Kingdom Man challenges and equips men to fully understand their position under God as well as their position over what God has given them. The biblical definition of a man is one who has learned to operate under the authority of Jesus Christ while carrying our responsible and legitimate leadership within the sphere of influence that God has placed on him. Kingdom Man provides concepts men can follow that will help them actively pursue ways to maximize and develop the character qualities of biblical manhood in their lives.
#631: Kingdom Woman Series by Dr. Tony Evans and Crystal Hurst (Park Avenue)–Tuesdays Only–Mrs. Carpenter
Kingdom Women Wanted!!!
A kingdom woman gives the devil as much as reason to fear as a kingdom man. She lives confidently in the knowledge that Christ died and rose for her so that she can experience the significance of the destiny to which she has been called. It reminds women of their calling from God to be free, delivered, healed, and to have hope. The authors bring insight that encourages women to correct distorted perceptions and understand who they really are in Christ–never settling for less when connected with the One who gives them hope. All believers are covered by God’s covenant with Abraham. Women need to know these rights and confidently claim and live by them. The new covenant offers more than a life of mediocrity. A kingdom woman is called and empowered to live a life of victory through Christ.
