourage, and motivate the reader to get unstuck, and move on with their lives.

    The book addresses the overarching question: When I get stuck, how do I get unstuck and move on?

    Using the story of Lot’s wife, who turned into a pillar of salt after she looked back on the life that was behind her, Chris Caine charges the reader to not look back, because our world will never be the same, but instead to press on and move forward–even when our hearts longs for what was.

    This five session video Bible study will draw on the many ways God defines his character to us through our deep need for him, especially in seasons of great change and disruption. Christine will expose the common idols we look to before we look to God and how we can move through incredible circumstances with God as our only focus. You will hear Jesus clearly when he says, “Remember Lot’s wife” in Luke 17:32 and fixing your eyes on him, you will not look back!

  • Offensive Church : Breaking The Cycle Of Ethnic Disunity

    $22.00

    Crises around race have put the church in a defensive posture, always reacting to racial conflicts in society. But Jesus wants more. He wants Christians to play offense by discipling people into a new humanity, where we push beyond mere diversity and into a biblical vision for ethnic unity.

    Bryan Loritts calls Christians to proactively and intentionally live out the embodied reality of a people at one with one another. We play offense by practicing a robust gospel, preparing reliable leadership, and providing relational environments so that the church becomes the aroma of Christ to our culture and gains ground against the demonic foothold of racism in all its forms.

  • Centering Discipleship : A Pathway For Multiplying Spectators Into Mature D

    $20.00

    Discipleship without mission is discipleship without Christ.

    The church often lacks maturity and missional impact because discipleship is at its periphery. In order to get discipleship to the center, leaders need a locally rooted, culturally contextual discipleship pathway to tether disciples who are disciplemakers to the neighborhood or network around them.

    Pastor and discipler E. K. Strawser shows that when discipleship becomes central to your leadership and community, then discipleship becomes central to congregational mission and cultural renewal. Centering Discipleship is a gutsy practice-based guidebook for leaders who are doing the hard work of re-imagining and re-structuring their churches and communities to turn spectators into missional, mature followers of Jesus.

  • Seeing God As A Perfect Father Study Guide Plus Streaming Video (Student/Study G

    $21.99

    The renowned pastor and author A.W. Tozer once said, “What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing to us . . . the most portentous fact about any man is not what he at a given time may say or do, but what he in his heart conceives God to be like.” Our image of God shapes everything about us. It informs everything about who we are and who we are becoming.

    In Seeing God as a Perfect Father, bestselling author and pastor Louie Giglio challenges each of us to consider our perceptions and thoughts about God. When we think about him, do we imagine a ruler who demands absolute loyalty from us? Or a coach who expects us to perform up to his high expectations? Or even a virtual assistant who is always there to help us when every other option is exhausted?

    Louie invites us to consider God in a different way: as a perfect Father who wants us to live under the waterfall of his blessing. He points us to a God who is not absent or ambivalent, but available and affectionate, ready to shower us with his approval and love. He challenges us to consider:

    *How the way that we are seeing God is influencing what we feel about his character
    *How our perceptions of God’s perfection is creating misperceptions of his care for us
    *How our relationship with our earthly father is creating distance in our relationship with him
    *How our lives would be different if we truly were able to see God as a perfect father

    When we take hold of the truth that our God has spanned heaven and earth to reach us, we will no longer be defined by our past but by the love of a perfect Father. Learn how God wants us to experience his unique, unconditional love and to live in the freedom, abundance, and blessing He freely gives.

  • Resilience Factor : A Step-By-Step Guide To Catalyze An Unbreakable Team

    $18.00

    Want to unleash the “remarkable” in your team?

    The potential of a team of God-inspired, talented, committed people is boundless. But without resilience–including the savvy and skill to get up again (and again) when the going gets tough–teams simply cannot thrive or lead well. Resilience is what sets great leaders and teams apart from those that literally fall apart. It’s what’s missing when great organizations lose steam.

    Ryan T. Hartwig, Leonce B. Crump Jr., and Warren Bird have worked with team members in many kinds of churches and Christian organizations, served on numerous teams, and surfaced the best research on teams. In The Resilience Factor, they distill this wisdom into a series of practical steps that promise to both inspire and equip teams to move from floundering to flourishing.

    Filled with examples of top-performing teams, individual and group reflection questions, diagnostic tools, and team activities, The Resilience Factor promises to become the go-to resource for leaders who want to release remarkable resilience in their teams.

  • In Church As It Is In Heaven

    $22.00

    Heaven is multiethnic. Are you ready for that?

    The Bible tells us that the congregation gathered around God’s heavenly throne will be “a vast multitude from every nation, tribe, people, and language,” all singing the praises of the Lamb. God’s intention has always been to delight for all eternity in a redeemed community of ethnic diversity.

    But this diverse community shouldn’t have to wait until eternity to begin! It can be a reality in our own local churches here and now. Patterned after a worship service, In Church as It Is in Heaven gives biblical warrant for such a community and shows how multiethnic churches provide a unique apologetic for the gospel. Along the way, the authors tell the story of their own church–a majority-white congregation which is being transformed into a family that reflects the diversity of heaven.

    The multiethnic kingdom is not just a nice idea, or an abstract theory. It’s a reality–one we can enter into today.

  • Intergenerational Christian Formation

    $40.00

    “One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts.” –Psalm 145:4

    Most churches and faith communities segment their ministries by age and generation. In some congregations, people may never interact with those of other ages. But it was not always so. Throughout biblical tradition and the majority of history, communities of faith included people of all ages together in corporate worship, education, and ministry. The church was not just multigenerational; it was intergenerational, with the whole church together as one family and people of all ages learning from one another in common life.

    The process of becoming Christlike does not happen alone, and intergenerational faith communities are designed for Christian formation. All generations are gifted parts of the body, and churches need all the parts. In this comprehensive text, Holly Allen, Christine Lawton, and Cory Seibel offer a complete framework for intentional intergenerational Christian formation. They provide the theoretical foundations for intergenerationality, showing how learning and spiritual formation are better accomplished through intergenerational contexts. Then the authors give concrete guidance for intergenerational praxis on how worship, learning, community, and service can all be achieved intergenerationally. Case studies of intergenerational congregations provide models for how a culture of intergenerationality can be created in local churches.

    This second edition has been revised and updated throughout with new empirical research, intergenerational spiritual practices, and Gen Z realities, with fresh stories of intergenerational formation both in the US and around the world. Discover the riches of intergenerational ministry, and let all generations commend the works of God to one another.

  • When Church Stops Working

    $21.99

    What if the solution for the decline of today’s church isn’t more money, people, programs, innovation, and busyness?

    What if the answer is to stop and wait on God?

    In When Church Stops Working, ministry leaders Andrew Root and Blair Bertrand show how actively watching and listening for God can bring life out of death for churches in crisis today. Using clear steps and practices, they invite church leaders to stop the endless cycle of doing more and rather to simply “be” in God’s presence. They tell the story of two congregations who did this–and found new life in the process.

    When Church Stops Working distills the core themes of Root’s critically acclaimed Ministry in a Secular Age series in a more accessible form. Leaders and churchgoers who are burned out and hopeless will experience affirmation, encouragement, and empowerment as Root and Bertrand turn to the book of Acts as well as examples from contemporary congregational life to show what “active” waiting looks like and the saving grace it can hold.

  • Carry The Flame Bible Study Guide Plus Streaming Video (Student/Study Guide)

    $21.99

    Just before Jesus ascended into heaven, he gathered his followers around him and said, “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8). In this way, Jesus entrusted the “flame” of the gospel to these men and women and commissioned them to carry it to the world. He promised they would receive supernatural power to help them accomplish this task.

    The book of Acts records that these followers of Christ took up the challenge and set the world ablaze with the fire of the gospel. But this begs the question . . . who were these people? In reality, most were ordinary men and women just like you and me. They had not received hands-on training with Jesus like the twelve disciples had received. They had not been specially trained in ministry or teaching or serving. They were simply men and women who made themselves available to God and followed the direction of the Holy Spirit as he prompted them to act–and forever changed the world.

    In Carry the Flame, bestselling author and pastor Jim Cymbala reveals that God is still seeking ordinary men and women–not just pastors or ministry leaders–who will make themselves available to him, follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, and accomplish extraordinary things in this world. He draws on examples of ordinary people in Acts such as Ananias, Philip, and the 120 who waited in the Upper Room–as well as modern-day testimonies–to show how God can use anyone and everyone who simply submits to him and obeys his leading. As you go through this study, you will be challenged and encouraged to likewise take that first step of faith for God . . . and see where it leads.

  • Next Gen Faith

    $18.99

    When the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth? (Luke 18:8)

    Jesus’s question is one that should bother all Christians. Increasing numbers of people don’t go to church. Only 4 percent of those born between 1998 and 2013 have a biblical worldview. The rest don’t believe in the Bible, absolute moral truth, or a loving, all-powerful Creator. They don’t even believe in the concept of sin.

    We have failed. We have not taken to heart the biblical admonishment to pass on our faith from one generation to the next.

    Yet youth pastor Jeff Grenell believes that once American teens and young adults discover that God is even more amazing than Stranger Things, “they will be hooked.”

    He notes, “Our world is familiar with the supernatural, but the church is foreign to it. If this changes in the church today, we may have one of the best apologetic tools to reach this generation because the supernatural is in the DNA of the church and its message. Most American teenagers and youth culture are drawn to the spectacular and the spiritual.”

    Jeff has written Next Gen Faith: 12 Spiritual Practices for Youth in an effort to reverse the godless trend among the next generations. Written in the vein of the classic Christian book The Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster, Next Gen Faith is designed to provide key steps for spiritual formation for both Christian adults who work with youth as well as teens and young adults themselves.

  • Questions Jesus Asked

    $18.99

    Why are you terrified? What do you live for? Who do you say that I am?

    Jesus was fond of asking questions, many of which cut right to the heart of what it means to be human. Why are you terrified? What do you live for? Who do you say that I am? In Questions Jesus Asked, author Magrey deVega explores six of the most provocative questions Jesus posed to others and guides us in answering them for ourselves.

    Asking these questions takes courage. Not only do they reveal what Jesus really cares about, they open a window into our hearts. We all have questions for God, but growth happens when we turn things around and ask what Jesus wants to know about us. When we dare to raise them, these questions bring us a fuller appreciation for the wisdom, power, and presence of God in our lives. Are you willing to step out in faith? Are you ready to answer the questions Jesus asked?

    Components for this six-week study include a book, comprehensive Leader Guide, and DVD/Video sessions featuring Magrey deVega.

  • Pastor Jesus Is Enough

    $16.99

    In Pastor, Jesus Is Enough, Jeremy Writebol invites pastors to hear the words of the risen Jesus in the seven letters within Revelation 2-3:

    *Pastors love Jesus most
    *Pastors suffer
    *Pastors teach and tell the truth
    *Pastors become like Jesus
    *Pastors abide in Jesus
    *Pastors find their value in Jesus
    *Pastors repent

    The exhortations in Revelation 2-3 are directed to churches. But they also exhort pastors. In these letters, Jesus draws near to pastors–whether hurting or straying–and reminds them of his sufficiency. In these warnings and promises, Jesus has hard words for pastors. But they are words of life. Most of all, Jesus urges pastors to keep their focus on him.

    Being enough is exhausting. But pastor, the good news is that you cannot be enough. Because only Jesus is enough.

  • Luke Study Guide Plus Streaming Video (Student/Study Guide)

    $24.99

    Lisa says, What I’m drawn to most in Luke’s account of the gospel is its humanity, the consistent theme that the Living Hope of Jesus Christ is for everyone-Jews and Greeks, men and women, rich and poor. There’s no one who exists beyond the compassionate reach of our Messiah.

    Luke’s gospel account is a literary masterpiece, but it doesn’t celebrate the elite. Instead, it’s like the biblical version of Shakespeare whose main characters are paperback kind of people like lepers, prostitutes, and tax collectors who were absolutely stunned by the compassion Jesus extended toward them despite their cultural status as outcasts. This book proves that the pretense of perfection is overrated and certainly isn’t a prerequisite for a relationship with God. All twenty-four chapters present real people in real need of a real Savior. And while not everyone will be saved, Luke reminds us that anyone can be saved!

    In this eight-session video Bible study, Bible teacher Lisa Harper exposes the utter humanity and compassion of Jesus shared by Luke, defined consistently and overtly in the original Greek, splagnitzomai, otherwise known as gut-level compassion. Dive deep into the well of perhaps the most common-man exposition of what a gift Jesus is in this new Beautiful Word Series study. This study guide has everything you need for a full Bible study experience, including:

    *The study guide itself-with discussion and reflection questions, video notes, and a leader’s guide.

  • Body Of Praise

    $26.99

    Do our physical bodies really matter in corporate worship? Isn’t our soul the most important part of us? Aren’t our bodies, at best, negligible to worship and, at worst, a hindrance? The answer to this last question is categorically no, as Christians have attested throughout history and across the global church. The purpose of the body instead is to offer to God in worship what only it can offer–and what must be offered to God.

    By drawing on the wisdom of the Bible, church history, and theology, and by taking advantage of the unique insights of the arts and sciences, ethics, and spiritual formation, a respected theologian and pastor argues in this book that there is something for our physical bodies to do that decisively forms Christlikeness in us within the context of corporate worship. What we do with our postures, gestures, and movements in worship matter. How our senses of sight, scent, sound, taste, and touch are involved in worship matter. How our spontaneous and prescriptive activities form us in worship matter. All of it matters to faithful and fulsome worship for the sake of a body that is fully alive in the praise of God.

    In this helpful companion piece to the bestselling book, Fault Lines, Voddie Baucham explains the sinister worldview behind the social justice movement and Critical Race Theory–revealing how it already has infiltrated some seminaries, leading to internal denominational conflict, canceled careers, and lost livelihoods. Like a fault line, it threatens American culture in general, and the evangelical church in particular.

    The culture war is now in close combat territory. Whether you’re a layperson who has woken up in a strange new world and wonders how to engage sensitively and effectively in the conversation on race or a pastor who is grappling with a polarized congregation, this participants’ guide offers the clarity and understanding you need to either hold your ground, or reclaim it.

    Ideal for solo or group study, this guide is meant to be used in conjunction with the video series or book by the same name. Using it will give you:

    *an opportunity to learn and reflect on how and why the current movement to enact social justice directly opposes biblical justice.

  • Awe Of God Bible Study Guide Plus Streaming Video (Student/Study Guide)

    $21.99

    What if you were told of a hidden virtue that is the key to all of life? It unlocks the purpose of your existence and attracts the presence, protection, and providence of your Creator. It is the root of all noble character, the foundation of all happiness, and provides the needed adjustments to all inharmonious circumstances you may face. To firmly embrace this virtue will lengthen your life, procure you good health, ensure success and safety, eliminate lack, and guarantee a noble legacy.

    If presented with these statements, most would sneer and say no such virtue exists. Yet every promise above was written by one of the wisest men to ever live. Even more astounding, he wrote these words under the inspiration of our Creator. However, prior to his departure from this life, he fell from the bliss he scribed. He became wise in his own eyes and deemed it no longer necessary to heed the wisdom of this virtue. He lost his way and eventually fell to the depths of a bitter cynic. Life became meaningless to him.

    The good news is that this man’s story doesn’t end in the depths of despondency. He eventually returned to life’s most important virtue. We don’t know how many months or even years he spent writing his dismal book, but his final chapter gives a glimpse into his recovery. He begins by writing seven times in one form or another, “Remember your Creator,” with his final words being: “Here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind” (Ecclesiastes 12:13 NIV).

    King Solomon, the author of these words, didn’t fully realize the value of godly fear, even though he taught it under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit! Prior to his fall, godly fear wasn’t his treasure, or his delight; it wasn’t an immovable foundation for his motives and actions. It was only after stumbling, experiencing folly, and finally recovering that he more fully grasped the magnitude of its power.

    In The Awe of God, bestselling author and pastor John Bevere reveals how embracing godly fear empowers us to remain under submission to God’s truth and, in so doing, keeps us on the path of life. He explores more than forty distinct promises in Scripture that are given to those who embrace this virtue–rewards such as holiness, wisdom, eternal legacy, confidence, fearlessness, happiness, and security. And he shows how learning to approach God in this entirely new way–through holy fear–allows us to discover a deeper relationship wi

  • Gideon Bible Study Book With Video Access

    $24.99

    When we hear the name Gideon, most of us think about his 300 soldiers or the fleece he laid out under the evening sky. But Gideon’s story is so much bigger than that-bigger than any one man and his mark on Israel’s history. Like everything else in the Bible, this is a story about God and His people. His love for them, as well as His strength operating in spite of their weakness-even through their weakness. And because God’s people includes you and me, Gideon’s story is also about us-our lives, our doubts, our struggles, and our possibilities as believers. From a state of fear, weakness, and insecurity, Gideon emerged as Israel’s hero, filled with God’s presence and His passion for deliverance. This 7-session study by Priscilla Shirer will encourage you to recognize your weakness as the key that the Lord gives you to unlock the full experience of His strength in your life. In what ways do you feel insufficient? Those places create the greatest opportunity to experience the sufficiency of God. Instead of ignoring, neglecting, or trying to escape your weaknesses, see them as the gifts that they are, given specifically and strategically by God to unlock the door of God’s strength.

  • Godbearing Life : The Art Of Soul Tending For Youth Ministry

    $26.99

    A generation ago, The Godbearing Life charted a new course for youth ministry to fuel the faith both of young people and the adults who minister with them. It is founded on the truth that we are all Godbearers to one another, and therefore youth ministry is more about people than programs. Youth ministry is ministry that invites young people into deep soul work and spiritual friendships.

    Like the original, The Godbearing Life, Revised Edition is conversationally written, grounded in scripture, and grows out of all three authors’ own pastoral experience. The update addresses the profound shifts in society and ministry over the past twenty-five years-from the interconnection of technology to the professionalization of youth ministry. This book reimagines the means of Godbearing youth ministry in a post-pandemic digital age in the twenty-first century while holding on to the fact that young people are continuously transformed by the message.

    The Godbearing Life, Revised Edition offers a new generation of church leaders the same depth of spiritual wisdom that shifted the ground for youth workers two decades ago. The basic message is this: young people need adults who practice faith alongside them.

  • Solo Pastor : Understanding And Overcoming The Challenges Of Leading A Chur

  • Parenting Study Guide Plus Streaming Video (Student/Study Guide)

    $21.99

    For parents there exists a question that is always hovering in the background. Are we doing it right? Then just when we feel like we may be doing it right in one season, the season changes. They outgrow their shoes and their beds and we wonder at times if maybe they’re outgrowing us. Eventually hormones flip the script. The question that hovered in the background for the first eleven or twelve years is suddenly front and center. We no longer have the luxury of wondering if we’re doing it right. There are daily reminders that more than likely we’re not. Eventually our kids assure us we’re doing it wrong because their best friend’s parents are doing it right. And, of course, their best friends are assuring their parents they’re doing it wrong as well.

    So, are you doing it right?

    It’s a terrifying question. It’s terrifying because while we all come equipped with a rearview mirror, we don’t have a reverse. We can look back and see what we should have done differently, but we can’t back up and do it differently. Our mistakes are a permanent part of our parenting stories. Worse, our mistakes are a permanent part of our children’s childhoods!

    In this six-session video study, Andy and Sandra Stanley will actually suggest an it… the it they’re convinced makes all the difference. Because if you don’t hit pause long enough to consider the direction in which you are parenting, you may wake up one day to the realization that you parented in the wrong direction. By wrong I mean, you parented in a direction you would not have chosen to parent had you stopped long enough to choose. The direction we choose, consciously or unconsciously, will in some way determine our children’s destinations–emotionally, relationally, spiritually, as well as academically and professionally. You owe it to them to choose it ahead of time.

    Parenting is complicated. You want to get it right. To do what you have to do to determine your it. And that’s what this video study is about.

  • Pray First Study Guide Plus Streaming Video (Student/Study Guide)

    $21.99

    Prayer is the lifeblood of the Christian faith, but many of us struggle to make it part of our daily lives. We’re intimidated, uncertain, and embarrassed about how to talk to God.

  • Ruth Bible Study Book Updated Edition With Video Access

    $21.99

    Most of us like a good rags-to-riches story, especially one that includes a bit of intrigue and a moving tale of love. We can easily get lost in a narrative where, at the beginning of the story, heartache reigned, but it was soon replaced by joy. Perhaps we’re drawn to these tales because they not only provide an escape, but hope.

    Many of us struggle through seasons of bitterness, tears, and loss, wondering if there could ever be a happy ending to our stories. The story of Ruth affirms that yes, there is hope. However, it’s not found in a happy ending scribed by a novelist’s pen, but in the power and protection of a sovereign God who never takes His eyes off of us for even a moment.

    In this 7-session study from Kelly Minter, we’ll examine Ruth’s journey of unbearable loss, redeeming love, and divine legacy. We’ll see how God proves Himself faithful as the One who rescues, revives, and restores. First released in 2009, this study is now updated with fresh content and new teaching videos from Kelly.

  • Equipamiento Para Todos Nivel – (Spanish)

    $10.99

    Todas las palabras tienen un significado que las define. Sin embargo, suelen estar sujetas a la interpretacion de las personas. Cuando se las analiza de manera superficial o se las adapta a conceptos contemporaneos y culturales, corren el riesgo de perder su sentido original y su dimension. Algunos pocos ejemplos lo demuestran. Iglesia es una palabra que se suele usar para referirse a toda clase de sistema religioso que dictamina las reglas de vida que las personas deben seguir. Reino es una palabra que se suele asociar a la grandeza de un monarca, a quien se lo considera casi como el dueo del pais al que representa. Autoridad es una palabra que se relaciona con orden y justicia, o abuso y corrupcion. El hecho es que estas tres palabras se interpretaron de maneras tan variadas segun la epoca, que muchas veces su significado real se tergiverso.

    En la actualidad, como interpretan los cristianos las palabras iglesia, reino y autoridad? Las comprenden desde un punto de vista cultural, religioso, tradicional o popular? Sin duda, la unica manera de percibir estas palabras y lo que ellas representan en la dimension correcta es verlas como Dios las ve; y los creyentes tienen ese privilegio.

    Iglesia, Reino y autoridad, son los tres grandes temas tratados en Equipamiento para todos, Nivel 2, Seguridad. Independientemente de los conceptos erroneos que hayan existido, es imprescindible establecer lo que Dios dice acerca de estos temas de tanta relevancia.

    Este libro presenta una perspectiva espiritual reveladora que elevara tu mirada. Ver la Iglesia, el Reino y la autoridad como el Seor lo hace, traera seguridad a tu vida.

    Equipping for Everyone – Level 2 Security

    All words have a meaning that defines them. However, they are often subject to people’s interpretation. When they are superficially analyzed or adapted to contemporary and cultural concepts, they run the risk of losing their original meaning and dimension. A few examples prove it. Church is a word that is often used to refer to all kinds of religious system that dictates the rules of life that people must follow. Kingdom is a word that is usually associated with the greatness of a monarch, who is considered almost as the owner of the country he represents. Authority is a word that relates to order and justice, or abuse and corruption. The fact is that these three words were interpreted in such varied ways according to the time, that many times their real meaning was misrepresented.

  • Spiritual Warfare : For The Care Of Souls

    $19.99

    Jesus Christ is the light that no darkness can overcome.

    Spiritual warfare isn’t always obvious. It’s normally not scary or spooky; it’s usually rather mundane. Yet it’s real and always miraculous.

    In Spiritual Warfare, Harold Ristau shows how faithful spiritual warfare isn’t about secret methods and rituals. Rather, for the care of souls, pastors already have all they need in God’s word. The Spirit’s gifts equip Christians for whatever challenges await them in ministry–even fighting against the wiles of the devil. Spiritual Warfare helps pastors inform, prepare, and equip the saints for the battle. The good fight is fought in prayer and worship. As the church preaches the forgiveness of sins, the darkness is pierced with the light of Christ and those in bondage are freed.

    Where have all the disciples gone?

    There is a missing force in Christianity today. Its absence has led to weak believers, disintegrating families, ineffective churches, and a decaying culture. Without it we lack what we need to fully live as heaven’s representatives on earth.

    That missing force is discipleship. The result is powerless Christians attending powerless churches, having a powerless presence in the world. The power, authority, abundance, victory, and impact God has promised will come about only when we understand and align ourselves with His definition of discipleship.
