He has authored “Elders and Leaders: God’s Plan for Leading the Church” and he and his son, Kenton, have recently completed a book entitled “The Measure of a Young Man.” He has also authored the “Men of Character” series published by Broadman and Holman. These books feature “Principles to Live By” that come from the lives of biblical personalities both in the Old and New Testaments. 

Dr. Getz also hosts a daily radio program called Renewal which is aired nationally and is designed to unfold personal stories of people who have been transformed by the love and grace of Jesus Christ. Renewal can be heard daily on Sirius/SM Family Net Radio. 

Dr. Getz now serves as President of the Center for Church Renewal and has just completed a 7-year Bible project using the Holman Christian Standard Bible. The “Life Essentials Study Bible” is the first Multi-Media Study Bible which contains 1,500 principles from Genesis to Revelation. Using QR codes associated with each biblical principle, the reader can access over 250 hours of video teaching on these principles by Dr. Getz. He also airs a 2-minute daily feature on the Moody Radio Network called “A Principle to Live By” which can also be accessed by going to LEBible.com.
