Can God use ordinary people to change the world? Join Jeannie Marie, bestselling author and advocate for global outreach, as she teaches us how to follow Jesus to the nations in our neighborhood and around the world.
In the middle of diapers, dishes, papers, or presentations, deep down, we all long to live a life of purpose. In Across the Street and Around the World, Jeannie Marie shows us we can change the world right where we already live, work, play, and study--by learning to grow genuine, spiritually deep friendships with people from other countries, cultures, and faiths.
In her refreshing "you-can-do-this-too" style, Marie leads us by the hand with clear steps, try-it sections, and beautifully crafted prayers. She gently guides us away from common cultural missteps so we can offer Jesus in a winsome way, while honoring culture, faith, and family.
Across the Street and Around the World will give you the tools you need to:
- Engage the world at your doorstep--specifically refugees and international students in your community
- Intentionally cultivate discipleship relationships so that you're encouraging our cross-cultural friends to follow Jesus Christ
- Gain global experience, education, and exposure while building a bridge from the nations in your neighborhood to the ends of the earth
With confidence, courage, and compassion, Jeannie will teach you to start small, start soon, and start somewhere you already are.
Praise for Across the Street and Around the World:
"Jeannie Marie shares a lifetime of invaluable experience with the rest of us. Her book is a treasure trove of insights and practical resources for engaging the nations in our own backyard and to the ends of the earth!"
--David Garrison, author of Church-Planting Movements and Wind in the House of Islam
"A book to pay attention to—whether you are an individual thinking through your life’s purpose, a church leader trying to ensure you lead on mission, or a mission leader navigating these days where everything is changing in your world. Jeannie is adding her experienced and articulate voice to the call for us all to have a fresh look at our efforts to bring the good news of Jesus to the billions who have never heard it or seen it lived out. If you are also serious about that mission, this is a must-read for you."
--Andrew Scott, president and CEO of Operation Mobilization USA and author of Scatter
