Endorsements

Another book by Chester and Timmis that is full of biblical insight and much practical wisdom for daily, street-level ministry in our Western culture today.
-Timothy Keller,
Senior Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City

I was deeply convicted and excited after reading Total Church, so it was great to see the principles of that book further developed in Everyday Church. Because these principles are so clearly biblical, they are therefore not optional—which means we must all find ways to live out these truths if the church is to be the radiant bride she was meant to be. I look forward to the new joy that believers will experience as they pursue church as described in this book.
-Francis Chan,
New York Times best-selling author, Crazy Love and Forgotten God

Chester and Timmis have once again challenged us to think differently and diligently about gospel-centered community and gospel-centered mission, and in so doing have given us in Everyday Church some answers of how to engage the growing chasm between the church and world with faithfulness to the Gospel.
-Matt Chandler,
Lead Pastor, The Village Church; President, Acts 29 Church Planting Network; author, The Explicit Gospel

There are few whom God uses to rattle my bones about true gospel focus, few who can help me to organize and declutter the simple and sacrificial applications of the cross like Tim Chester and Steve Timmis. God has raised them up to help us to see the work of the church through a lens of soul conformity. God uses them to give us clear sight of why the church exists and what our gospel-empowered focus should resemble. Any church of any size and any location can hit the ground running with the biblically rich and accessible truths that resound from Everyday Church.
-Eric M. Mason,
Lead Pastor, Epiphany Fellowship, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Chester and Timmis remind us that Christianity is no longer at the epicenter of Western culture; it has’ drifted to the margins. As sobering as this reality is, I found myself inspired and hopeful while reading Everyday Church. After all, Christianity began on the margins yet became a juggernaut that changed its world. If you’re tired of the ‘same old, same old’ when it comes to church, and you long for something that pierces and transforms culture, then Everyday Church is for you.
-Bryan Loritts,
Lead Pastor, Fellowship Memphis, Memphis, Tennessee
