Being a misfit 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 24-hour church that ministers to 35,000 hurting people a week, Barnett has seen a little of everything. Gangsters, addicts, orphans, taggers, cutters, the sick, the suffering, the hopeless . . . all the misfits of the world come through the church's doors in search of hope.
But when Barnett first arrived in LA, it was he who felt like the misfit. In Misfits Welcome, Pastor Barnett shares the simple, life-changing lesson he has learned from twenty years of ministering to the forgotten: Being a misfit prepares you to do the work of the Lord. Misfits Welcome is not just about embracing the misfits around us—it is about embracing the misfits within us, and channeling our inner misfit for the glory of God.
