As we kick off our fall season at Crossings, don’t forget to come to the Crossings Bookstore and pick up your copy of Here Am I, Lord…Send Somebody Else by Jill Briscoe. This Pastor’s Pick book is a great book that encourages its readers to leave their uncertainty behind and step into confidence in Christ.

Thanks to the “IF Gathering” conferences in 2017, a whole new generation of women became familiar with the writings of Jill Briscoe. An octogenarian who continues to write and speak, Jill began her ministry doing street evangelism in her native England. Soon she was disciplining young women, teaching, and raising a family. When her husband Stuart accepted the senior pastorate of Elmbrook Church in the suburbs of Milwaukee, Jill’s ministry took on an international role.

“When I served as a pastor at Elmbrook,” Executive Pastor of Ministries, Bill Search said, “I had the privilege of getting to know Stuart and Jill Briscoe personally. They are faithful, dedicated servants who love God passionately and continue to serve as examples to many. Jill’s gift of writing is creative, poetic, poignant, and helps connect others to God and His Word. Here Am I, Lord…Send Somebody Else is perhaps one of Jill’s finest works. Keep an eye out – Jill plans to be at Crossings in early 2019!”

Bill recommends this book for all those who need a boost in their faith and spiritual confidence this fall. Looking for some more recommendations? Check out all of our Pastor’s Picks right here, or come visit the Bookstore for recommendations tailored to your interests.
