Author Jeff Petherick To Appear on HOUR OF POWER This Weekend
Author, philanthropist and financial expert Jeff Petherick will appear on the December 30 episode of Hour of Power. The episode with Petherick previously had been scheduled to air this weekend (November 24 and 25), but has been rescheduled due to technical difficulties at Hour of Power.
During Petherick's segment, he discusses his new book, Grace Like Rain: Soaking Up God's Best, Even When We're At Our Worst, which was released July 17 by Elk Lake Publishing and New Day Christian Distributors. Petherick's appearance on Hour of Power, where he is interviewed by Pastor Robert V. (Bobby) Schuller at the Crystal Cathedral, can be viewed on TBN/The Church Channel, Time Warner, Cox Cable, Lifetime and The Oxygen Network, which begins airing Hour of Power December 1, (check local listings for channel and time) and online at hourofpower.org.

"Petherick's book on grace is one of the best books on the subject," says Schuller. "His shocking prose will bring new life to a word that often feels tired. You will experience grace as the most important, all-encompassing aspect of your life. I would recommend it to anyone in my church community."
"I am excited to be a guest on Hour of Power. We all experience difficult times in our lives and organizations, and it is only through God's grace that we can come to experience the abundant life of peace, joy and love that God has in store for us," Petherick says. "My book, Grace Like Rain, was born out of one of the most uncertain periods of my life when God was teaching me incredible lessons on grace. I can't help but think that is a message which will resonate with the audience of Hour of Power."
Grace Like Rain, which follows the release of Petherick's publishing debut, Wavelength: Tuning In To God's Voice In A World of Static, examines the most powerful and perhaps most misunderstood power in the universe - God's grace - through real-life accounts about a God who did the unthinkable to save the unlovable.
Throughout Grace Like Rain, Petherick writes about grace in action, how God wants people to take the grace they have received and pass it on to others. In the book, he shares gripping stories of people surprised by grace and changed forever.
"Grace is transformative, not only to our lives individually, but to those around us. When we begin to understand this and receive it as a gift, we become empowered to show that grace to others in our lives," says Petherick, a successful investment manager who has been featured as a financial expert by the likes of CNBC and Forbes. Petherick also is a philanthropist who is in demand as a Christian speaker and teacher.
"Jesus told us to be 'light.' However, light without grace is like a light bulb without a filament," Petherick continues. "We will have no ability to illuminate truth without the power of love and grace. Grace Like Rain helps us see how God has used the brokenness and sinfulness of ordinary people to transform them into true light bearers for Him."
Grace Like Rain is published by Elk Lake Publishing and is distributed exclusively to the CBA market through New Day Christian Distributors. For more information about Petherick, Grace Like Rain or Elk Lake Publishing, visit ElkLakePublishing.com.

About Jeff Petherick:
In his writing debut, Wavelength, Petherick shared with readers his stressful world as a rising star mutual fund manager in the 1990s, often finding himself in the role of expert for such weighty financial news organizations as The Wall Street Journal, Barron's, CNBC, Forbes and Kiplinger's Personal Finance. He went on to become founding partner in NorthPointe Capital, an institutional investment management firm with $1.5 billion in assets under management.
Following a life-altering encounter with Jesus Christ, Petherick embarked on many adventures with God, putting feet to his faith in such ventures as co-founding Impact India 360, which in the last eight years has built an orphanage, several schools, an elderly care facility, a church and a hospital.
Impact India 360 also offers college scholarships to village children and is involved in church-planting efforts throughout the region.
Petherick's work with Impact India 360 recently was featured in The Dancer, an award-winning short film garnering more than 15 awards, including First Place, Documentary Short, at the 2011 Los Angeles International Film Festival and Best of Fest/Grand Jury Award (out of 1650 films) at the 2011 San Francisco International Festival of Short Films. The Dancer shows life through the eyes of Satish Kumar, an 11-year-old orphan boy in a remote village in India. After the death of Kumar's mother and abandonment by his father, the youth now lives with 200 other children at the Dowlaiswaram, India, orphanage funded by Impact India 360.
Since beginning his walk with the Lord, Petherick's many adventures have included leading high school and college students on multiple mission trips to minister to the indigenous people of Iquitos, Peru, in the Amazon Rainforest.
Petherick is married to his high school sweetheart, Gina. They live in Michigan and have two children and one grandchild.
About the Crystal Cathedral and Hour of Power:
The ministry behind the weekly Hour of Power televised service began in 1955 when a young pastor, the Rev. Robert H. Schuller, moved to California from the Midwest with $500 in his pocket as seed money from his denomination. After researching many options, he began his church by preaching from a snack bar roof on Sunday mornings in the Orange Drive-in Theatre in Orange, Calif. As the ministry grew, the church moved to Garden Grove, Calif., first to a chapel, then to a new location and sanctuary in 1961 designed by renowned architect Richard Neutra.
In 1970, on the advice of Rev. Billy Graham, Hour of Power began televising from the Garden Grove Community Church. In 1980, the congregation moved into the Crystal Cathedral, the current home of Hour of Power.
Each week, more than 20 million people around the world tune in for unique and original messages that encourage each viewer to live a life filled with possibilities...to become the positive, hope-filled person God designed them to be.
