Safe and Secure Church Kit
$399.00
Protect your congregation with a compassionate approach to church safety and security.

Now more than ever, churches are recognizing the need for having a team, policies, and procedures for keeping people within their church safe. Without expert advice, it can be easy to overlook some of the most obvious and most common safety and security situations when developing a plan.

The Safe and Secure Church kit is a comprehensive planning and training tool that helps you assess, identify, and plan for safety and security concerns, from the most basic need such as a fall on the playground, to the most extreme, like an active shooter. Plus, you’ll learn how to design a team with a ministry approach so that you’re ready to respond with care and confidence.

    How to Wow Your Church Guests
    $9.99
    By Mark L. Waltz

    Have you ever asked the question, "Why aren't visitors coming back to our church?" The truth is: as much as we want new people to visit and stay at our church, we don't always show it. Traditions and routines can get in the way of reaching new people who come through your doors. People who don't yet know they matter to God. People who may be the most important people in the building on any given Sunday.

    Inside the pages of How to Wow Your Church Guests, you'll discover 101 simple things that send big messages to your guests. Each one will help you consider your church's welcome quotient. Written in a practical, actionable style, even if you only embrace a few of these ideas you'll immediately improve the quality of guest services in your organization.

    Order one for each leader and influencer in your church. By working together, you can put your best foot forward. Who knows…you might even convince Mr. and Mrs. Jones to give up their coveted parking spot under that shady oak tree!

    Why Nobody Wants to Go to Church Anymore (hard cover)
    Was: $24.99

    Limited Edition Hard Cover Version

    By Thom and Joani Schultz

    The book that will forever change the way you think about church.

    The statistics are clear: The American church is in decline. People are leaving in astounding numbers, with no sign of a turnaround. And despite church leaders'’ best efforts to stem the tide, more than 80 percent of people are finding something better to do on Sunday mornings.

    Why? Is there hope for the future of the church?

    In this groundbreaking new book, Thom and Joani Schultz expose the church practices that are driving people away and thwarting spiritual growth. Yet they also reveal what can bring them back--—the four keys to reaching the "unchurched" and the "dechurched."

    The bad news? Your church is probably missing the mark when it comes to the core of Christianity. The good news? There'’s hope. Lots of it.

    The truth may surprise you...…but it can also transform your ministry into something truly irresistible.

    Sermons Reimagined
    $14.99
    By Rick Chromey

    People today want to connect to God, they crave spirituality. But inside the walls of the church they are getting a 30- to 50-minute spiritual monologue. Simply put, sermons do not communicate effectively in a YouTube, Twitter, Google world. We just can’t keep doing business –preaching--as usual in this fluid culture.

    Sermons Reimagined will teach you easy, practical ways to reach today’s audiences, who:
  • Consumes sound bites, not sermons
  • Processes information visually, not verbally
  • Applies concepts through experiences and interaction, not passivity and lectures


  • It's time to reimagine the sermon. This book will show you how.
