Manila, 2017 (booklet)
Many things factor into the making of a leader: culture, the historical context, the gifting of the individual, and the makeup of the group they lead. Leaders take on the characteristics of their mentors, denominations, and their training programs.
The Bible has been the best resource. When they asked Pastor Yongi Cho how his church grew to be the largest in the world at the time, he said, “I pray, then I obey.” Jesus said, “I only say what I hear the Father saying, and do what the Father is doing.” (John 12:49-50; 14:31) Leadership is not an exact science. As you follow the Chief Shepherd listening and obeying, He will train you to feed and love the sheep.
Jesus Who are You? Manila, 2018 (booklet)
This book is brief but based on the Bible. All else is based on the shifting sands of speculation and personal opinion. Theology means the study of Theo (God). Many theological courses study everything about the ways of God, but not God. This book is a sketch that will help the reader to clarify his understanding of God. Jesus Christ is the exact image of the invisible God (Hebrews 1:3). The starting point of faith is “Get Jesus right”. That is the primary difference between cults and real Christians. May we give Jesus Christ the preeminence as we run this path of life with our eyes focused on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our Faith. Everything becomes a shadow in the light of the Son (Hebrews 12:1-2)

Jesus Healing Ministry? USA 2021 (booklet)
Christianity is not a Spectator Sport! Too often church meetings are a spectator sport. Believers watch as professionals pray, sing, and preach. This booklet attempts to motivate you to get out of your seat and into the action, out of the bleachers and into the game. Every ‘player’ (member of the church) has an important function in Christ’ kingdom. (1 Corinthians 12:12-27) The body of Christ needs healing and the world is still a broken and sick place. One of the icons of the local church is a healing community. A church is a place of holistic ministry that touches spirit, soul and body. People are healed from sin sickness (salvation), the mind is renewed (including stabilizing emotions), addictions are defeated, and the physical body is healed. We want to provide an atmosphere of faith where miracles are welcome. This is normal biblical Christianity: The sick are healed in meetings as well as outside in homes or public places. Jesus sent His disciples to do this. He is also sending you. (Luke 9:1; 10:9)

Donkey Duty with Jesus
Most of our lives w invest in self and go out of our way to serve ourselves. The world says we wastes topo much of our efforts on others, caring for them and working for them, while neglecting our own comforts. On the other hand, we host events to honor those who selflessly serve others even to the point of giving their own lives. Which is it? Selfless service or a narcissistic life where even our service is motivated by self interests. Jesus Christ is the Ultimate Example of a servant. Jesus is the Tireless Servant of God and Man. When God stepped off His throne and entered our space, He made Himself of no reputation and took upon Himself the form of a servant.
We are encouraged by the apostle Paul to have the same attitude. When a person begins to understand their purpose, they may mistakenly think they are called to be part of some earth-shattering event. That may be true for few, but most of us find our significance in insignificant service.
If you are already a yoke fellow with Jesús Christ, I commend you. keep doing it no matter what. If you have had a taste of the glamorous gospel of self indulgence, perhaps he Lord will reveal Himself to you in a new, life changing way ( Matthew 11:28:30)
Donkey Duty with Jesus. Servanthood is not about performing to earn something from God or productivity to impress people. It is about the character and nature of Christ being formed in you and being expressed through you, You are saved by grace but crafted in Christ to walk in good works. (Ephesians 2:8-10). You fulfill His purpose as you are one with Him – He in you and you in Him. Donkeys are burden bearers laboring together with the Greatest Servant of all, Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Fire Bugs for Jesus
Let’s be clear from the start: I am not talking about fire flies, those littles insects that glow at night. And I am not talking about starting natural fires, although I make several illustrations about natural fires. Arson is a crime. An arsonist is a person who sets destructive fires. They have an addiction or an agenda for vengeance or financial gain.\This book is about [people who are filled with the Holy Spirit fire and have a passion for others to be touched by it. I am calling these people Fire Bugs for Jesus. In this book I will give stories and examples of good fire and bad fire, and mysterious fire. Jesus Christ is the Baptizer in the Holy Spirit and fire. In fact our God is a consuming fire. (Matthew 3:11; Hebrews 12:29
