Abundant life. Does that describe the life you’re living now? Or do words like busy, overwhelming, disappointing, or exhausting come to mind instead? Today, more than ever, we long for satisfaction in our lives and fulfillment in our faith but come up empty. We are lacking, and that hole can’t be filled by money, prestige, or stuff.
Pastor Choco, author of Move into More, knows what it feels like to want more from life. Raised by a single mother after his alcoholic father left, he grew up as a poor Puerto Rican kid in Humboldt Park, one of Chicago’s toughest neighborhoods. He grew up never having enough.
However, God had so much more for him. Pastor Choco rose to become senior pastor of New Life Covenant Church (one of Chicago’s fastest-growing churches) and one of TIME magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World.
In Move into More, with conviction and earnestness, Pastor Choco explains that God has promised a life of more—joyful contentment that comes from living passionately with a purpose—to anyone who follows him in obedience. It’s not who you are, he says, it’s what Jesus can do if you will let him. Choco breaks down popular-yet-untrue thinking that God’s “more” is about wealth or material possessions, fame or power, and shows readers that God’s more is far better than anyone could ever imagine.
If you’re willing to Move into More, your eyes will be opened to the all-powerful, all-loving God who wants more for you than you can imagine in your wildest dreams. When you follow Him faithfully and obediently, you will find peace in your problems, rest in your weariness, order in circumstantial chaos, and joy in trials.
Don’t settle for less than God has for you—it’s time to Move into More!
In this affecting memoir, de Jesus, senior pastor of New Life Covenant Church in Chicago, encourages readers to embrace God's call to be more gracious and loving. The author grew up in crime-ridden Humboldt Park, Chicago, and recounts his early life with an alcoholic father who abandoned the family, leaving de Jesus's mother to raise six children alone. At 14, while attending a local Christian conference, de Jesus had a transformational experience when two unknown voices spoke to him as one: "I have called you to be a great leader. Stay in my path. I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse those who curse you." Rattled but emboldened, de Jesus decided in that moment to give his life to Christ. Told in direct, uplifting prose, de Jesus's memoir explains how he overcame the challenges of his youth to become a pastor with a dynamic ministry one of the fastest growing in Chicago by "risking it all" and preaching to his neighborhood that simply following Christ can bring more joy than what the world offers. This story of optimism and faith will appeal to readers looking for a guiding voice during trying times.
