Newest Publication: Collateral Damage by James Carroll

We are excited to announce our next Practical Shepherding book is available for pre-order and will be released August 1, 2017 (published by Christian Focus).  Collateral Damage written by Dr. James Carroll (Foreword by Brian Croft) is an amazing story!  At twelve years old, James Carroll became the collateral damage of his pastor father’s infidelity and his parents’ divorce. With his world completely shaken and identity in shreds, he could hardly process what was happening, let alone begin regaining normality.

In Collateral Damage, Carroll, now a pastor himself, presents the specific ways in which God has worked in his life during and since that time – healing wounds, revealing sin, and restoring life. This is a highly practical book, showing the gospel as the power of God to save, to restore, and to heal.  The afterword is written by his father!

Is there a cabin in the woods where a pastor can get away for free?

Yes!  I have been staying at Clear Creek Baptist Bible College this week and they have a cottage dedicated to pastors and ministry leaders at no cost.  It is very nice!  The campus is beautiful located in the mountains in eastern Kentucky.  All you need to do is contact them and reserve it.  They want pastors either to come alone, bring their family, or bring their church staff as a retreat.  There are friendly people here and they have a great vision for training men and women for ministry both theologically and practically.
