Kerry and Chris Shook are some of today’s most gifted communicators offering a clear, contemporary and creative teaching style. They are the pastors of Woodlands Church, one of the fastest-growing churches in America. They founded Fellowship of The Woodlands, now Woodlands Church in 1993; and since then, the church has grown to 17,000 in average attendance each weekend.
Kerry and Chris believe that church should be engaging and fun, calling it “The Best Hour of Your Week.” They strive to eliminate the barriers of boredom, unfriendliness and fear that keep people from experiencing not just religion but a relationship with Jesus Christ. His messages are relevant, and his illustrations memorable.
Chris is the Director of Missions and Women’s Ministry at Woodlands Church. Her missions’ work has touched thousands of under-resourced people locally and in numerous countries around the world. Her Women’s Ministry is one of the largest in the country providing fellowship, worship and Bible study opportunities to hundreds of women each week.
Kerry Shook Ministries is a worldwide television ministry that broadcasts to a local, national and international audience. Pastor Kerry and Chris can now be seen by millions in 50 states and over 200 countries worldwide.

The book encourages readers to face their own mortality and live life to the fullest. Their second best-selling book, Love at Last Sight – Thirty Days to Grow and Deepen Your Closest Relationships, takes on what popular culture would have people believe about true relationships.
