Resolving Everyday Conflict ♦ This course offers a practical, biblical, and concise guide to peacemaking in everyday life. With the proven advice in this book, authors Ken Sande and Kevin Johnson show you how to achieve not only a cease-fire but also unity and harmony. Facilitated by Lennie Burke & Mike Mailman
Leading Missional Small Groups ♦ Discover the Wesleyan way to form missional communities and congregations.

Cathy Thacker

Wiersbe ♦ En Llamados a ser siervos a Dios el autor nos explica, en su estilo afectuoso y familiar, que hacer y como evaluar lo que estamos hacienda cuando buscamos server a Dios, un servicio que el llama "la tarea mas importante del mundo."
