About the Book

EXHILARATING—that's the word that comes to mind whenever we have the chance to experience the highest roller coaster or hook into the biggest fish out on the ocean. It is the feeling of the challenge, the opportunity to do something, perhaps for the first time or the last time on earth. This book is designed to make you feel excited again about your walk with the Lord Jesus and your work in His kingdom on this earth.

Until this point, you may have been going through the motions (like being on a merry-go-round), moving but not really going anywhere. Or maybe you jumped off the ride a long time ago. Stop Going to Church will move you out into the open streams again, where God can use you to do something amazing for Him, before your ride is over.

Every one of us wants to leave a mark on this world. Each of us wants to know that what we have built with our lives will change people long after we leave. God wants to use us to do just that. But that simply won't happen if all we do is walk where everyone has walked. Your special ministry awaits you. Step out in faith, and let God do something really unique with your life. Trust Him—take the challenge and let this book get you moving in that direction!

About the Author

John Nappo has ministered in a variety of states, church sizes, mission efforts, and staff sizes, with teens, children, and adults of all ages. He has moved churches from the drowning traditions of stagnation to a growing and outreach-minded focus. He brings to the forefront the challenges that face us as Christians living in the twenty-first century.

John and Tricia Nappo presently live in New Bern, North Carolina, where they have started an outreach ministry in downtown, called Journey ‘The Christian Walk’. Journey is a coffee house ministry to the homeless and needy people in the community. They have four awesome children who are growing up to love the Lord and serve Him in their own way. The oldest is married to a great young man, their son lives and works in South Carolina. The third child is in college, and the fourth is finishing up high school. Tricia works in the Emergency Room at the local hospital as a secretary and John coaches, officiates sports, mentors young people, runs the café during the week, Oh Yea…and preaches/teaches each week.
