Is the church in America asleep? Are we too eager to “run home and watch Netflix” rather than engage the lost in our own communities? In this extended interview, Jennie meets with “Pastor X,” a Western man married to a former radical Muslim who now, together, disciple believers in the Middle East. They are witnesses to, and part of, the underground church of the East that sparked the fastest movement of Christianity in the world—and it’s coming to America. Are we ready? Are we willing to join them?
