Huntington native Rick Harris has written a new faith-based book, “Life Stones,” that will be introduced in the November issue of the Huntington College Alumni magazine.

His book is being released with a “soft” book launch on Thursday, Nov. 7, with book signings from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Sweetwater Sound in Fort Wayne. Harris’ first public book signing will be Saturday, Nov. 16, from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Huntington City-Township Public Library.

“Life Stones” is a faith-based book that begins with the story of David and Goliath and reveals the “stones” that we need to possess and perfect to destroy the “giants” that life tends to be filled with. Each of the 28 chapters concludes with several questions for discussion so it lends itself well to a Sunday School format, small group study, mentoring, personal devotional times or self-enrichment.

Harris was born, raised and educated in Huntington, graduating from Huntington North High School in 1968 and Huntington University in 1972. He has served more than 40 years as a senior pastor, missionary, youth pastor and church consultant. He is a former senior pastor of Alliance Community Church and former youth pastor at Broadway Christian Church, both in Fort Wayne.

Harris is the president and executive director of Life Stones Ministries, a non-profit which provides encouragement and support to churches and faith groups desiring to experience real and sustainable victory over the challenges and obstacles that are encountered in life.
He and his wife Pat currently reside in Fort Wayne, and have three children and eight grandchildren.
