Being amisfit does not disqualify you from a dynamic life—it prepares you for it.
Matthew Barnett knows a thing or two about misfits.
As founder of the Dream Center in Los Angeles, a twenty-four-hourchurch that ministers to thirty-five thousand hurting people a week, Barnett hasseen a little of everything. Gangsters, addicts, orphans, taggers, cutters, thesick, the suffering, the hopeless—all the misfits of the world come through theDream Center’s doors in search of hope.
But when Barnett first arrived in LA, it was he who felt like the misfit. In Misfits Welcome, he shares the simple, life-changinglesson he has learned from twenty years of ministering to the forgotten: Beinga misfit prepares you to do the work of the Lord.
