ABOUT THE BOOK: This book, The Mission of the Holy Spirit, grew out of a series of messages given by Pastor Wade Graber in 1995. Now fifteen years after the initial vision, paradigm shift, and some personal spiritual growth, Wade's hope in penning The Mission of the Holy Spirit is for Christians to more fully understand the presence and ministry of God the Holy Spirit and for unbelievers to receive the indwelling Spirit. The message of the book is quite simple. You are the mission field of God the Holy Spirit. He has numerous things He wants to do in your life that affect your present and your eternity. The Holy Spirit wants to transform you into Christ's image and glorify the Father and the Son. This book and the accompanying songs require uninterrupted worship and meditation in order to experience the richest reality of the Holy Spirit. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Wade C. Graber is a born-again believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. He began preaching in 1975 when he had a shoulder-shaking encounter with God at the age of 18. Wade has been pastoring since 1976. He holds a bachelor of arts degree in Bible with a minor in Greek from Sterling College and a master of divinity degree from Central Baptist Theological Seminary. Married to Peggy in 1977, the couple has two children, Evan and Megan. In addition to all of the joys and challenges of pastoral ministry, the Grabers have been blessed to experience missions in various countries including Mexico and Liberia. Evangelistic outreaches are a priority for Graber, but co-laboring with church family members and other organizations have extended his missions efforts into construction, medical, pastor training, orphanages, education, church planting, and other endeavors for the Kingdom.
