A Story of Grace by Jeremy Vickers

SunflowersGracebookPastor Jeremy Vickers shares congregational insights in his new book.  Jeremy Vickers, 38, has been lead pastor at Grace United Methodist Church in Lee’s Summit for eight years. In his new book, A Story of Grace, he shares a clear and concise vision how all churches should be a “light in the darkness.” From humble beginnings as a new church start, through a time in the wilderness and now a healthy, vital and growing congregation again, Grace continues to be a relevant witness in their community.

Jeremy drew on his many experiences in rural, county seat and suburban churches to develop a missional and contextually relevant congregational witness .Grace has always been a faithful and strong church. All they needed was a clear path to walk, the author recently said.  The book is written to anyone who is new to Grace and has a desire to know more about how the church functions and what they believe.  A unique feature in this book is the Enhanced video additions of the author sharing his personal views before each chapter. It is truly a first for the Christian community, as Enhanced ebooks are not available yet on all Ebook platforms. After seeing this book, many churches are surely to follow in a similar fashion for their guests and visitors by creating and developing their own Enhanced ebooks. It is a new and advanced way of sharing the timeless message and story of Jesus Christ and His followers.

Jeremy Vickers is an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church. He lives in Lee’s Summit, Missouri with his wife, son and their golden retriever.
