Are you stuck in your comfort zone? Are you searching for something greater? While it is easy to get comfortable with going about your business throughout the week and then showing up at church for an hour on Sunday, you are called to much more. Greatness, growth, and significance in the kingdom of God is found on the path of service. In this practical and inspiring book, Nelson Searcy motivates readers to take the next step on their journey toward maturity in Christ. As Searcy explains, if you're not serving, you're not growing. Whether you're already committed to multiple ministries or have just started attending church, he provides the tools you need to get connected through service.
The Greatness Principle, a perfect companion to Connect, is designed specifically with the individual believer in mind. Priced right for small groups and church-wide campaigns, this little book packs a wealth of practical insight and inspired ideas that will energize church members and have them clamoring to volunteer their talents for the sake of the kingdom.
