Product Description

Many church leaders and other people of faith feel constrained by time-worn strategies, tactics, and attitudes. Unwritten rules of how to do church seem to force us into neat and tidy patterns. But new ideas and methods are bubbling up in all corners of the Church, and new leaders are taking risks, creating opportunities, and rewriting their communities' definition of church. One such leader is author Scott Chrostek. In The Misfit Mission, Chrostek describes what it looks like for us to do the right thing in ministry, even when logic or 'rules' say it's the wrong thing. He shows how we really can do more than we might ask or imagine, when we remember God's call and the promises of scripture - when we live each day with the expectation of holy surprise.

Chrostek shares inspiring stories from all sorts of people, and often funny, poignant tales from his ministry as church planter and campus pastor of The Church of the Resurrection Downtown, in urban Kansas City. He illustrates how people can uncover their innate passion for knowing and serving Christ, and how a church can become an integral part of the community. The misfit mission is God's own creative, surprising, crazy-beautiful way, and this book proves how we can be a part of it!
