Moyer’s Family Bookstore
On the west coast Christian bookstores are few and far between.  Moyer’s Family Bookstore is a shining light in the darkness.

Mars Hill Bookstore
For a diverse collection of Christian books, Marks Hill has a nice collection.

21st Century Christian
For curriculum, VBS supplies, books, and videos 21st Century Christian is a staple.

Gospel Advocate
From the publishers of the doctrinal standard: The Gospel Advocate, is a bookstore offering many classic works and soon to be classics.

ACU Press
Varying perspectives are always good to keep us balanced.  ACU Press offers books from Christian authors with diverse viewpoints to keep us well informed.

Lambert Book House
This is a favorite of mine for good down-to-earth Bible study materials for all ages.  The VBS material is good, conservative and adaptable.

church of Christ directories

World Wide Directory of the churches of Christ
Whenever I want to check on a church location or minister, one of the better places to look is:

The site is a little “old-school” in design (those flashing animated bullets hurt my eyes) and it would be nice if the link for the USA were at the top, so here it is for easy access.   Hint: to stop the annoying flashing bullets hit your browser’s STOP button.

The directory that I turn to the most for US churches of Christ is ChurchZip.  The thing that is really nice is that it is totally free, easy to update, and whenever a member tells me that they want to find a church in a certain area, you put in the zip code of the area and you get a nice list of congregations from that zip code as a starting point out by the radius you select.  Very modern, and no flashing bullets!

Churches of Christ on the web
For church web sites online one of the oldest and best kept lists is at the church of Christ North’s site “churches of Christ on the web” Hosted Sites

Let me mention a few web sites I’ve designed and host here at

Hymn A Day
A good friend of mine wrote two very handy books about hymns.  When I saw what Graham McKay had put together, I just knew that it needed to be online.  Check out some samples from his books and buy a book!

Word Missions Review
When I was in graduate school I met a dear sister in the Lord who was a missionary in her younger days.  Kay Patton handed me a newsletter she mailed to friend about missionary activities that I turned into a simple web site.  I’ve always found the activities of missionaries around the world to be extremely encouraging.

Biblia Hebraica
Taking Hebrew in college was a chore for me.  At the time there were no Hebrew tutor web sites or helps for Biblical Hebrew.  A friend of mine suggested we make something for ourselves.  We did, and it was Biblia Hebraica.  It was useful for us, so I’ve posted our notes, quizzes and exercises online for all to share to help students (in particular) do better in a Hebrew class.

Good News For You
A minister friend wrote a Bible lesson called “Good News For You.”  Since I found very few interactive Bible lessons online that actually seemed interesting.  I created an interactive version of the paper version of Good News For You for all to share.  I’ll have to admit that the coding is old-school html, but it still does the job!  Perhaps one of these days I’ll update it.

Christians In Japan: 100 Years
I’ve got a few connections in Japan, and I found this particular article on Japanese missions quite interesting and inspiring.

And the two linked directly to are:

Jokes and Stories
As a minister and teacher, a good story is a great attention getter.  While I’ve many many more to add (someday) to the site, these should help keep things going for a while.

PowerPoint Templates
Since I’ve been using PowerPoint I found the lack of FREE templates and Christian images lacking online.  So, I took to posting the ones I made for myself online for others to use.  Enjoy them – share them – share Jesus!

Restoration Movement
This is probably one of the oldest RM sites on the web, if not the first.  Dr. Hans Rollmann has put a lot of effort to get online the full text and images of many RM works and pictures.
