NewBookPCCNA to Release New Book
Dean Merrill

For centuries the church of the West denied the charismata (grace gifts) of the Spirit.  Called "cessationists" by historians and theologians, these streams of Christianity refuted  contemporary manifestations of the miraculous power of God, as demonstrated by the apostles in the New Testament.

The pendulum has swung widely and rapidly in the opposite direction, favoring the authenticity of modern day miracles and gifts of the Spirit. Pentecostals and charismatics are leading the way, for individuals with a personal experience are never at the mercy of organizations with an argument.

PCCNA, in partnership with BroadStreet Publishing, is in the process of documenting the presence and power of God in our movements, as attested to by leaders and laity alike.  Dean Merrill, award-winning author, is writing the stories submitted by our member organizations.

The new book, to be released in February, 2018, at the PCCNA annual meeting, is 50% complete. It is amazing...you will be deeply moved and overcome with joy!  We want it to inspire faith and bring hope to myriads of readers.  

ATTENTION: only members who have stories included in the text will be recognized in the appendix. An entire page will be devoted to profile and recognize the member group. It is our desire that EVERY church network, denomination, and parachurch organization in PCCNA be represented.  Please contact Dean Merrill at deanmerrill@comcast.net with story ideas from one of your pastors, churches, or people.  Or...maybe it is your story?

"The exciting thing that A Shared Vision celebrates is that there is a strong missional impulse among us. As you read the various stories of revitalization and multiplication, I believe you will be both informed and inspired. These testimonies of God's work among us will leave congregations and leaders with hope-no matter their size, age or context. I know this book will spur you on to do your part within His family."
