4prioroties HOMEThe Four Priorities
by Dr. John Tolson and Larry Kreider
Through a creative mix of case studies and scriptural illustrations, The Four Priorities presents an easy-to-understand model for balancing the four priorities of Christ, self, relationships, and the world.

We help people grow in
committed relationship
with Christ, with self,
with others, and with
their community.
It is through faithful,
growing relationships
in these four areas
that we live fulfilled and
meaningful lives.
Life isn’t meant to be lived
for us alone. We are to take what
we have learned
and reproduce that in the
life of someone else.
