Seeing Jesus in East Harlem
What Happens When Churches Show Up and Stay Put
IVP Readers' Choice Award
We are all located in different places. And the way we grow as disciples and lead others in spiritual growth depends on our contexts.
Pastor Jos Humphreys recognizes how deeply our faith is tied to our particular stories in our particular places. Grounded in his own deep faith and wisdom, he writes out of his experiences as a Puerto Rican pastor who has planted a multiethnic church in East Harlem. In this book, he offers a framework to help church leaders take discipleship seriously in their places, calling them to show up, stay put, and see what God is doing in their midst. Combining spiritual formation with activism, vivid narrative with exhortation, and realism with hopefulness, Humphreys offers pastors and church planters a thoughtful look at discipleship in a complex world.
