Don't Let A Good One Slip By


It is sad but somehow we did it.  We have let a good video series slip by without taking advantage of it. If you have read a book or seen a video of anything by KEN BAILEY then you know he is an expert on Middle Eastern Christianity as well as the customs and traditions of Middle Eastern people. In the video series, Christian Leadership in the New Testament, Bailey lives up to his reputation. 


So, please, don't let this video sit all alone on the Resource Center shelf.  We are offered many great resources and this is one. Curious? Call Nellie for more information 304-744-7648.
