God is a City Builder

by Ian Shelton

"'God is a City Builder' calls the church to take up her God-given mandate to be a repairer and restorer of broken communities. It’s a prophetic call for the church to unite in reconciled diversity and, with an attitude of Christ-like humility, proclaim the gospel both in word and acts of sacrificial service. In this book Ian Shelton combines a lifetime’s study of the scriptures with decades of practical experience to highlight the Father’s plan to restore your community."

Disruptive City Women

by Letitia Shelton

"YOU WERE BORN TO BE DISRUPTIVE! Our cities are full of darkness that is oppressing lives. As women, we see and feel the pain of this oppression. Be inspired by women around the world who have responded to God—disrupting silence and indifference, injustice, homelessness, domestic violence, death, abortion, prejudice, corruption, and more. Their responses have taken courage and required risk-taking, and at the same time produced much fruit. Now we invite you to take responsibility for the darkness in your city and move into action to see light released. When women are mobilised to make a difference, we will see a Gospel City Movement in our cities. All sales royalties from this book go back into the work of City Women Toowoomba - equipping the women of the future! Book dimensions: 5" x 7" "

Fathers: Building Family, Church and Community

by Ian Shelton

"Fatherlessness is the biggest problem facing society. Wives need a responsible husband, and children need a father who is involved in their lives and is in the home. Communities need the fathers and mothers to stand together for the good of all. This manual is not a book or even a detailed comment on fathers or the lack of them. It is simply a list of relevant Scriptures from the Bible about fathering, with a few short remarks about each Scripture. The manual is meant to be read slowly and reflectively with time to allow each Scripture to sink in. The most important aspect of this exercise is for the father to take time to pray over the Scripture and to ask God to help him be the responsible, loving father that his family and his community so desperately need. It is my opinion, in light of Scripture and my own experience, that fathers are indispensable in the raising of families and the building of secure communities. My prayer is that fathers will support each other to be even better fathers, and especially that they will work together for the sake of the fatherless in their communities."

The Doorway to Transformation: Collected Writings

by Ian Shelton

"Complied over more than 20 years, these collected writings represent a lifetime of practical ministry experience. The principles expressed here are more than theory, they have been implemented on the ground among real people in real places. They have been tried and tested. These writings are lessons learned over the long haul, from years of labouring to see the church of a city unify across denominational and theological divides and pull together missionally so that a community might experience the Gospel."
