    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.

    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?

    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.

    Practical Stuff for Pastors: Leading Change
    $6.99
    Ever tried to replace the organ with a keyboard? Change the service time by thirty minutes? Introduce a new ministry? Retire an old one?

    Pastors learn quickly that change often meets resistance in church. Even small changes can be hard to make when church members are familiar with the usual way of doing things. But change is necessary as new visions arise and communities evolve.

    Leading Change provides guidance for how to lead a church through both big and small changes, including:
  • When to Change
  • Communicating Vision
  • Responding to Resistance


  • After surveying hundreds of pastors, asking them what they wish they’d learned in seminary but didn’t, "practical stuff" was the overwhelming answer.

    Practical Stuff for Pastors is a series of how-to guides dedicated to topics like how to manage a team, keep a building running, defuse conflicts, and more.

    Full of tips, recommendations, and strategies to equip pastors for running a church on the days between Sundays, these handbooks are valuable tools pastors will reference again and again.
