Preacher’s Corner

For Pastors and Preachers

These resources are organized by Dishon Mills (pastor of Grace Christian Church) and Mako Nagasawa (director of The Anástasis Center) for pastors, preachers, and small group leaders in Grace Communion International. The idea grew out of our friendship, ministry partnership, and shared passion for good theology. This website also hosts messages and small group leader notes, Christian ethics curriculum for small groups, and explorations of healing atonement and the Triune God. If you find these resources helpful, please consider donating to help The Anástasis Center continue developing and offering them.
