The World Is Desperate for What You Have


As believers, we have received unimaginable grace from the Father. Unfortunately, we often separate our spiritual life from our everyday lives. We fail to value the grace given to us, and we miss the opportunity to bring heaven to earth. And then we wonder what light we can bring to a world in deep darkness.

With depth and insight, Dr. John Jackson shows that grace distributed is the key to sweeping social change, hope and revival. Through biblical teaching and prophetic revelation, Dr. Jackson helps you partner with the Holy Spirit to step into the fullness of all God has called you to be–and to unleash the redemptive presence of Jesus in your home, workplace and community.

God wants to use you right now, right where you are. It’s time to become a heavenly ambassador that shares the grace you’ve been given with a world aching for transformation.
