My book explores who the church is called to go out into the world and take risks for the sake of the Gospel. In an age when fewer people have a connection to a church than in the last 20 years, the church must once again seek out fresh ways to connect to people on the margins of the church. Our faith communities must try creative models to connect with our neighbors, to serve our neighbors, and to love our neighbors. We need a renewed entrepreneurial spirit that will call us to step out of our comfort zones, to reach beyond the four walls of our buildings, and go share the Gospel again through one-on-one and small group relationships of trust. My book offers some principles for this kind of “on the edge” ministry, and it includes stories of trailblazers who have taken on a risk for mission on the margins.
