Important News!

book boxFriends, after three long years my new book Finding Favor is finally for sale today.

It’s a really encouraging and eye-opening look into what the Bible really says about the ways Jesus blesses people.

Anyone who wants to understand the steps God will take to bless their future, their families, and their dreams in life, should read it.

Unfortunately, most Christians just don’t understand what the Bible says about God’s favor.

We can change that.

It’s been a joy to write for you all these years on this website.

But, today I come to you with my hat in hand and ask for your help:

1. Will you PRAY that God uses this book to strengthen hearts and challenge assumptions?

2. Will you buy a copy HERE so 100% of the profits made can impact kids in Haiti, Kenya, India, and Panama?

3. Will you leave a thoughtful review on Amazon when you’re done?

4. And finally, can you give a shout out online, so others can hear about the book?

I simply can’t thank you enough my friends and family – near and far – for your encouragement to keep writing. Without your prayers, comments, prods and kind words I surely would have given up.




A Special Offer For Pastors…

My staff team and I have pulled together our complete library of resources that we’ve created at CCV over the last 17 years as we’ve grown from 17 people to thousands.

These resources took YEARS to develop, and I believe they’ll be of IMMEDIATE practical use for any Pastor and/or staff member trying to lead a vibrant, growing ministry.

We’d like to give this resource library to you as a way of saying thank you when you order 3 or more copies of Finding Favor.

This resource bundle includes:

Sermons – my best sermons of the last four years (including stewardship, Easter and Christmas messages), as well as ALL our sermon series graphic images of the last five years.

All of our Kids, Student and Adult Ministries materials –events, classes, outreach, manuals, assimilation, small groups, ministry descriptions, sample emails, project plans, etc.

Staff Documents – job descriptions, coaching processes, staff policy manual, review processes, hiring, poor performance remediation, employment applications, Myers-Briggs descriptions, etc.

Church Documents – All our documented policies and procedures, by-laws, executive limitations, financial processes, facility rebranding images/process, etc.

Finding Favor Sermon Series / Church-Wide Study – The resource library will also include sermons, graphics and group study questions that you can use for a sermon series/study in your church.

I’m going to close this offer in a few weeks, so if this sounds helpful, please jump on this today. And on behalf of the kids that will be helped through your gift, I want to thank you.

Here’s how to get the resource library:

1. Order 3 copies of the book on Amazon HERE.
2. Forward your receipt to Katheryn, the resource coordinator, at kpadilla227 @
3. She’ll send you access to the folder with the resources.

Friends, it’s a privilege to serve Jesus and his church alongside each of you.
