Free Stuff Fridays: Gospel-Shaped Church

This week’s Free Stuff Friday is sponsored by our friends at The Good Book Company, who have been working with The Gospel Coalition on a great new resource. There will be 6 winners this week, and each of them will receive a great package of prizes.

Gospel Shaped Church is a five part curriculum that aims to help the whole congregation learn and experience what it means to have their life and ministry shaped root and branch by the Gospel. As Tim Keller and Don Carson say in the introduction: “We want churches that are called into existence by the Gospel to be shaped by the Gospel in their everyday lives.”

The first two parts of this rich and flexible DVD-driven resource are available now:

  • Gospel Shaped Worship is written and presented by Jared Wilson and looks at how the gathered worship of the church relates to the everyday worship that individual Christians are called to offer to the Lord.
  • Gospel Shaped Outreach is written and presented by Omaha-based pastor Erik Raymond and looks at how a church can remain focussed on our principle task of reaching out with the Gospel of grace to others.

Gospel Shaped Outreach

The resources are not simplistic “how to” programs—they are deeply biblical and theological explorations of what God calls us to be through the Gospel message—but expressed in a very accessible way, so that your church can join in a journey of exploration and growth together.

We have three copies of the Gospel Shaped Worship Leader’s Kit and three copies of the Gospel Shaped Outreach Leader’s Kit to give away to six winners. Each Leader’s kit contains a DVD, a Leader’s Guide, a copy of the participant handbook, a quickstart guide and access to downloadable material.

In addition, for the disappointed but still eager, The Good Book Company are offering the Leader kits to regular Challies.com readers at a 40% discount off the list price. Simply follow the link, and use the code ChalliesGSC at the checkout (offer expires on the last day of June 2015).

Giveaway Rules: You may enter one time. As soon as the winners have been chosen, all names and addresses will be immediately and permanently erased. Winners will be notified by email. The giveaway closes Saturday at noon.

    Young Man, Don’t Even Make that First Sports Bet

    It’s impossible to avoid the advertising and impossible to miss the claims. Sports are great, they say, but do you know what makes them even better? Adding a little wager. Sports are exciting, they say, but even more exciting when you’ve got a bit of money riding on them. So why not enjoy them all…

    It’s Not a Life of Ease

    You can’t read the New Testament and fail to understand that the Christian life was never meant to be a life of ease. Each of us will encounter adversity and adversaries, and each of us will have to wage war against our fearsome foes— the world, the flesh, and the devil. Then, each of us…
