A 100-Day Plan That's Practical, Realistic, and Actually Works

You see the problems in your church, and you truly believe it could be better. Not perfect, but healthier. If you want more for your church but aren't quite sure how to get there, 100 Days to a Healthier Church was written for you. It teaches you how to:

  • Identify your church's current level of health using the "Church Health Continuum"
  • Make big changes through small nudges rather than giant leaps
  • Grow your strengths and tackle your weaknesses one at a time
  • After years of trial and error, pastor and author Karl Vaters developed a tested and proven 15-week process that's manageable, adaptable, and effective. It won't fix everything overnight, but it will help you figure out what to do next. Great for individual pastors, perfect for church leadership teams!

    Seven accessible and flexible Bible studies in 2 Corinthians by Gary Millar.

    Welcome to messy church. Really messy church. Corinth was the ancient world's equivalent of a modern, thriving, multicultural city. And when Paul preached the gospel, and a church was born, it very quicky got complicated. Open immorality, false teaching and a sense of pride and arrogance were just the start. And in the middle of it all, Paul strives to teach, love, rebuke and restore this troubling and troubled congregation to the true path of humble gospel-hearted faith and service.

    Like us, the Corinthian Christians struggled to struggle and preferred to prosper. Ungrateful and arrogant, they needed to hear some hard truths that Paul sets out in this deeply personal letter. But Paul also reveals here his heart for Christ's people--a heart filled with the true love of Jesus for his headstrong, wayward "children".

    For Paul, gospel ministry is what we all do. It is walking with, speaking for, and serving Jesus in all of life--and so this letter is written for all of us. 2 Corinthians takes us through how to live by faith as broken people in our broken world. It provides the key to embracing our weakness and living in the strength which God himself supplies.

    For anyone who longs to experience God in the thick of life's demands, Sara Hagerty's Adore offers a simple, soul-nourishing practice for engaging with God in the middle minutes of your day.

    None of us signed up for a conventional experience with the unconventional God, yet too often the spiritual life can become routine, dare we say, even boring.

    In Adore, Sara Hagerty gives us all permission to admit "I barely know You, God," and with this honest admission, to scoot a little nearer to this familiar stranger. Adoration is the simple practice Sara discovered for starting where you are, and letting the grit of your day greet the beauty of God's presence.

    Adoration is for the woman who feels frenzied and fearful in the middle minutes of her day. It is a simple practice for 7:37 a.m. when the children are waking and the dryer is already humming but also for the 12:17 p.m. lunch break and for 5:53 p.m. while stuck in traffic.

    Adoration is the place where we put how we feel in front of God's Word, and watch what happens to our insides. It's what you were made for. Join Sara in this soul-stirring journey through thirty attributes of God which you can walk through at your own pace. Learn how the simple habit of adoration--in the middle minutes of your day--can help you see God with fresh eyes, and talk to Him right there. Experience a new way of engaging with God in your everyday. Adore will show you how.

    Adorning the Dark Thoughts on Community Calling & the Mystery of Making

    From the bestselling author of The Wingfeather Saga and award-winning musician and storyteller, Andrew Peterson.
    Christianity Today, The Gospel Coalition, WORLD Magazine each named Adorning the Dark as one of their books of the year.

    Making something beautiful in a broken world can be harrowing work, and it can't be done alone.

    Over the last twenty years, Andrew Peterson has performed thousands of concerts, published four novels, released ten albums, taught college and seminary classes on writing, founded a nonprofit ministry for Christians in the arts, and executive-produced a film--all in a belief that God calls us to proclaim the gospel and the coming kingdom using whatever gifts are at our disposal. He's stumbled along the way, made mistake after mistake, and yet has continually encountered the grace of God through an encouraging family, a Christ-centered community of artists in the church, and the power of truth, beauty, and goodness in Scripture and the arts.

    While there are many books about writing, none deal first-hand with the intersection of songwriting, storytelling, and vocation, along with nuts-and-bolts exploration of the great mystery of creativity. In Adorning the Dark, Andrew describes six principles for the writing life:

  • serving the work
  • serving the audience
  • selectivity
  • discernment
  • discipline
  • and community

  • Through stories from his own journey, Andrew shows how these principles are not merely helpful for writers and artists, but for anyone interested in imitating the way the Creator interacts with his creation.

    This book is both a memoir of Andrew's journey and a handbook for artists, written in the hope that his story will provide encouragement to others stumbling along in pursuit of a calling to adorn the dark with the light of Christ.

    Seasoned pastor and church leader Will Willimon excels at creating thought-provoking, accessible books for working pastors and seminarians. In Aging, he takes a theologically rich look at numerous aspects of growing old.

    Drawing on Scripture, literature, current research, and his experiences as an aging adult, Willimon reflects on aging as a spiritual journey. He explores the challenging realties as well as the rewarding joys of growing old and shows pastors how to help their congregants grow old gracefully
    and in good Christian hope. Willimon also offers practical advice on helping church members as they encounter retirement, aging, caring for the aging, loss, bereavement, and finding faith in the last quarter of life. This eloquent, delightfully Christian perspective on aging will be of interest to all who care for aging souls--not only pastors but also chaplains and other ministers in hospitals, hospices, and extended care facilities.

    About the Series

    Pastors are called to help people navigate the profound mysteries of being human, from birth to death and everything in between. This series, edited by leading pastoral theologian Jason Byassee, provides pastors and pastors-in-training with rich theological reflection on the various seasons that make up a human life, helping them minister with greater wisdom and joy.
