February Writing Sabbaticals (2016–2019)

Jason Meyer

Pastor for Preaching & Vision

I do not take the gift of a writing leave for granted. Even though February gets filled up with many hours of reading and writing and editing and rewriting, I find it incredibly refreshing. Recently, many people have asked me what things I have written while on these writing leaves, and so I am sharing a list of past books and current projects below. Please continue to pray for me that the Lord would empower future writing for his glory.
