Bestselling author and influential pastor Chris Hodges offers Christians a practical guide for what to do next to deepen their faith.

The journey toward deeper faith and spiritual maturity is a lifelong pursuit, with plenty of stops and bumps along the way. Inevitably, there comes a point when Christians--new believers and veterans in the faith alike--find themselves asking, "What do I do next? How do I stay motivated to grow deeper in my relationship with God when I feel complacent, intimidated, or confused? What can I do to get back on track when I hit a spiritual rut?"

In What's Next?, Chris Hodges reveals the four steps to spiritual maturity: knowing God, finding freedom, discovering purpose, and making a difference. He shows how they are part of both a linear path and a cycle that Christians continue returning to at increasingly deeper levels as they grow. Accessible and clear, concise and profound, What's Next? is a trail guide leading to a deeper and more intimate relationship with the Father and the joy that comes from the journey.


Chris Hodges is the founding and senior pastor of Church of the Highlands. Under his leadership, Church of the Highlands has launched campuses all across the state of Alabama and has grown to more than 45,000 people attending weekly. He also cofounded the Association of Related Churches, launched a coaching network called GROW, and serves as chancellor of Highlands College, a two-year ministry training college. Chris and his wife, Tammy, have five children and live in Birmingham, Alabama.




“If I could recommend one book to help people walk out their faith with more genuine closeness to God, this would be it. My friend, Pastor Chris Hodges, has given us an important, treasured resource that should be on every bookshelf. This isn’t a book that should just be read once—it’s one that should be referred to and taught from over and over again.”
