Darrin Patrick is pastor of the Journey, a church he founded in 2002 in the urban core of St. Louis, Missouri. Darrin is vice president of Acts 29 Church Planting Network. He also serves as the chaplain of the St. Louis Cardinals. He earned his doctor of ministry from Covenant Seminary and has written two books: Church Planter and For the City.
Joel A. Lindsey is the pastor of theology and care and a teaching elder at the Journey Church in St. Louis, Missouri. He lives in Webster Groves, Missouri, where he and his wife Melissa are raising their three sons, Eli, Beckett, and Schaeffer.
Both authors are gifted writers, and I found the relatively short book highly engaging throughout.
This book gives a great overview on how to take the Gospel and live it outwardly for the city and the world to see in both word and deed.
Highly recommend this book for anyone who has been called to plant a church in an urban environment.
