Overview

No Matter Where you are in life, you can serve God right there. In this revised and updated edition of An Army of Ordinary People, church planter Felicity Dale shows how God has always used-and is still using-ordinary believers like you to carry out His work in simple ways throughout the world.

This inspiring collection of real-life stories introduces you to ordinary people who've practiced "simple church"-in their own homes, workplaces, or neighborhoods-and the remarkable things that have happened as a result. You'll meet people instrumental in leading others to God-even helping to free them from addictions or the stigma of their criminal pasts; parents teaching bible lessons to kids; a couple inviting their neighbors over for dinner and conversation. You'll see the gospel spreading, and lives being changed.

And the only question remaining is: Are you ready for your own story to begin?
