Barefoot Church by Brandon Hatmaker

Within these 175 pages is a book on being missional that goes beyond theory. The personal stories from Hatmaker and the practical ideas presented is what every leader and layperson could ask for.

Every pastor wants his church to be big on outreach. Often their congregation says the same thing yet wanting to keep things the way they've always been. Opting for the chance that they could convince the nonchurched to become more like the churched before they have to change.

Barefoot Church offers nice ideas to spark the creativity on how your church can reach the community by serving the poor and partnering with those inside the area companies.

Hatmaker will explain how churches need to create a new metric for success, enjoy the tension that outreach creates, and allowing one's understanding of discipleship bloom from the tired description it currently carries.

May you use this book to encourage you in how the church can get back to authentically following Jesus.
