When one of the co-pastors of SouledOut Community Church passes away suddenly, Avis and Peter are asked to step in and assist with the leadership of the church in the interim. but that creates an all-black leadership, fanning some subtle racial issues in their multi-cultural church. As tensions mount, they wrestle with returning to a traditional church where things would be easier.
Meanwhile, Kate Blanchard arrives in urban Chicago with three friends. Their vision of radically following Jesus--from dressing in second-hand clothes to trying to live green--only adds to the unrest at SouledOut Community Church. When Kate attaches herself to Avis as a mentor, Kate's good heart but lack of wisdom drives Avis nuts. Before long they realize that the body of Christ needs all parts--and Avis will see that she needs Kate's joy in following Jesus as much as Kate needs Avis' wisdom.

When Kat discovers SouledOut Community Church, she longs to become a part of the multicultural church family. But her tendency to immediately say whatever shes thinking steps on the toes of nearly everyone she meetsespecially Avis Douglass.
Avis has a strong faith, is the principal of one of Chicagos highest performing elementary schools, and is a founding member of SouledOut. But the countrys economic downturn has thrown both her and her husbands jobs in question. And Avis hasnt heard from her youngest daughter in monthsan estrangement that gnaws at her every day. Where is God in this?
Kats flamboyant zeal for living a radical Christian life is a stark contrast to Aviss more reserved faith. But in Gods timing, the two women discover they need each other in ways neither of them expected.
