  • A Stained Beauty coverA Stained Beauty


    Jesus declared that he would build His church and for 2,000 years His followers have carried out His commission—sometimes well, sometimes poorly. From ancient times to modern, from urban centers to rural cornfields, churches—with or without buildings—have substantively impacted North America and beyond. The church, then and now, has been marked by beauty and brokenness, moments of glory and shame. Two church leaders, John Stumbo and David Hearn, believe the church has much to learn from our origins and much still to contribute to our world.

  • In the Midst coverIn the Midst: Treasures from the Dark

  • Who We Are In Christ

    What does the Bible say about our identity in Christ? Who does the Word say we are? In this document created for a small retreat held in February 2017, John has compiled this list of scriptural references. Who We Are In Christ is a powerful inventory of biblical affirmations revealing our true identity in Jesus Christ. Though a small segment of the many truths defining who we have become through faith in God’s Son, it serves remind us who and Whose we are.
