New Book Coming from Cascade Publishing House
Cascade Publishing House is pleased to announce that it will publish I Didn’t Want to Do It: A Memoir From Sin to Mega-Church Builder by Donald Earl Bryant. This memoir is Bryant’s first book. He recently retired from the pulpit at Friendship Community Church in Atlanta, Georgia. Friendship is a debt-free mega-church he organized on faith in 1997.
The memoir will chronicle Bryant’s journey from partying with the Commodores and Tom Joyner at the Black Forest Inn when they were students at Tuskegee Institute to his call to preach, and the vision he received from God to build a mega-church just weeks into his first pastorage.
I Didn’t Want to do It is slated for a fall release.
“We are pleased to receive the opportunity to publish Dr. Bryant’s memoir,” Harold Michael Harvey, Cascade Publishing House, publisher said.
Harvey said Cascade Publishing House (CPH) received a referral from Dr. Charles Steele, Jr., President, and CEO of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. CPH published Steele’s book, Easier to Obtain than to Maintain: The Globalization of Civil Rights in 2016.
“We are a small publishing house and we appreciate the referral from Dr. Steele. We rely on word of mouth advertisement,” Harvey said.
“I fell in love with the manuscript right away. This book is beneficial to anyone interested in the ministry and has a desire to build and manage the human dynamics of a mega-church,” Harvey said.
The reader will get an inside look into the politics involved in leading a church, and therefore it is of benefit to the laity as well as members doing ministry.
Bryant’s book will be the tenth book published by Cascade Publishing House since its 2011 inception.
