Free Kingdom Man Sermon Kit from Tony Evans

Tony Evans’ new book, Kingdom Man, has been a big seller among both men and women alike since it released earlier this year—challenging men to develop and maximize qualities of biblical manhood in their lives and to teach their sons to do the same. It’s power-packed from the very first sentence: “A kingdom man is the kind of man that when his feet hit the floor each morning the devil says, “Oh crap, he’s up!”

Now, Tony Evans has created a sermon kit for pastors who want to preach through these principles. One pastor just wrote: “We started the series last week and the response was outstanding. The outlines are very helpful and as always your analogies are the best. We are located in a small rural town in southern Illinois, but the problems we face are identical to the rest of the nation. Many have been lulled to sleep with indifference, but this series is waking up souls. Thank you.”

 Free downloads, including six sermon outlines, video illustrations, web banners, power point templates, etc. are available now from Tony Evans’ ministry. Also, look for a new book by Dr. Evans and his daughter, Chrystal Evans Hurst, Kingdom Woman, coming next year.

Fresh Air by Chris Hodges – 10 Book Giveaway

We’ve all gone through times in our lives when we feel like we need a fresh breeze to breathe new life into us—in our work, in our marriages, with our kids, in our friendships, and maybe at church. We’ve all been drawn to people who exude a kind of positive, life-giving spirit. We’ve also seen the difference between environments that exude a fresh air-like atmosphere and those that don’t. But what is it? What is that energy-giving, life-breathing force that draws you, inspires you, and empowers you to be all God made you to be? And how do we get it? How do we put the wind in our sails again, so we can get unstuck, reclaim our compass, and redirect our course? In Fresh Air, Chris Hodges, founder and senior pastor of Church of the Highlands in Birmingham, Alabama, reveals how breath—the breath of God—is the essence of life as it’s meant to be. Fueled by the breath of God, we are not only refreshed in spirit ourselves; we have the power to create a life-giving environment of freedom and joyful purpose around us. Both practical and inspiring, Fresh Air offers “breathing lessons” for those who long for a cool breeze to resuscitate their spirit, bring them closer to God, and move them toward becoming the people He made them to be.

To celebrate the launch of Fresh Air by Chris Hodges, we’re giving away 10 copies. Fill out the form below and help us spread the word about this excellent book to enter.
