Sarah Jo Fairchild (right) has published a book The Story of the Spirit: Knowing Who He is Transforms Who You Become (Resource Publications, Eugene Oregon). Sarah is the wife of Teddy Fairchild, senior pastor of Banner of Christ UB church in Byron Center, Mich. The book is available on Amazon.
The book examines the work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of various Old Testament persons. Through the eyes of leaders like Moses and Gideon and lesser-known heroes like Jephthah and Bezalel, we discover a Spirit who champions second chances, emboldens the insecure, restores lost peace and purpose. and transforms places of wounding into places of worship. Bishop Todd Fetters wrote the introduction.
The appendix includes resources for group discussions, and for sermon or teaching series. A digital media package, which includes imagery for teaching slides, is also available for purchase. However, Sarah is making it available free of charge to any UB pastor or teacher who purchases the book during its first six months of release.
Sarah completed her bachelor’s degree in biblical studies at Huntington University, where she met and married her Marine. She earned her master’s in ministry from Bethel College and draws on diverse leadership experiences in worship and women’s ministries, international missions, and more. Sarah believes adventurous Bible study is best shared with others, and thrives on seeing God’s truth transform people in ways they never imagined possible.
