Inspired by Joel’s insights, Dave Eastman took the core material, traveled to Europe, and produced a European edition of the book.

God has led our church down new paths since last fall. God moved in the hearts of Kip and Bethany Harms, the evangelist and women’s ministry leader who had been leading the Salt Lake Christian Church since April of 2011, showing them a need within their family that could not be ignored. Amazingly, an opening for a ministry position was revealed. With that potential once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and the full support of the core leadership group here in Utah, the Harms set out to make their transition. They pledged to remain around to assist with finding a couple to replace themselves.
