Radiant Church

Restoring the Credibility of Our Witness

“Pointing out the problems with the white evangelical church is easy. Showing the church how to draw on the abundant grace of God so we can live emboldened, empowered, and radiant lives, well, that’s much more difficult. But that’s exactly the task Tara Beth Leach sets for herself with this exuberant, thoughtful, and inspiring book. Written by a pastor who loves the church, Radiant Church is comforting and challenging in equal measure.”

Kingdom Culture

Experience the power of the kingdom in your world today...


Within the church is a population of broken sinners who often struggle to get along, agree, and see eye to eye.

And yet, it is the church that is invited to
be the light in a relentlessly broken and weary world

40 Days of Being a 6

Part of Enneagram Daily Reflections

“When I discovered I was an Enneagram Six, I didn’t want to be one.” Pastor Tara Beth Leach continues, “I hated that I was marked by fear.” At the same time she reflects that she does resonate with the experience of fear and anxiety that can plague a Six―whether they are pulling back from or diving right in to the things that feel threatening. She explores what it means for her to be a redeemed Six who is allowing Jesus to transform her a little at a time. Whether you are a Six, have a Six wing, or have a friend or spouse who is a Six, you will find wisdom here as Tara Beth explores her own journey of deepening self-understanding through the Enneagram. To take you deeper, each of these forty daily readings concludes with a prayer, a spiritual practice, or a reflection question.
