Publisher's Summary

Rosario Picardo was a recently divorced and slightly jaded ex-Marine when he heeded God's call to plant "a church for broken people". This book chronicles the struggles and triumphs of Embrace Church, from its beginnings in his basement as a rare urban church plant to a multi-campus congregation that reaches hundreds of folks broken by poverty, burned by Christians, and in need of healing grace. By telling his story, Picardo hopes to inform, inspire, and encourage seminary students, future church planters, and any Christian committed to expanding the body of Christ among marginalized people in urban areas. Alongside relevant data and theological insights, Picardo shares the practical lessons he learned, as well as personal journal entries about his internal struggles, in order to offer a comprehensive glimpse into not only the need for new church plants, but the difficulties and opportunities that exist in this sort of ministry.

What the Critics Say

"Embrace is a lively, personal account of Rosario Picardo's experience planting a new church. Rich with anecdotes and theological overtones, this book is packed with inspiration and practical information for church planters and others who are boldly committed to making disciples of Jesus Christ in the twenty-first century." (Wendy J. Deichmann, President, United Theological Seminary, Ohio)
