Creativity: Art, the Artist & the Church by: CALEB PALMER

God is really big. He has purposes and plans that are so far beyond our comprehension that to delve into and discover them will take billions of people the rest of eternity. To somehow think we can out-create or out-dream that is to place ourselves on much too high a plane. It was attempted at Babel. It was what got Adam into the mess where he found himself. On the other end of the spectrum, our God is one who desires to be known. He longs for His people, His children, to explore the deepest parts of Him. As we draw close to Him, our eyes can be opened to the magnitude of creative possibilities that are contained in the word GOD. Isn’t that what worship is? That is what art is. That is what creativity is. In Creativity: Art, the Artist & the Church we explore the state of art in the church, the biblical foundations for creativity, and patterns for how to see the local church released to be a creative forerunner on the earth.

Pursuing a Culture of Discipleship: Becoming a Church That Follows Jesus Together on His Mission by: DOUG KREIGHBAUM

The call upon God’s people has always been to live as a demonstration of His gospel as well as to declare His gospel message to the world around us. A lack of understanding about walking in a culture of discipleship among God’s people seriously hinders that call. It results in people self-identifying as Christians but not following Jesus or seeking to live according to His commands. Therefore we need a revolution of discipleship among His people.

NATURALLY SUPERNATURAL by: DAVID R. HUDSON

This book attempts to be practical and foundational “straight talk” about these gifts, in the hope that all of us can edify the church. This isn’t an exhaustive book on this wonderful topic. It is my attempt to be practical and helpful for those who need a little prophetic encouragement from a pastoral heart. As God is continually giving revelation and experience from His word to His Church, there are many more prophets who can add to the pages of this book and communicate these things better than I can.

Relational Theology by: Dough Kreighbaum

Relational Theology addresses these topics with straightforward and applicable principles from God’s Word. Jesus prayed in John 17:22 that the relational harmony that exists in the Trinity would be lived out among His people. This book is designed to stir us to capture the important relational elements found in God’s Word that is often missing in the church today. If God’s people will endeavor to embrace and walk in the truths contained in this book, we will go a long way in becoming the testimony in the earth that God desires and the world needs.
