Never Settle Cover 1 Greg Holder



No one chooses a “less than” life. But it happens. Little by little, we start putting down roots in a land that is less than satisfying, less than interesting, less than helpful, and certainly less than hopeful. Before we know it, our faith is apathetic, bland, lukewarm. There is a better way.

Never Settle offers a fresh vision for a faith that is both soothingly hot and thirst-quenchingly cold. This is your moment. Live courageously.  One day, one step, one faithful act at a time.


In The Genius of One, author and pastor Greg Holder reminds us of the high value Jesus and his early followers placed on community and offers guidance for how to see and relate to one another in emotionally and spiritually healthy ways so that we, the church, can fulfill Jesus’ prayer for us and model a better way of loving one another in a fractured world.

Join me for something new, yes, but not very normal. There are about a godzillion ways for us to get better at doing life together.

The Crossing

Rooted in Scripture.
Culturally engaged.
Deeply personal.
