This 4 volume set, together with 16 CD's, is the "elder orientation" for pastors/elders in our association. Each volume covers 2 of the 8 core values of Great Commission Churches, as well as a section of the GCC Statement of Faith. The GCLI is divided into lessons with practical life exercises that effectively equip men for ministry. After completing the GCLI, a man will have a thorough orientation of the key issues that an elder needs to know in leading the local church.

The War Agains Your Soul

The War Against Your Soul, Rick Whitney

"A godly man will not go as far as he may, lest he go further than he should." With this in mind, here is the warning:

  • Whatever weakens your reason.
  • Whatever impairs the tenderness of your conscience.
  • Whatever obscures your sense of God.
  • Whatever increases the authority of your body over your mind.
  • Whatever takes away your relish for spiritual things...

That to you is sin, no matter how innocent it is in itself. This book looks at some of these dangerous Whatevers.
