Video: Calvary Distinctives by Pastor Sandy Adams of Calvary Chapel Stone Mountain

We usually post a recommend book but this month we are posting a recommend video. And if we were like every other church in the community why take up space? We’d be better off closing our doors and throwing in with someone else. But there are distinctives – some real differences. This is a special recorded message from pastor Sandy Adams he shares we’re a special expression of God’s heart, and you need to know what makes us unique. There’s much Calvary has in common with other churches, but there are also some real differences that set us apart, and give us our own identity.

Find out Calvary Chapels approach to God’s grace, to people, to children, to worship, to the Scriptures, to church doctrine, to the Holy Spirit, to membership, to ministry, to money, to church government, and to the rapture. The one thing we really want to be is genuine. Our part is real faith. Now that you know who we are and what we value – I hope you’ll become apart of this church family.

Book: Dynamic Spiritual Leadership (Leading Like Paul) by J. Oswald Sanders

Do you aspire to be a spiritual leader? The need for talented, vigorous leaders in the church cannot be overemphasized. In this study of Paul’s life, J. Oswald Sanders highlights the qualities that made Paul the great leader he was: his pioneering spirit, his powerful communication skills, his life of fervent prayer, his wholehearted devotion to Jesus Christ, and his exalted view of God. Let this proven classic be your guide for leadership, and watch how God works through you to do great things for His glory.

Dr. John Oswald Sanders left a promising law practice in his native New Zealand to serve as an instructor and administrator at the Bible College of New Zealand. Later he become general director of Overseas Missionary Fellowship (then known as China Inland Mission) in the 1950s and 1960s, and he was instrumental in beginning many new missions projects throughout East Asia. J. Oswald Sanders not only wrote about leadership but he lived it out.

In this study of Paul’s life we find an inspiring example of what one person, wholly surrendered to God and committed to God’s people, can achieve by simply following Jesus Christ. And even though Paul was merely human, he was a leader with weaknesses just like ours. Paul’s triumphs, as well as his failures, provide valuable lessons in overcoming any obstacle in ministry as we desire to serve Jesus Christ. This book is a great read about what qualities make a great leader and you’ll also find your vocabulary grow too!
