Spiritual Gifts for Ministry and the Marketplace
God’s Power Tools for Every Believer
God equipped His people to thrive both inside and outside the church walls. For too long, the Church has tried to do by the flesh what can only be accomplished by the Spirit. Gifts of the Spirit are the power tools given to believers to build up the body of Christ and bring in the harvest of souls—not only through ministry within the local church, but also in the marketplace.
Through Scripture and contemporary examples, this book will show what spiritual gifts are, what they are for, and how they were designed to build God’s kingdom. Lay down the hand tools you’ve been using and pick up some that are turbocharged!
A Clean Heart
What does it mean to be pure in this “hook-up” generation? If I’ve already lost my virginity, can I make a fresh start? As their lives intertwine, three students at Bethel College in Newton, Kansas face these issues head-on.
Sophomore Katherine Bennett learns that moral purity is more than doing and saying the right things or avoiding what’s wrong. As she surrenders her heart to God, He uses her to touch an agnostic teacher and a rebellious freshman.
Katherine’s non-Christian roommate, Paige Harrison, finds that an unguarded lifestyle can have painful consequences. Through a crisis pregnancy, she learns to forgive the past and finds true love.
Paige’s ex-boyfriend, football star Kevin Todd, wrestles with the guilt of a less-than-stellar moral record. Through Katherine’s friendship, he learns about the “clean slate” Christ offers those who trust in Him. Will he return to his first love, or find a way to Katherine’s heart?

Can an out-of-state arborist salvage the apple trees that have been in her family for decades? And what is it about this handsome stranger that so draws Cassie and her sons to him?
