Underground Church : A Living Example Of The Church In Its Most Potent Form
What If the Church Truly Empowered People to Engage in God’s Mission?
Something extraordinary has been happening in Tampa, Florida. A new expression of the church has been quietly growing. It’s something of an experiment, but over the last ten years the church has been validating its ideas with sustained and growing results. At The Underground, being the church is not focused around a weekly gathering or church programs. It’s about empowering individuals to respond to God’s call to ministry and mission, especially to the poor and disadvantaged in our midst.
While many churches talk about discerning calling and engaging in mission, very few are structured to make this their ministry focus. The Underground Church is a new vision for the church rooted in its biblical mission to share the love of God and serve the poor. Sanders explores how to make structural changes, how to think about leadership, how to fund ministries, and how to truly engage people in God’s mission. Filled with creative insights, he explains what it means to center the mission of the church around the callings of individuals to outward ministry – whether that involves leading Bible studies in the workplace, feeding the homeless, or working to free women and children from sex trafficking.
This book will both tell the inspiring story of a church that is rethinking what church looks like while also outlining and uncovering the principles that transfer for every church and Christian community that hopes for more. It’s the true story of a 10-year experiment that unpacks the possibilities of a church structured and streamlined for mission.

God I Never Knew$16.00Add to cart
Who is the Holy Spirit, and exactly what does He do?
Many people find the Holy Spirit mysterious, confounding-even controversial. Why is the third person in the Godhead-the one Jesus said would be the believer’s ultimate source of truth and comfort-the source of such confusion?
In The God I Never Knew, Robert Morris clearly explains that the Holy Spirit’s chief desire is for relationship–to offer us the encouragement and guidance of a trusted friend. This insightful and biblically-based book moves beyond theological jargon, religious tradition, and cultural misconceptions to clarify what the Holy Spirit promises to do in your life:
* Dwell within you
* Be your helper
* Guide you into all truth
* Comfort you
* Pray for you
* Show you things to come
* Never leave you
It’s time to experience the Holy Spirit in a fresh, new way-to meet the God you may have never known.

Women Of The Bible Speak$25.99Add to cart
The women of the Bible lived timeless stories–by examining them, we can understand what it means to be a woman of faith.
People unfamiliar with Scripture often assume that women play a small, secondary role in the Bible. But in fact, they were central figures in numerous Biblical tales. It was Queen Esther’s bravery at a vital point in history which saved her entire people. The Bible contains warriors like Jael, judges like Deborah, and prophets like Miriam. The first person to witness Jesus’ resurrection was Mary Magdalene, who promptly became the first Christian evangelist, eager to share the news which would change the world forever.
In The Women of the Bible Speak, Fox News Channel’s Shannon Bream opens up the lives of sixteen of these Biblical women, arranging them into pairs and contrasting their journeys. In pairing their stories, Shannon helps us reflect not only on the meaning of each individual’s life, but on how they relate to each other and to us.
From the shepherdesses of ancient Israel who helped raise the future leaders of the people of God, to the courageous early Christians, the narrative of the Bible offers us many vivid and fascinating female characters. In their lives we can see common struggles to resist bitterness, despair, and pride, and to instead find their true selves in faith, hope, and love. In studying these heroes of the faith, we can find wisdom and warnings for how to better navigate our own faith journeys.
The Women of the Bible Speak outlines the lessons we can take from the valor of Esther, the hope of Hannah, the audacity of Rahab, and the faith of Mary. In broadening each woman’s individual story, Shannon offers us a deeper understanding of each, and wisdom and insights that can transform our own lives today.
