Reading List

Pastor’s Suggested Resources

The next time you come to church, check out our Pastor’s Resource Table!

Greg 4

Our Pastor, Greg Schneeberger, has carefully chosen a selection of books and music he believes will strengthen your Christian life.

“My hope and prayer is to provide our family with gospel resources across a variety of topics that can enrich their life with Christ throughout the week as well as prepare them to serve God in our city. You’ll find books for adults and kids, men and women, on the church and culture, as well as some locally-sourced worship music. I see the table as an extension of our Lord’s Day (Sunday) worship. My ultimate goal is that these sources might help us realize more deeply ‘what is the breadth and length and weight and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.’ (Ephesians 3:18-19)” – Pastor Greg Schneeberger

So, when you come to church, stop by and look over these amazing resources and find some of the answers you may be looking for!

The pastors at Christ Church Santa Fe share a deep interest in the ways in which religion and culture influence each other. To that end, our services typically begin with an inspirational quotation. Almost every book on this recommended reading list has been quoted from in our services. These are our pastors’ favorite books.

By the way, scripture at Christ Church Santa Fe is taken from the English Standard Version (ESV) of the Bible.
