Press release for Priscilla and Aquila

Gain Blessings from Serving with Your Spouse

(BIRMINGHAM, Ala.)—January 27, 2011—Priscilla and Aquila made an impact on those they served. So much so they were mentioned numerous times by the Apostle Paul in his writings as examples of servant leadership in the early church. Sadly today many couples serve apart from one another in the church—if they serve at all. By not serving together, those couples miss out on blessings that can only be received through investing in kingdom work as a couple.

Face-to-Face with Priscilla and Aquila (978-1-59669-295-4, N114132, $8.99) explores the importance of serving together and leading together within the context of both the church and everyday life.

“Priscilla and Aquila had their priorities and their house in order and their biblical story can mentor us today in how to graciously serve God and each other,” says Janet Thompson. “God blessed their business, their marriage, and their ministry—and He’ll do the same for anyone who puts the work of God first in their life and relationships.”

Face-to-Face with Priscilla and Aquila is a five-week study that can be used individually, as a couple, or as a small group. It includes content on service and leadership as well as real-life short stories and testimonies.
