Preparing for the Resurgence

Mars Hill Church,

This fall, Pastor Mark will publish his latest book, A Call to Resurgence: Will Christianity Have a Funeral or a Future?

The official release date is November 5, but the book will be available at Mars Hill churches in October. At the same time, we’re gearing up for this year’s Resurgence Conference (Nov. 5–6), where Pastor Mark will lead with Rick Warren, Matt Chandler, Greg Laurie, and other great preachers.

Get ready

In other words, we’re in the middle of a very busy season, and I implore you to pray for Mars Hill leaders in general and Pastor Mark in particular. The book and the conference will confront a number of the challenges facing the evangelical church today, and the road ahead will not be easy.

The time is quickly arriving—if it’s not already here—when Christians will be widely condemned, hated, and rejected for what we believe: that Jesus Christ is our only hope for life and forgiveness and peace. A Call to Resurgence is Pastor Mark’s effort to inspire the church to cling to the essential truth of Jesus and not crumble under society’s pressure to abandon the faith.

I am so grateful for Pastor Mark’s bold example and faithful leadership, and I pray that this book would be a great encouragement for us all to stand together with our brothers and sisters, come what may, for the glory of God and the salvation of many.

Thank you

I also wanted to take a moment to say thank you for purchasing resources from our local Mars Hill bookstores. As a gift to the church, all of our authors and musicians do not earn royalties on any material sold in our bookstores—all of the proceeds go entirely to the church.

So when Dustin Kensrue releases his first worship album next month, or if you’ve bought a copy of the Ten Commandments Study Guide, all sales at Mars Hill go right back to Mars Hill. This has been a huge blessing to our church over time. For example, in the last ten years, our bookstores have sold over 60,000 copies of Pastor Mark’s books alone, which equates to a gift of more than $200,000!

I hope this is encouraging for you, church. We love you, we thank you for your prayers, and we look forward to the work God has for us heading into the fall.

Jesus was a man who claimed to be God. Think on that for a minute. If that were true, how would it change the way you thought, felt, and lived this life?

At Mars Hill, we believe that Jesus is God. We take him at his word. Because of this, everything we do is all about Jesus. We invite you to learn more about this man who is God and how you can find forgiveness and new life in him.

We value community

Church is more than a service. It’s people living life together and helping one another throughout our cities to serve our cities. Each week, thousands of people at Mars Hill meet in hundreds of small communities to learn about God, pray, eat, laugh, and live. We call these Community Groups—and they’re the heart of our church.
