Grateful for this video interview about “beyond MY church” with one of our local TV stations, @theGoodLife45.

Two weeks ago, I had the privilege of being interviewed for a Central FL TV show called “The Good Life” hosted by Barbara Beck and Ken Mikesell. They asked some questions about my second book, beyond MY church. Yo can grab that book this month on Amazon Kindle for only $2.99. You can watch the interview on Vimeo, if you care to do so, and maybe see if you think it is worth grabbing 🙂

Grateful.

Let me know any feedback as we continue to sharpen this message about Jesus’ intent for His church based upon His prayer in John 17.

As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world. I sanctify Myself for them, so they also may be sanctified by the truth. I pray not only for these, but also for those who believe in Me through their message. May they all be one, as You, Father, are in Me and I am in You. May they also be one in Us, so the world may believe You sent Me. I have given them the glory You have given Me. May they be one as We are one. I am in them and You are in Me. May they be made completely one, so the world may know You have sent Me and have loved them as You have loved Me.
(John 17:18-23 HCSB)

[ added to this release by me _ beyond MY church and Cartas Vivas (the Spanish version of Live Sent) are also available on Kindle. ]

In addition to the new content available for Kindle ereaders, New Hope Publishers maintains a Web site, NewHopeDigital.com, that Bishop said adds value to the books published.

Grateful for this press release from the publisher about next week’s release of the new book…

(BIRMINGHAM, Ala.)—November 29, 2011—We all know it is important to think beyond our own church, but why is it really imperative? Thinking beyond your church matters because the unity of the church is vital in order for the work of God to happen in our city and in our world.

In Beyond My Church: Thinking and Living So That the World Might Know (978-1-59669-345-6, N124150, $14.99) by pastor Jason Dukes, you will explore this unity and discover how it can become part of the DNA of your local church expression. And not just unity in the one local church family that you call your own. When all followers of Jesus actually love one another like Jesus loved us—living according to His ways rather than our own—then the world will see and, in turn, believe that Jesus was actually sent as the Son of God. This is the unity Jesus prayed for. It should be lived out among His followers and can only be present when God is the force holding us all together.

Praise for Beyond My Church
“It only stands to reason that if our Lord has the whole world in His hands, we should have the whole world on our hearts. Jason reminds us well of what it means to live the kingdom life.”—Dr. Johnny Hunt, pastor, First Baptist Church Woodstock

“The ‘MY church’ mentality has manifested into a form of a church that is not ultimately one that missional nor Christ edifying. Jason Dukes will challenge you to rethink the church and to live as a sent one. We are sent ones called to embrace a grander and higher dream—a gospel movement much bigger than ourselves and much more powerful.”—Dr. Tiffany Smith, missions mobilization, Southern Baptists of Texas Convention

so grateful to my friend Billy Mitchell and others throwing a “release party” for beyond MY church!!!

My wife and I are so grateful for our friend Billy Mitchell, along with Jim Collins and Josh Taylor and others, for taking the initiative to throw a book release party on December 6th from 7pm to 9pm at House Blend Cafe. Thanks so much, bro. Really love you and am grateful for you.

Here’s what Billy posted on his Facebook as well as a few other social networking sites:

December 6th there will be a Launch Party/Book Signing for Jason C Dukes new book “Beyond my Church” at House Blend Cafe in Orlando (7pm-9pm). Please plan to come, buy a book, get it signed by Jason, and celebrate with all of us. Jason has had a HUGE impact on many of us in Florida and this is a small way for us to say thank you and give back…plus, I can’t wait to get my hands on a book!

Looking forward to some good food and good company at the cafe the night!
