Bride by Dr Nic Harding

BRIDE: The Church Jesus died for and is coming back for

This book is for men and women who find themselves saying ‘There must be more to church life than this’. For leaders and members who have got used to a way of being and doing church that no longer arouses wonder, awakens desire, or imparts hope. Frankly, they are bored with church. If you have ever wondered what the church could be like in the light of Jesus return, what authentic Christian community mobilised into a mission that transforms people and places might look like, this book will inspire you to live differently and be part of such a church

Reimagine Church: Clarify the Win. Escape Busyness. Fulfill Your True Purpose.

“The totally doable nuts and bolts essentials of reproducing leaders, disciples and community.

The Church has been run in much the same way for decades. We’ve run programs, services, built buildings and run conferences. But have we ever clarified the win? What would it look like if we really achieved the thing that is most on the heart of God? “

Living on the Frontline (2nd Ed.): a beginner’s guide to spiritual warfare by Nic Harding

“This beginner’s guide to spiritual warfare is essential for any Christian who wants to work together with Jesus and his church to overcome the schemes of the enemy. “

Manifesto by Nic Harding

“Nic calls believers to return to a vibrant brand of Christianity in which the words ‘church’ and ‘mission’, and ‘worship’ and ‘witness’ are inseparable realities.”

Bigger Gospel by Caesar Kalinowsli

A practical guide to growing in gospel fluency.

Have you wished you could share your Christian faith with others in a natural way without feeling awkward or preachy?
