Mission Shift – Kayle de Waal

“The local church is the future of Adventism . . .” 
We are living in one of the fastest periods of change in human history and the local Adventist church is in danger of becoming irrelevant, even out-dated. The local church is at the crossroads and needs to biblically reinvent itself to stay relevant in a rapidly changing world.

Keeping Connection – Zuzai Hizoke

When we describe the Christian life as a relationship with our Creator, prayer is the connection that keeps this relationship alive, healthy and growing. Drawing from the Bible, personal experience and the communal life of the church, Keeping Connection re-introduces you to the life of prayer—and its power to renew and transform your most important relationship. More than just a theory, prayer becomes practical, a vital part of your life lived with God.

Growing Young – Kara Powell, Jake Mulder & Brad Griffin

Churches are losing both members and vitality as increasing numbers of young people disengage. Based on groundbreaking research with over 250 of the nation’s leading congregations, Growing Young provides a strategy any church can use to involve and retain teenagers and young adults. It profiles innovative churches that are engaging 15- to 29-year-olds and as a result are growing–spiritually, emotionally, missionally, and numerically. Packed with both research and practical ideas, Growing Young shows pastors and ministry leaders how to position their churches to engage younger generations in a way that breathes vitality, life, and energy into the whole church.
