God's plan for the church calls for each member of the Body of Christ to play a vital role. Sometimes we think that serving God is an obligation, a duty, and that it isn't meant to be enjoyable. The truth is, though, that God wants us to find joy and fulfillment when we serve. That happens when we serve in a role that matches who God created us to be.

In this updated edition of Serving from the Heart, church members will take a 6-week journey of self-discovery as they learn more about how the Body of Christ is intended to function, and what that means to each person.

This study (also workable in 7 Sunday School sessions) leads adults through assessing their spiritual gifts, talents and abilities, resources, individual style, dreams and experiences...all adding up to an enhanced capacity to serve God and neighbor.

Also available are a Leader Guide and DVD.

He left everything to follow his teacher and possessed a passion that would change the world. That's one way to describe Peter. Here's another: poor, uneducated, quick-tempered, and full of doubts and fears. Doesn't even sound like the same man.

And that's the point of Simon Peter, a new book and six-week adult Bible study by Adam Hamilton. Peter was just an ordinary guy who heard and followed God's extraordinary call. Discover how you, too, have special gifts, talents, and abilities that God can use to make a difference today. In addition to the Leader Guide and DVD components for adult studies, corresponding youth and children's resources, sold separately, can be used to create a churchwide study.

Chapters Include:

  1. The Call of the Fisherman
  2. Walking with Jesus in the Storm
  3. Bedrock or Stumbling Block?
  4. "I Will Not Deny You"
  5. From Cowardice to Courage

Imagine announcing a new series of sermons and seeing worship attendance increase by 1,000 people on the first Sunday of the new series. Or consider a pastor developing sermon plans two to three years out. What kind of pastor sits in a bar with a notepad just looking for ideas for sermons? Or has as his aim to preach the best prepared, best researched sermons his congregation has ever heard? All of these and more explain part of the reason the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection has grown from four people to over 10,000 in just thirteen years.

In Unleashing the Word, Adam Hamilton helps pastors and church leaders consider the purpose, planning, and execution of excellent preaching. He offers detailed descriptions of the sermon planning, writing and preaching process behind one of the fastest growing churches in the United States. He includes numerous personal anecdotes and enough sermon ideas to keep the average pastor busy for years! Finally, after you have read how sermons are planned and prepared at the Church of the Resurrection you can watch the included DVD which features four full-length sermons and other resources to help you apply what you've read in the book. If you only buy one book on preaching this year, this is the book you must buy!

Praise for Unleashing the Word:

"I wish I had read this book early in my thirty-eight year pastoral ministry. If so, I would have done a better job." --J. Ellsworth Kalas, Professor of Preaching, Asbury Theological Seminary.

"Unleashing the Word will be around a long time to help preachers preach the Word with power and conviction!" --Tyrone Gordon, Senior Pastor, St. Luke "Community" UMC, Dallas

"Hamilton offers a goldmine of practical advice...Pastor-preachers will benefit greatly by adopting and adapting Hamilton's approach." --O. Wesley Allen, Jr. Assistant Professor of Homiletics, Lexington Theological Seminary

"Anyone wanting to discover something about the art of preaching and its relationship to the life of a thriving congregation would be hard put to find any better reading resource." --Charles Killian, Professor of Preaching and Storytelling, Asbury Theological Seminary
