ABOUT THE BOOK
Megachurch pastor Allen Jackson invites readers on a 100-day adventure of experiencing God through ten biblical practices that will reignite their faith and transform their lives.
Many Christians experience low points in their faith, times when their spiritual lives have grown cold, stagnant, or routine. They feel frustrated and desperate to reconnect with God. Yet encouragement alone is not enough. We need God's power to bring transformation, and we need specific tools and a focused intent to know the Lord. Drawing upon years of pastoral ministry and his own experience, Allen Jackson has developed a 100-day plan to reinvigorate a believer's life, organized around ten declarations of intent, including:
- I Intend to Grow Spiritually
- I Intend to Read the Gospels
- I Intend to Pray Daily
- I Intend to Honor God in My Home, and
- I Intend to Work with Integrity.
A simple investment of twenty minutes a day will create an unstoppable momentum in readers' lives. Their hearts are opened to new possibilities with God where his purposes unfold and where the fruit of his rewards are found.
Allen Jackson serves as senior pastor of World Outreach Church, a congregation of fifteen thousand located in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He is also the founder of Allen Jackson Ministries, which reaches millions of people with the gospel each year. For more information, visit Pastor Allen Jackson’s website.

“Traditional thinking is that animals only learn by two methods―trauma and repetition―and more than likely a little of both. I sometimes think that the same is true of mankind. We have to get our fingers burned and learn the same lessons over and over again before they finally stick. From his experience and observation, Pastor Allen Jackson has written a book dealing with our desire to have a closer personal relationship with our Creator. Intentional Faith is about the common problems of self-doubt, forgiveness, and the desire to walk closer to God, written in everyday terminology and cut-to-the-chase conclusions.”

“I have found his advice to be profoundly practical. He does not forcefully urge or seek to persuade in a dramatic fashion, following the manner of some presenters, but suggests simple, small steps that lead to perceptible progress. The results can be seen in terms of peace of mind and heart and a growing confidence that God is aware and will assist where needed. Wherever you find yourself, Allen assures you can move toward an even better place, gradually and certainly. I am confident that anyone who walks in his guidance for the suggested 100 days will be able to share their own convincing story of growth.”
—Carl George, author and church growth consultant, Greenville, SC
“When I think of a ‘strong and steady’ kind of faith, not easily quenched by fear, I think of the faith of men like Allen Jackson. If you’ve always wanted a wise mentor to disciple you in your spiritual journey, a personal Gandolf of sorts to help guide you through the wilderness of life’s challenges, you’ve found him, and in this book, he’s going to share his ancient secrets with you. Get ready for your faith to become more intentional, more real, and more solid.”
—Kirk Cameron, actor and filmmaker best known for Growing Pains and #1 grossing inspirational film of 2008, Fireproof
“Allen Jackson is a rare megachurch pastor in that he is a humble man with a true servant’s heart. He doesn’t put a spotlight on himself or his ministry but on Christ. The World Outreach Church he pastors is properly named for what it does, which is to touch the world through its myriad of ministries and missions around the globe. In his new book, Intentional Faith, he takes the reader on a challenging journey to align one’s life with the Word of God. When some pastors are trying to be popular or ‘relevant,’ Allen Jackson focuses on sticking to the Scripture and living a life that doesn’t escape challenges but powers through them. If you want to move from ‘occasional’ to ‘intentional’ in your Christian walk, this book will be a guide to get there!”
—Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas, 2008 presidential candidate, New York Times bestselling author, and host of a popular weekly talk show Huckabee
“In Allen Jackson’s Intentional Faith, you will receive Godly wisdom on how to grow in your faith in the Lord; therefore, you will create an environment in your home, your health, your business, and your relationships that allows God to work through you more efficiently and more noticeably. We all want God to give us things we want, but all too often we are too lazy and/or unintentional about doing what we should to see those things materialize. Faith is not like asking Santa Claus for a Christmas gift just one time and it magically showing up under the tree. Although we can’t earn God’s love and blessings, we can boldly ask for and welcome them by praying more, reading the Bible more, and loving and forgiving others more. In other words, we stand a better chance of receiving them by having an ‘intentional faith.’”
—Josh Turner, American country and gospel singer best known for songs “Long Black Train” and “Your Man,” songwriter, and actor
“Pastor Allen Jackson is a true example to me of faithfulness and humility, so I’m delighted he’s written this book drawing on his real wisdom on how to effect meaningful spiritual change in our lives. Faith without action is no real faith; this book is a warm invitation to the real thing.”
