Free E-Book: Ready For Revival
God desires to send revival — to our lives, our churches and schools, our cities and our nations. The question is: are we ready for it? Ready For Revival is a free e-book for those who desire to be used by God. It examines ten passions that are evident in the lives of those who are ready. This book is great for individual use or for group study.
Top 30 Reading List
One of the greatest ways to grow in your walk with the Lord is to be a reader. Through the writings of great Christian leaders, both those who are active today and those who have gone before us, we have the opportunity to be challenged, encouraged and discipled by the best.
To help young leaders figure out what books to start with, we surveyed dozens of leaders around the country, asking them for a list of books that have proven to help fuel discipleship. This “Top 30” list is a compilation of books that received the highest recommendations from the most leaders. Click here to download this amazing list.
