A very inspiring book. A little light theologically (but that's just me...they do claim to be part of the Assemblies of God after all.)

This is a book of their ministry in Los Angeles. It sounds amazing and I hope God blesses it mightily.

The Church That Never Sleeps by Matthew Barnett is the story of The Dream Center and it's ministries to the inner city of Los Angeles CA. Rev Barnett arrives to a church that is all but dead. It has no real connection to the inner city around it. No outreach to the people.

Inspiring. Worth reading.

An ok book that taught me some interesting points.a little confusing book that talked about way to many things at the same time. Would have been better if he could have caught some few important points and then gone in depth with those in a practical way.
I respect and love the ministry of Dream Center and Matthew Barnett, but this book could for me have been better and more organized.

This book tells the remarkable story of a young man who dared to dream that the inner city could be different. He gave the city of LA his heart and hard work and trusted God to take care of the details. As a result God has done some great things through the Dream Center in LA. This book will inspire you to dream big and to never limit God and what he can do!

Great testimony of how the Dream Center in Los Angeles came to be. I totally admire Matthew's courage to start a ministry in the gang infested neighbourhoods of Los Angeles. His story is very inspiring and even more so encouraging! If you're even vaguely thinking of starting a ministry, read this book!
