Leader resources

One of the primary responsibilities of the pastors, elders, and staff of any church is to equip the leaders and people of their church to serve Jesus. To help in this endeavor we have collected a group of resources (books, mp3s, DVDs, etc) for our ministry and small group leaders to use. 

If you have any questions, please contact the church office.

  • John wimber teachings

    John Wimber, leader of the Vineyard movement in his lifetime, impacted the lives of thousands across the globe – and was used by God to renew the spiritual life of the 20th and 21st century Church. Wimber was passionate about equipping people for ministry. His most well-known book is called “Power Healing,” and it contains the simple message that God wants to use ordinary people to touch the lives of others who are sick or in need. He also wrote books about evangelism, hearing from God, dealing with suffering, and spiritual growth. Wimber taught classes at Fuller Seminary, most notably a course in the early '80s called “Signs, Wonders, and Church Growth.” This class was famous and somewhat controversial. Many people experienced the present day work of the Spirit for the first time in this class.


    We have access to many teachings from John Wimber ranging from topics on Healing, Spiritual Warfare, Spiritual Gifts, and Signs and Wonders and Church Growth.

  • Northpoint Small Group Studies

    We highly recommend these studies from Northpoint Church. They are set up in a way that you can give them to everyone in your group ahead of time. This way they can look at the text, questions, as well as study notes to prepare for your weekly discussion if they would like to. It also gives them a passage of Scripture for their own devotional time.  In addition, the studies are crafted in a way that really encourage your group members to share about their life and how the passage is inviting them to live differently.


    Before diving into one of the studies, check out the Leader Guide to read a bit more about how the studies work!
