Pastor AJ Silva is kicking off a new book ministry by launching his first book in 2017! Would you join him in making this ministry a reality?
Launching a Book Ministry!
Welcome, friends! I'm excited that you're here to check out my new ministry project. Let me tell you why I decided to begin this publishing ministry with Transformational Love: Learning to Love Like Christ.
After years of preaching and teaching God’s Word, including in communities where the gospel isn’t always readily accepted, I’ve felt called to publish book-length adaptations of some of my sermons as a ways of sharing Jesus’ transformational message of love with the greatest possible number of people.
To this end, my wife and I have decided to take the next step and invest in publishing our first book. With my friends at Sermon To Book, I also created this GiveSendGo page to ask for your prayers and your financial help. Please look at the giving levels—and incentives—on this page and consider making a gift.
The initial goal of $2,000 would cover our current expenses. Anything we receive over that amount will be used toward expenses in the continual building of a marketing platform for these books and future publications. I truly appreciate your prayers and any gift you feel led to give!
Now, let me tell you briefly why I'm passionate about publishing Transformational Love!
Transformational Love: Learning to Love Like Christ
Imagine a love so powerful it can heal your heart, reshape your life, and restore the church!
Are you ready to be completely transformed into the image of Christ Himself? Prepare yourself to see other people through God’s eyes—and with the heart of Jesus!
I’m AJ Silva, lead pastor at Oakdale Family Church of the Nazarene in Oakdale, California. In Transformational Love, I help readers navigate the ancient words underlying the pages of Scripture to reveal the many meanings of ‘love’ and the life-changing power of godly love.
In this book, you will learn:
–What the critical differences are between loving your spouse, family, friends, and God
– How to recognize the most important kind of love when you see it—and when you don’t
– Why love is supposed to hurt sometimes
– How tough love keeps us on the narrow road
– How to protect the flock from spiritual wolves
Are you ready to turn your life into one continuous, sweet-smelling offering to God?
By reading Transformational Love, you can discover what it means to love at the highest level. Learn to love God, other believers, and those outside the church the way God always intended—the way He loves you!
How You Can Help Publish Transformational Love:
Reaching the minimum number in GiveSendGo pledges will help Transformational Love get published and made globally available in both paperback and ebook format. Below are three vital actions you can take to make this book ministry a success:
ONE—Please PRAY that God would "do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!" (Ephesians 3:20–21 NIV). For we “can do all things through Christ who strengthens [us]” (Philippians 4:13 NKJV)!
TWO—Please send a personal note about Transformational Love to a friend or family member, or write a personal message about it on Facebook, Twitter, or your blog.
THREE—Please support us by donating at the highest possible level based on the reward levels described below. If you do not want a particular reward (or any), that option is available as well.
NOTE: If you choose to pledge, you must list your address information in the "Comments" box during checkout (or respond to the follow-up email that GiveSendGo sends out after you pledge). This allows us to ship your books to you!
