Recommended Books & Bible Studies
The Eternity Portfolio by Alan Godhardt
This is a practical guide to investing your money for ultimate results. I have personally met this outstanding Christian author. He is a self-made millionaire and private wealth consultant who while in his early thirties asked himself the question, “how much is enough?” Learn to purposely choose to keep only enough income to live comfortably, storing treasures in heaven with the rest by investing in an eternal portfolio. I have several of these hardcover books available for only $10 each. Let me know if you would like to purchase a copy.
Words of Encouragement by Dr. Junior Hill and Dr. Bob Pitman
A collection of encouraging sermons from two of the most loved preachers of our day. You’ll enjoy reading these messages of encouragement. I especially recommend that you read about Shamgar!
The Kingdom Focused Church by Dr. Gene Mims
A compelling image of an achievable future. Gain a better understanding of the church’s life and mission, one that is in line with the heart of God and His perfect will. This book shares everything we need to achieve our church’s full potential. It will help to aim your focus toward the nature and mission of the church.
To Live Is Christ: The Life and Ministry of Paul by Beth Moore – EXCELLENT!
This is absolutely the most compelling personal Bible study I have ever completed. I both marveled and wept as Beth Moore powerfully described the stoning death of Stephen and the “standing ovation” he received from the Christ himself while Saul, who later became the apostle Paul, looked on in approval. This study will help you understand what it really means to totally sell out to Jesus. The guide is available from LifeWay Christian Resources.
