Your pastors have published several resources to help you with your personal growth in your walk with Christ.
Nurture Faith: Five Minute Meditations to Strengthen your Walk with Christ by Dr. Doug Hood and his son, Nathanael Cameron Hood (2022). "In this book, you will see evidence of the personal spirituality and literary talents of both the father and son," says Dr. Michael B. Brown.
Confronting Life's Challenges: Sermons on the Struggles We Face by Dr. Doug Hood, Rev. Greg Rapier, and Mr. John Randolph (c. 2020). Dr. Tom Tewell says, "These sermons are practical to the core. They do not shy away from the tough questions and perplexing issues which confront us each day."
