Finish Strong: Ten Essentials to Overcoming Life’s Challenges
By Carl Godwin
In Finish Strong: Ten Essentials to Overcoming Life’s Challenges, Pastor Carl Godwin, founder and pastor of Calvary Community Church, shares stories from the final ten years of his fifty-year ministry, a ministry that began as an independent church plant with five people in a living room and grew to the thriving congregation it is today.
Godwin tells the story of Calvary’s first forty years in his book, The Sermon Ran Long: A Memoir of Marathons and Ministry. Finish Strong is the story of the final decade of his work. In it, he shares the tools and practices that helped him face unexpected challenges like a personal battle with cancer and a global pandemic. Godwin writes, “I want you to finish strong. I also want you to know that God has continued to answer prayer as He did from the beginning fifty years ago. It is true that when God Guides, God Provides.”
Practical and forthright, Finish Strong: Ten Essentials to Overcoming Life’s Challenges wraps the learned wisdom of fifty years of ministry and commitment into ten essentials to guide your steps as you finish strong in your marathon of life and faith.
