The Jesus Club-Brian Barcelona-Book Spotlight

About the book (from Amazon's discription)
How a Simple Act of Obedience Is Igniting Revival in Our Nation's Schools
What happens when a teenage convert from atheism hears a challenge from the Lord--and decides to act on it? This true story is the catalyst for a move of God that is taking the high schools of America for Jesus.

Brian Barcelona, a dynamic leader on the forefront of youth evangelism, recounts how he answered God's call on his life with dramatic and miraculous results. Just a few months out of high school, Brian obeyed God's directive to return to his alma mater and preach the gospel to the kids in the Bible club. Suddenly lives began to be changed. Hearts were saved. Numbers grew. Soon other schools joined in, sparking a youth revival in which thousands of teens are letting Jesus heal their lives.

This remarkable story will inspire you to reach out to others, particularly young people, and believe that God will equip you for the call he gives you. Let your heart be energized through simple acts of obedience and watch as God does mighty things!

About the author... (provided by TBN)

Brian Barcelona is the visionary and founder of One Voice Student Missions. 

He was a former atheist who at age 16 had a love encounter with God that changed his life forever. Brian’s passion is to see every high school student in the nation heard The Good News and be saved, discipled and sent. 

One Voice Student Missions was founded in Northern California with Brian and a group of high school students. He started by preaching the Gospel in their high schools and began seeing thousands saved. Bible Clubs were growing as big as 600 students, gathering every week during lunch in various campuses. 

Now, Brian is a voice that calls the youth of America to surrender their lives to Jesus along with calling the local churches in America to reach their most “unreached mission field” - public high schools. 

He resides in Los Angeles, CA and is under the leadership of Pastor Netz Gomez, the senior pastor of Houses of Light Church in Northridge.

The Forward by Nick Vujicic
The story of how God has used Brian Barcelona in high school campuses through One Voice Student Missions is one that has changed lives of thousands of students across this country.  I personally have seen and believe that now more than ever there is a window of opportunity that we must seize to reach the youth of this nation right where they are every day.  The awakening of local churches to reach youth is happening like never before, and everyone is asking, "How do we reach the next generation?"

One Voice Student Ministries is wisely and strategically using the local church as a focal point to sponsor the mission field where the Good News still can be shared.  While that window remains open,
now is the time of salvation and discipleship!  This book is one I would recommend you read-- to get
inspired but also to realize what is possible and that you can live out these stories in your city campuses as well.  You will be moved, challenged, not to just sit in back in the church seats as "consumers"
but be moved, to go and love students unconditionally.  If you're a student, pastor or leader, I 
encourage everyone to see this model and book of testimonies as a way that we as the body can be unified in our vision to see Jesus lifted high for all to see.
