  • “Excellent resource. We used a couple of years ago as a Life Group Study for the whole church and spent two months challenging each other on what a church member ought to look and act like. It was well received and well worth doing.”

    Alfred Borden
    Pastor in Hampden, Massachusetts
  • “We had our adult and youth Sunday School classes use I Am A Church Member as their study material. We studied two chapters per week and I preached four messages on church membership. It was well received, and some long time attending guests joined the church at the conclusion of the emphasis. Reminding us of who we are as members of the Body of Christ was a good way to begin the new year.”
