The Study...

Serving the Least in a Consumer Culture
Zondervan / Leadership Network / Exponential Series


People are hungry to make a difference, yet most don't know where to start. In fact, 'Serving the Least' is often one of the most neglected biblical mandates in the church. Barefoot Church shows readers how today's church can be a catalyst for individual, collective, and social renewal in any context. Whether pastors or laypeople, readers will discover practical ideas that end up being as much about the Gospel and personal transformation as they are about serving the poor.

BAREFOOT CHURCH PRIMER: An 8-wk Guide to Serving
Missio Publishing


In Barefoot Church, we read stories of a church that has learned the essential power of serving the poor. We read of the ways that this changed hearts, both the server and the served, and the deep lessons that it taught those who pressed in with humility and determination.

In the Barefoot Church Primer, we’ll look at ways to apply those lessons in the context of a small group or community. It will be a challenging, risky, and ultimately deeply satisfying adventure as we work together to grow and become what God has made us to be.
