“Jesus is preparing a new work with His church. He is readying men and women of God who are willing to do whatever it takes to draw near to Him and to follow Him. The day is coming when He will build through us, where all that we do will truly flow from the King himself. In such a time, His church will be a force for good as nothing else. As the world grows increasingly dark, His people will shine like never before, not because of our good works, but because of Him. This is the call upon the Kingdom church.”
Aimed at both His people and His church, This book reveals Jesus’ desire to move in a mighty way upon the earth. It is both a study and a call of what it is to live in His Kingdom and to follow Him. Broken down step by step with the Bible, it examines what Jesus said about the Kingdom of God and the implications of that for our lives and our churches.

Pastoral leadership and church communications just got easier.
Pastor Email Power helps you connect with members of your family and flock through electronic communication. Pastors today have very little spare time amidst meetings, sermon prep, counseling, and pastoral care. Unfortunately, the element of a pastor’s duties that suffers most from this increased workload is personal connection with his congregation.
This book seeks to solve that problem by providing a streamlined, effective way for pastors to communicate with their congregation in a loving, pastoral way. Pastor Email Power is comprised of 72 letter prompts designed to help you say exactly what you mean in every kind of situation.
Each letter prompt builds off of a 5-point foundation: Greeting, Connection, Empathy, Needs, and Hope
Our prayer is that each prompt aids you in crafting a heartfelt letter that meets people where they are and gives them hope moving forward—no matter what!
Pastor Email Power is great for church leadership and pastoral counseling—a must-have when it comes to pastoral resources!

Christian Church history produced a number of men whose lives reflect the tenacious fervor of lions. In Living Like Lions each man challenges us to rise above the contemporary definitions of masculinity and embrace God’s goodness and godliness. These short Christian biographies reveal the tenacity, strength and love necessary to lead in the home, community, and church. Watch as a monk stands face-to-face against the emperor of Rome – a bishop defies armed soldiers – an artist resurrects hope for the lost.
Living Like Lions is perfect for both casual reading and small group study. Learn about each of the following spiritual giants:
Augustine of Hippo
Ambrose of Milan
John R. Mott
Johann Sebastian Bach
Dr. Francis Collins
“It’s a biblical truth that as iron sharpens iron so does one man sharpen another. Like a blacksmith with his anvil, Duren strikes eachpage harder than the last. He takes the very marrow of these men andsaturates each page, paragraph, and sentence.
All of mankind has something God-given living inside them, waiting to beignited, waiting to be awoken. Living Like Lions doesn’t just seek tokeep us accountable for our sins and successes– it seeks to wake us up. It seeks for us to live a grand adventure.” – Melissa Perea, author of Seeds of Hate and Dismantled Sun
“When one imagines a lion, a majestic animal supremely in control comes tomind. With Christ we can be in control. We can find our role and moveforward in love just as these 20 men did, as so artfully described by J. R. Duren. I highly recommend this book to inspire you to do justthat.” – Doug Cornelius, author
“With so manyexamples of lives poorly lived out there, it is so refreshing toglimpse the inner workings of 20 lives that made a difference. Although many are familiar names, as I moved through the book I began torealize how little I knew about several, to say nothing of those I hadpreviously not known.”
It is not simply areader’s digest synopsis of the individual, but the art of the book isin J.R.’s relentless bringing forward of the key points as challengesinto our lives.” – Tom Trotter, missions paster
From the Author
I believe there is a strong, decisive man in each one of us. Years of mistakes and regret bury that strength and decisiveness. So, we fight our way through life feeling like something just isn’t right; that something is broken.
I don’t want to live like that, and I know most men don’t want to live like that. Each man’s in Living Like Lions pushes us to uncover the masculinity we’ve lost.
My hope for you is that Living Like Lions makes you question everything you know about being a man. Not a questioning that makes you doubt who you are, but a questioning that digs down into your identity and uncovers the strength and leadership you’ve always wanted to find.
Be aimless no longer. Think for yourself. Lead. Be strong. Love Jesus. That’s the message of Living Like Lions.
