Lasting change is possible?and this book will show you how.
Readers from all backgrounds identify with how difficult it is to change. But not everyone understands the special struggles for those trying to break free from addiction, abuse, and habitually bad choices. These people know that willpower alone won?t work. In God's Dream for You, pastor Matthew Barnett shares true stories and testimonies of people whose lives hit rock bottom. But through the guidance and direction at the Dream Center in Los Angeles, where they learned about the power and love of Jesus, these brave souls broke free from their bondage and now live brand-new lives.
Discussing several key topics such as the surprising first step to real change and the secret to making change last, this book is an excellent resource of hope and inspiration for those who, whatever their situation, want to discover God's dream for their life.
Matthew Barnett, founder of the Los Angeles Dream Center, best-selling author and pastor of one of America's fasting growing churches, is one of the most dynamic voices God is using in Christianity today. He is the son of Pastor Tommy Barnett, best-selling author and pastor of, what Time Magazine considers, one of the three largest churches in America.
The Dream Center houses close to 600 people who are being rehabilitated for the glory of God. Through its 40 services and nearly 200 ministries they reach over 40,000 people a week with food and many other services that meet the spiritual and physical needs of the local community. As of September 2003, there have been over 150 Dream Centers launched around the world.
In 2001, the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel's Angelus Temple united with the Dream Center and Pastor Barnett is now the senior pastor of both with a weekly congregation in excess of 7,000.
Pastor Matthew has won numerous awards including the Religious Heritage Award and the church has been recognised several times for its contribution to the community. Former President George W. Bush has personally endorsed Ps Barnett with highest regards for his achievements.
Pastor Barnett is married to Caroline and they have one daughter, Mia Aimee and a son, Caden West.
