Imagine Video Series

Coming Fall 2017!

Imagine a different world where Jesus' followers were making disciples who were making disciples. What hope and healing might we be able to offer the world in a place like that?
The Imagine Video Series, coming Fall 2017, seeks to help lead you through discussions and ideas of what it looks like to be a faithfully committed follower of Christ and experience deep knowing and caring with the watching world.

Spirit-Empowered Faith

A Spirit-empowered Faith is a faith that is demonstrable, observable, and only possible with the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. The ultimate goal of our faith journey is to relate to the person of Jesus, as His Spirit enables Great Commission living empowered by Great Commandment love. Our world needs men and women who are living as Spirit-empowered disciples and making disciples who in turn make disciples. 

Follow the link to learn more about the 40 outcomes of a Spirit-empowered disciple and how to grow in them.

Reboot Leaders

The Crisis of Leadership in the 21st Century church has very little to do with what goes on inside our churches, and everything to do with what is going on inside of those who lead it.  The response to this leadership crisis starts with asking 3 questions: 
Who am I becoming?
How am I relating?
What am I achieving?

Resources for Churches and Staff

Praying with Jesus

Scripture tells us that Jesus lives to make intercession; He lives to pray! If you listen closely, you’ll hear what He is praying for: the burdens of your heart, the needs of your life—the Savior is praying for you. Jesus talks to God on our behalf, but is He praying alone? What would it mean if we joined Jesus in prayer?
Praying with Jesus includes articles from some of the most notable authors of our day:
Sammy Rodriguez, Priscilla Shirer, Ronnie Floyd, Dave Butts, Stormie Omartian, Jack Hayford, Josh McDowell, Mark Batterson, Jeff Bogue, Doug Stringer, George Wood, Harry Jackson, Mark Williams, Steve Gaines, Jared Pingleton, Jedd Medefind, Michael Lewis, Mark Dance, Joe Battaglia, Steve Hawthorne, Jeremy Story, and Alton Garrison

The Experiential Gospel of John

The Experiential Gospel of John is designed to engage followers of Jesus as they impart both the gospel and live out a relevant, daily faith (1 Thessalonians 2:7-8). This resource is unique; it is unlike any of the resources you've likely read before because the exercises in each chapter were written with the specific goal of engaging you in a Spirit-empowered faith. These exercises are created to move beyond seeking to simply know or study God's truth and move toward actually experiencing it. Why is this important? It's only an experiential, Spirit-empowered faith that can change our lives and the lives of those around us.

The Great Commandment Principle Book

How relevant is the modern day church to hurting and needy people?
How effective are today’s followers of Jesus in meeting the real needs of people?

The Great Commandment Principle reveals a first-century truth for a twentyfirst-century culture— a simple but profound way of relating to God and others that will restore great relevance to the church while deepening your personal relationships with others. A community of Jesus-followers should be a center of healing and wholeness:
  • A community where broken people can find healing.
  • A community where people experience Great Commandment love and are never alone.
  • A community where Jesus followers actually do the Bible.
  • A community where transformation is real and witness is a lifestyle.

5 Assumptions About God 

Who is God? Is He angry and aggressive? Maybe He’s just interested in punishing people. Does He care for the weak, sick, and protect children from bad dreams? Or perhaps, He’s a genie who gives us everything we want if we believe in Him enough. Does God really hate homosexuals and Muslims? What is God like? How does He view me? What does He want me to do? 

To understand the mind of God we must first understand His heart. Suppose God actually loves us and wants what is best for us. How might this affect our understanding of God and our openness to follow Him?

Relational Foundations

This book is designed to challenge believers to pursue renewed relevance in both their personal lives and their ministries. This course offers fresh insights into the heart of God and the relational nature of the Christian faith, insights which must be grasped if the body of Christ is to have any significant impact within today’s increasingly secular, postmodern culture.
