Where are you? Life is uncertain. Skyscrapers crash and so do stock markets. Bodies get broken, and so do relationships. Our health declines and marriages fail. Ground Zero brings us to places where we see how little is in our control, and how God still gives people a second chance to bounce back in life.
Life at Ground Zero is a book that offers hands on help to those who are down and out, despondent and depressed by the down turn of events in their lives. My first real test in ministry came 10 years ago when I was called to pastor a little store-front church that was on the verge of closing. At the time, the memebrship was composed of 7 people, and many told me that I would not last as the church's pastor. But God allowed that little church of 7 committed men and women to increase to 150 in less than three years. From that place of zero, the Lord was orchestrating his plan to add five other church plants in the U.S., the Caribbean and a school in the Philippines, from a church that had its bouts with zeros. I believe unequivocally that God can use you even at that place where it seems that you are down to nothing.
