Discover A Proven Approach to Raising Your Church's Evangelistic Temperature Evangelism. It's one of the highest values in the church. So why do so few churches put real time, money, and effort into it? Maybe it's because we don't understand the evangelistic potential of the church well enough to get excited about it.

'Regardless of where you're starting from, I'm confident that in the power of the Holy Spirit, you can take significant steps toward making your ministry more outwardly focused and evangelistically fruitful.' Get ready for a revolution in how your people view and do evangelism.

La apacible y poderosa voz de Dios Audiobook

La apacible y poderosa voz de Dios

Author: Bill Hybels, Tony Santiago Narrator: Bill Hybels, Tony Santiago Release Date: January 2011

In the tenth chapter of the Gospel of John, Jesus proclaims that His sheep know His voice and He heeds them. What does this interactivity between the human and the divine sound like? Bestselling author and Pastor Bill Hybels shares many personal examples of hearing God 'whisper' -- through his second grade teacher and at summer camp when he was 17 years old -- through adulthood when he turned from following his father's footsteps and instead followed the Father's footsteps. In the early ministry years in a movie theatre to the existing campus in Barrington, Hybels shares that whispers matter -- especially God whispers. Hybels shares the importance in recognizing those God whispers, and how to discern whether or not it is God who is speaking to our inner hearts. Hybels challenges readers to be attentive in this process and to walk in obedience, knowing without a doubt that God's whispers are always worth listening to.

The Power of a Whisper Audiobook

The Power of a Whisper

Author: Bill Hybels, Scott Brick Narrator: Bill Hybels, Scott Brick Release Date: July 2010

'Without a hint of exaggeration,' says Bill Hybels in this unabridged audio download, 'the ability to discern divine direction has saved me from a life of sure boredom and self-destruction. God's well-timed words have redirected my path, rescued me from temptation and re-energized me during some of my deepest moments of despair.' In The Power of a Whisper, vision is cast for what life can look like when God's followers choose to hear from heaven as they navigate life on earth. Whispers that arbitrate key decisions, nudges that rescue from dark nights of the soul, promptings that spur on growth, urgings that come by way of another person, inspiration that opens once-glazed-over eyes to the terrible plight people face in this world---through firsthand accounts spanning fifty-seven years of life, more than thirty of which have been spent in the trenches of ministry, Hybels promotes passion in Christ-followers' hearts for being wide open to hearing from God, and for getting gutsier about doing exactly what he says to do.

Too Busy Not to Pray Audiobook

Too Busy Not to Pray

Author: Bill Hybels Narrator: Chris Fabry Release Date: March 2009

For the past twenty years Too Busy Not to Pray has stood as a classic on prayer, helping Christians all over the world slow down to draw near to God. During those years, the world certainly hasn't slowed down. If anything, the pace, intensity and number of distractions have only increased. Brokenness and pain seem to have increased as well, with news of civil war, poverty, broken families and sex-trafficking touching us daily. The urgent need for prayer is clear, but busyness still keeps many of us from finding time to pray. Two truths haven't changed in twenty years: God is the same powerful, just, holy God he's always been; and true prayer--prayer that changes us and allows us to participate in God's work in the world--can't happen on the fly. So Bill Hybels once again offers us his practical, time-tested ideas on slowing down to pray. Revised throughout and including a new introduction and new chapter on prayer and compassion for the world, this twentieth-anniversary edition of Too Busy Not to Pray calls both young and old to make prayer a priority, and broadens our vision for what our eternal, powerful God does when his people slow down to pray
