Help I'm a Pastor Book

“Steve’s ministry has changed my personal and ministry life. He has created a very practical approach to a joy filled and victorious Christian life. Many people teach and write, but few actually change the way we live! This will change your personal, ministry and organizational life by the simple exposing of lies and releasing the Kingdom over them.”

“Steve Backlund is known for his wisdom and practical insights on “how to do life.” The students in our ministry school, Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry, love him because he always leaves them encouraged and refreshed in their vision. He has an unusual gift to take the mundane and make it exciting and to take the familiar and make it new.”
