During his time as a pastor, Rev. Bouwman has written a number of different books that are both uplifting and insightful. Some of these books are offered here as downloadable PDF’s for your enjoyment.

Leadership for Growing Churches

Would a book on how to lead a successful business answer the question of how to grow a church? The Apostle Paul would think not. Taking seriously God’s instruction in the Scriptures Paul had, the apostle instructed Titus what he had to do to grow the church in Crete well–and it was not to follow a business model.

A Vow to Love

Rev. Clarence Bouwman takes us through the Bible to discern what God’s plan for marriage initially was, how the fall into sin has twisted marriage, and how God’s plan has been restored through the work of the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Privilege of Parenting

Rev. Clarence Bouwman draws out that God Himself has formed a bond of love with the children He has entrusted to believing parents, and so these parents receive a most privileged function in God’s kingdom – training the next generation of little ones to know their Father in heaven .
