Books and Publications


ContiAnnaLee Conti ('90) published a new book with Ambassador International, Till the Storm Passes By, the first novel in her Alaskan Waters Trilogy, available in e-book and trade paperback. Conti's experiences growing up in an AG missionary family in Alaska during the fifties and sixties heavily inform her writing. Conti has written short stories, articles, and curriculum for GPH for 25 years, as well as pastoring churches with her husband, Bob ('77) in New York State for 35 years.


To learn more about her books and to order, go to



detrick Don Detrick ('08) recently published Growing Disciples Organically: The Jesus Method of Spiritual Formation.


Follow me. These two simple words, spoken by Jesus, are often overcomplicated with theological, psychological, and sociological interpretations. Don uses metaphors from organic farming to cultivate a less complicated, organic approach to growing disciples.


Don has more than 35 years' experience as a minister, denominational executive, and university/seminary professor.  He serves as one of three executive officers for a network of more than 300 churches and over 1400 credentialed ministers in the Northwest.



Luke coverFrank Luke ('03) published Rebirths, a collection of Christian fiction stories. He has more books of fiction and nonfiction planned. Information and details can be found at


Frank, author of Sunset Over Gunther and many other tales, brings three dark fantasies set in a world where God's children thrive but so do dark forces of magic and evil. This story of a man who must face his own grief and choices to find his purpose promises to be a binding tale for any who have ever had to face troubles of their own making.


Available on SmashWords, Createspace, and Amazon
