Product Description

* Jesus' command to "serve the least" is a biblical mandate often neglected by the church. How can today's congregations be catalysts for social renewal? Calling the church to lead the change, Hatmaker shows that serving the poor isn't a trendy act of benevolence but a gospel-centered lifestyle that can spark spiritual transformation and build authentic community. 208 pages, softcover from Zondervan.

Publisher's Description

People are hungry to make a difference in their community, yet most don’t know where to start. In fact, “serving the least” is often one of the most neglected biblical mandates in the church. Barefoot Church shows readers how today’s church can be a catalyst for individual, collective, and social renewal in any context. Whether pastors or laypeople, readers will discover practical ideas that end up being as much about the Gospel and personal transformation as they are about serving the poor. Here they will see how the organizational structure of the church can be created or redesigned for mission in any context. Drawing from his own journey, Brandon Hatmaker proves to readers that serving the least is not a trendy act of benevolence but a lifestyle of authentic community and spiritual transformation. As Hatmaker writes, “My hope is that God would open our eyes more and more to the needs of our community. And that we would see it as the church’s responsibility to lead the charge.”

After years of serving in the megachurch, Brandon and his wife, Jen, refocused their ministry on church planting and mobilizing the church to meet the needs of the poor and marginalized. Together, ANC and Restore Austin have developed a unique network of churches and non-profits that serve in a collective effort to impact their city and world.

    I loved this book and the concept is great. If every church took this concept to heart we would see a revival, not just the christian community but in America.
