The Coming of the Spirit and the Birth of the Church

March 5, 2021

As Pastor J.D. continues our study of Acts called, SENT, we’re learning what it means to be a follower of Christ, fully committed to his mission. Pastor J.D. is teaching from Acts, Chapter 2, verses 42 to 47.

Receive Something Better, Something Greater: A Study of Elijah and Elisha by Pastor J.D.

Receive Something Better, Something Greater: A Study of Elijah and Elisha by Pastor J.D.

Just like God shaped Elijah to get him battle ready, he wants to shape you—to make you a mighty warrior for his kingdom. And this new study guide will help you do just that! Something Better, Something Greater includes eight short chapters that come with workbook pages to help you flesh out, apply, and pray through what you’re learning. You can complete the study quickly or take your time over a couple of months to work through each section weekly. This study follows very closely with our on-air teaching, so don’t miss getting your copy!

About Summit Life

We believe the gospel is a deep well of transformative grace – and we’ll never find the bottom.


We know life with Jesus extends beyond Sunday mornings. That’s why providing daily broadcasts, honest podcasts, insightful blogs, and challenging books are all part of J.D.’s ministry as a pastor – and as a believer. At the end of the day, we want you to be drawn deeper into the gospel and to fall more in love with Jesus.
