Jesus called us to "serve the least" as a way of life. Yet we often reduce serving to a once a month program or seasonal event. Whether you are a pastor or a layperson, here you will find simple, reproducible strategies that will move your church from good intentions to compassionate action.
^^^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:Serving the Least in a Consumer Culture^ 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."
