Since 2005, we’ve seen an unprecedented number of church planters called by God to serve in the Canadian province of Quebec, as well as a new openness to the gospel among the people. This is hugely significant because Quebec and the Quebecois people represent the largest unreached people group in North America. (For comparison, consider that there are more Christians per-capita in Egypt than in Quebec.) Quebec’s unique religious and cultural history provide both daunting challenges and exciting opportunities for the spread of the gospel. Building on the legacy of the twentieth-century missionaries who first brought the gospel into Quebec, our twenty-first-century movement seeks to continue this work by seeing Quebec completely saturated and transformed by the good news of Jesus’ finished work through community evangelism, leadership development, missional church planting, and church revitalization.–“I mention the Stegners when I talk to people about what living a healthy family life on mission looks like. And this health has continuously overflowed into our missional communities, churches, church plants, and replants. Brian and Severine have grown to become a solid pastoral presence for all key-leaders within our movement. His executive coordination is an important element for the significant growth we are experiencing. Having him full time is a game changer for what God is doing in Quebec.” – Norton Lages, Director, Mission Quebec–“Brian has an incredible ability to make vision come to life – and often better than it looked in the plans. His seemingly inexhaustible reserves of creativity and knowledge have significantly helped move things forward in Quebec and Canada. His gift mix is irreplaceable and unique. Can’t imagine not working with him!” – Dwight Bernier, Network Director, Acts 29 Canada

Your next conversation could impact someone’s life forever
Hard conversations challenge everyone. Some people make every effort to avoid them altogether; others dive in enthusiastically, damaging relationships in the process. A solid middle ground is difficult to find–especially for those who want to make sure they’re following a biblical model for these tough encounters.
Lori Roeleveld firmly believes that the dialogues everyday Christians delay are often the very channels God wants to use to deepen relationships and transform lives. And she is eager to address the challenges they pose and to guide readers to meaningful conversations that rely on the wisdom of the Bible rather than the world.
In The Art of Hard Conversations, Roeleveld provides motivation, inspiration, and practical, readily applied skills to make those tricky talks more effective. Through funny, vulnerable personal stories, sound biblical teaching, and sections of tips and assignments to practice, the principles here are guaranteed to increase the confidence and competence of Christians in discussing sensitive topics of every kind.
Full-time FindingJoy.net blogger, speaker, marketer, podcaster, and single mom of seven, Rachel Marie Martin presents a wake-up call to those of us who have found ourselves stuck in the ‘I’m just a mom’ phase of life.
Yes, this book is about motherhood . . . but really, this book is about finding yourself again and following your passion WHILE being a mom. Inspired by her incredible story, Rachel’s words always come straight from the gut; they are visceral, real and soul searching. She challenges you to find the courage to break cycles, to take off masks and not let fear take control. This book is a balance of tough, “no excuses” ways of approaching life, while allowing breathing room and grace for yourself, for as we all know, life and mothering are not perfect.
After inspiring and conversing with thousands of women, Rachel has surmised there is always a reason to hope, to move forward and a reason to dare doing what you thought was impossible. (Yes, including what you are skeptical of accomplishing right now). She encourages you to say yes to your dreams and stop waiting for “someday” or “one day” or “when something happens”.
Prepare to change the way you think about yourself and your life. This will be a book you read over and over armed with a highlighter in one hand and a journal for introspection in another.
In this true, compelling account of perseverance and hope from Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll’s assistant, a young journalist walks on to a top-ranked USC football team and, guided by his faith, shares God’s love, launching him on an unexpected journey with an amazing outcome.
Had anyone told Ben Malcolmson that he’d someday be a wide receiver on the national champion USC football team–after not playing football since an unfortunate fifth-grade Pop Warner experience–he would have called them crazy. As a reporter for The Daily Trojan, in the spirit of George Plimpton, he participated in walk-on tryouts for the team and was dumbfounded to find himself listed on the roster. His position on the team never amounted to much in a game-time contribution, but Ben felt strongly that his faith was inextricably linked to his purpose. He felt called to anonymously place Bibles in each USC teammate locker on Christmas Eve–to resounding indifference and rejection from his friends. It wasn’t until three years later, when his role at USC had led to a role with Coach Pete Carroll at the Seahawks organization, that an old friend connected with Ben and told him that one of the Bibles had captivated the heart of a teammate in the three days before his death.
With a humble spirit dedicated to consistent acts of discipleship, Ben Malcolmson is an authentic voice for the power of simple obedience and trust, for what can happen when a believer allows God to work in a life. Walk On is the result of God using his faithful people to work in the lives of others.
