WE CAN CHANGE THE CITY TOGETHER

We need a bigger vision for the city.

It’s not enough to plant individual churches in


isolation from each other. The spiritual need
and opportunity of our cities is too big for any
one church to meet alone. Pastors Neil Powell
and John James contend that to truly transform
a city, the gospel compels us to create localized,
collaborative church-planting movements. They
share lessons learned and principles discovered
from their experiences leading a successful
citywide movement. The more willing we
are to collaborate across denominations and
networks, the more effectively we will reach our
communities—whatever their size—for Jesus.

Come discover what God can do in our cities

MAPPING A JOURNEY
HOLY GROUND OF LISTENING

In this memoir, lifelong minister of the gospel


Leighton Ford tells his story as a personal his-
tory of listening for God’s voice. Beginning
with his earliest memories, he recounts the
different ways God has spoken to him and the
different ways he has learned to listen. Through
the joys of ministry, first as an international
evangelist, often in partnership with Billy
Graham, and later as a leader of the Lausanne
Movement and a mentor of emerging leaders, he
remembers God’s voice proclaiming, instruct-
ing, and reassuring. Through the pain of deep
loss, he remembers God’s voice calling out to
him, even in the deafening silence.

What emerges is not just an account of a long
