- “Truth Serum is a reminder for all preachers to re-align their ministries—by way of examination in clear focus—with the person and work of Jesus in Scripture. This is a practical guide for re-calibrating tenured ministries and simultaneously, a handbook for young ministers called to a new pastorate. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life from whom flows power, authority, and anointing for transformational preaching ministry. Truth Serum illuminates his method, his rhythm, his ways—a must read for today’s preacher!”
President Mission One, Scottsdale AZ.
- “Gary Hewins is one of my closest friends and a pastor whom I admire. Gary and I served together for several years in pastoral ministry at Mount Paran Church. He provided me invaluable support and encouragement. He highly values the preaching of the word of God both to redeem the lost and to restore the believers. He provides inspiring and informational insights into the dynamics of preaching in his book Truth Serum in order to help us become better preachers. This book will help you stay on track in a day where people are being blown back and forth by every wind of teaching. He challenges us to remember that our highest calling and purpose in ministry is to ‘preach the word’ (2 Tim 4:2).”
Dr. David Cooper, Lead Pastor Mount Paran Church, Atlanta, GA.
- “I have had the honor and blessing of sitting under the teaching and tutoring of some amazing Pastors. Gary Hewins is one of them! Gary is an amazingly valued and impactful “sharp iron” in my life…our summer Pastor for about 8 years in Highlands, NC. As I read Truth Serum, it sounded just like the Gary I have grown to love and respect… bold, Christ and scripture centric, respectful and powerful truth teller, graceful challenger, desiring God’s best for me and the body of Christ, passionately unpacking the full counsel of God. Gary does not play around the edges of God’s truth, or the power of the Trinity! ”

“Truth Serum is a refreshing call back to building our ministries and our preaching on biblical clarity and the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. It is a needed reminder that preaching is not the same thing as delivering a speech or impressing people with our ability to communicate. Thank you, Gary, for speaking the truth in love. What a gift!”
-Dr. Crawford W. Loritts, Jr. Author, Radio Host, Sr. Pastor Fellowship Bible Church, Roswell, Georgia
When it comes to preaching many want to discuss techniques. The audible, the visible the responsible and the tangible aspects of preaching and teaching are all important.
“Many focus on the number of members in a church. More important is the number of ministers. A preacher’s job in part is to prepare God’s people for works of service. The people build the church. Biblical preaching yields biblical results.”- Pastor Gary
