  • Presence Matters : A 40-Day Journey Into The Relationship Between Faith, Sc


    Join a movement of safe adults looking to be empowered and equipped through trauma-informed care. Learn through real-life examples, Scripture, bite-sized trauma principles and questions for personal or group reflection.

    God is calling us to engage in His healing work — rebuilding, restoring, reconciling and entering into the lives of vulnerable children as a safe presence. This resource will unpack spiritual principles and scientific findings on the topic of trauma. Compiled by a team of dedicated practitioners, these are actual examples of how wise interventions turned stories around. A perfect gift for anyone who connects with children with a trauma background — classroom teacher, foster parent, coach, neighbor, volunteer or grandparent — these insights will equip adults with practical tools and wisdom.

    Chapters cover relationships, the past, our felt needs, regulation, feeling safe, the relationship between connection and correction, and the power of presence. What is our role in healing? How do our own histories factor into our interactions with children? What do we do with feelings triggered by someone else’s behavior? What are first steps we can take when a child is melting down? Find the answers to these and other questions as you learn the rhythm of a trauma-informed life.

  • Perseverance Workbook : Praying Through Lifes Challenges


    An eight-week, video-based Bible study on the Book of Nehemiah, Perseverance follows the journey Nehemiah embarked upon when God instructed him to rebuild the destroyed walls around Jerusalem. Each week, author Donna Pyle leads women through portions of Nehemiah to help them gain a better understanding of how – like Nehemiah, an ordinary man who accomplished an extraordinary feat – they, too, can persevere through life’s challenges.

    Using this workbook, each weekly video is accompanied by five days of homework to encourage women to dive deeper into specific portions of Nehemiah. Participants will walk away from this study with the ultimate message that prayer is a vital tool in discerning God’s plan and that God alone accomplishes victories in our lives.

  • Witness Of Preaching


    This is a newly revised edition of one of the standard introductory preaching textbooks on the market today. Beginning with a solid theological basis, veteran preacher and best-selling author Thomas G. Long offers a practical, step-by-step guide to writing a sermon. Long centers his approach around the biblical concept of witness. To be a preacher, Long posits, is to be a witness to God’s work in the world-one who sees before speaking, one whose task is to “tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about what is seen.”

    This updated edition freshens up language and anecdotes, contains an extensive new analysis of the use of multimedia and its impact on preaching, and adds a completely new chapter on plagiarism in preaching. Included for the first time are four complete sermons, with Long’s commentary and analysis. The sermons were written and originally preached by Barbara Brown Taylor, Cleophus J. LaRue. Ginger Gaines-Cirelli, and Edmund Steimle.

    With this third edition, The Witness of Preaching reaffirms itself as the essential resource for seminary students as well as new and experienced preachers.

  • Successful Small Groups


    In Matthew 28:18-20 Jesus makes the mission of the church abundantly clear: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations . . .”

    But how do you reach a twenty-first-century society filled with diverse backgrounds and varying levels of religious interest? And how can you expect to grow the body of Christ when only half of your own congregation regularly attends services?

    The answer may be simpler than you think: involve and empower the laity in small group ministry.

    Kurt W. Johnson not only provides the tools for organizing and leading successful small groups, but also explores the biblical and historical foundations for small group ministry. In this practical guide Johnson illustrates the proven effectiveness that small groups have for both nurturing the spirituality of current church members and leading friends, neighbors, coworkers, and others to a saving relationship with Christ.

    Do you want to fulfill Jesus’ Great Commission? Discover how you and your church can change the world around you through the power of the Holy Spirit-one disciple at a time.

  • Ellen White On Preaching


    Preach the Word.

    The commission resounds through the ages, igniting pulpits and inspiring preachers even still. It is a sacred task that requires reverence-and preparation.

    To aid in the art of preaching, professor of preaching Mervyn A. Warren has constructed this landmark book. It includes an extensive collection of Ellen G. White’s practical wisdom on how to develop and present a powerful sermon. Whether you are a lay preacher, pastor, or evangelist, you will be inspired and instructed by these timeless principles of preaching, including how to construct strong content, organization, language, and delivery.

    You’ll discover Ellen White’s sensible and stirring words on a number of topics.

    On the need to organize sermons:
    “Some minds are more like an old curiosity shop than anything else. Many odd bits and ends of truth have been picked up and stored away there; but they know not how to present them in a clear, connected manner” (Evangelism, p. 648).

    On the most effective sermons:
    “In this age of moral darkness it will take something more than dry theory to move souls. Ministers must have a living connection with God. They must preach as though they believed what they said” (Testimonies for the Church, vol. 4, p. 447).

    On the length of sermons:
    “Let the message for this time be presented, not in long, labored discourses, but in short talks, right to the point” (Gospel Workers, pp. 167, 168).

    The good news of salvation is the best God has to offer humanity. Shouldn’t we offer our best when we present it?

  • Scary Gross And Weird Stories From The Bible


    Most of the youth in your ministry undoubtedly know the familiar, likely Bible accounts. They’ve read them dozens of times. Adam and Eve in Eden, God calling Samuel, Esther’s courage, Saul’s transformation into Paul. Of course: these are amazing highlights from the story of God’s loving relationship with his people. But what about the unfamiliar characters? The unlikely accounts? Do your students know just how offbeat and uncomfortable some parts of the Bible can be? How terrifying? How….dare we say it…weird?

    Scary, Gross , & Weird Stories from the Bible explores thirteen bizarre true stories with a can’t-look-away approach. Now, we understand very well that your teenagers probably won’t be shocked by what they find in these passages; they’ve become immune to drama and gore and the grotesque like no generation before. However, they may have never before associated any of that with God’s Word. In fact, their view of the Bible might run more along these lines: sterilized, predictable, safe, dull. So, here’s your opportunity to surprise them, shake the faith-dialogue up a bit, and guide them through some provocative, life-transforming experiences. Think of these thirteen decidedly non-safe stories as the back-alley accounts of the Bible…where God’s light often shines the brightest.

    Your students will be surprised and intrigued by the strange things (and people) in these passages-but keep in mind that strangeness isn’t the focus. We’re not helping your students encounter weirdness for weirdness’ sake (or grossness for grossness’ sake-you get the picture). Instead, the goal of these unique encounters with unexpected, unsettling stories is solely to show your teenagers more of who God is…and, well, God is pretty unexpected and unsettling. Not too mention utterly creative. So creative, in fact, that he included a lot of head-scratching, cringe-inducing, and downright disturbing stories in his Word. And each one reveals something about God, and what it means to be in an intimate, redeeming relationship with Jesus Christ.

    We’ve designed each of the thirteen studies in this resource to achieve that very purpose: to equip your students to really dig into fresh, startling Scripture passages…so they’ll be astounded by our extraordinary Creator and Savior, and moved to love and serve him with their lives.
