God’s Amazing Normal is about the amazing impact that happens when Christ’s followers get beyond their paralyzing self-focus, join Christ in His mission, and become intentional about being Christ’s light into their own communities.
“The message of this book comes from my life experience as a pastor. I shepherded a church where healthy believers expected to be involved in seeing others come to Christ. And it worked! The church was joyful because when there are new spiritual children life is always exciting and challenging.” ~ Larry DeWitt
In 1976, Larry DeWitt, his wife, Beccy, three kids and a dog headed west to Southern California with a dream . . . to create a fresh model of church life in America that was Christ centered, Bible based, culturally relevant, and outreach oriented. God honored that dream. Calvary Community Church became one of the nation’s leading models for the boomer generation . . . reaching literally thousands of families for Christ.
After nearly 30 years as senior pastor of Calvary, Larry launched Cornerstone Network. The ministry of Cornerstone is based on the premise that our ultimate mission is to connect people to Jesus Christ as the Cornerstone of life.
Larry also served as a national facilitator of pastoral ministries with Mission America Coalition, whose focus is to help leaders/pastors work together and “love their communities to Christ.” In this capacity Larry has challenged and encouraged church leaders in more than 20 communities across the nation to a have a united focus on Christ and to engage every believer in an intentional lifestyle of:
• praying for people by name
• caring by serving and loving
• sharing when natural opportunities arise.
