There's something truly special about old-time revivals. The sense of community and togetherness that comes from gathering with others to worship and praise unlike anything else. There's just something so timeless and meaningful about coming together to celebrate our faith, singing, testimonies, and good gospel preaching.

  • What does revival truly mean and how can it be experienced in our modern world?
  • The Church may have become stagnant in its growth and outreach efforts.
  • Identifying the root causes of potential problems is essential.
  • Hearts are set ablaze with a passion for God and a desire to share His love with others.
  • Unity in the church is a witness to the world of Christ love.

unvarnished truth

Life's Greatest Story
What is truth? A lot of people have asked that question through the ages. Unfortunately, our own opinions or desires often obscure the truth. For many, truth can become whatever we want to believe.

In much the same way as a person strips away the layers of old paint or varnish to get the original beauty of a priceless antique, this book seeks to remove all the layers of lies and opinions that clog our culture, to get to the unvarnished truth of what really matters. Through this process, we'll see that the truth in Christ becomes our greatest story.

It is time to rediscover the unvarnished truth about God and accept Jesus' challenge to share the truth with others.



Living Your Life With Influential Purpose
I believe the first step for any Christian is to know who they are in Christ. If this first step is missed or perhaps later forgotten, it can lead to a life of continual frustration, disappointment, and even depression.

Every human being on the face of the earth has an established identity - and that means you. I am not talking about your name, social security number, or even your fingerprint; I'm talking about the way you see yourself and the words you speak to yourself.  Because of the sin of mankind, we as humans tend to compare ourselves to others and speak self-defeating words in our mind. But I have great news for you: your internal negative dialogue can change! And this is what this book is all about
