What happens when a former teenage atheist hears God's call to do the impossible--and decides to act on it?

In this riveting true story, Brian Barcelona recounts how, just a few months after graduation, he responded to God's directive and returned to his high school campus to preach the Gospel to the students. He had no training, no resources, and no experience. Just raw passion and obedience.

Suddenly lives began to be changed. Teens from every background were healed of suicidal thoughts, the trauma of physical and sexual abuse, drug addiction, identity crises and much more. Hearts were saved. Entire families were healed. The Jesus Club's numbers grew, and soon other schools joined in. From one simple act of obedience, thousands of teens were, and still are, letting Jesus heal their lives.

And this is only the beginning of the story! God is moving powerfully in our nation's high schools. And if you are willing, you, too, can be part of the revival that is transforming a generation.

"The Jesus Club will ignite within you a greater passion for Jesus and an unstoppable faith to see God move in the lives of students."
-Banning Liebscher, founder and pastor, Jesus Culture

"This book can only be understood as a storyline straight from the pen of the Author of our faith. Read, and watch hope explode in your soul. God's not done with America!"
-Lou Engle, co-founder, TheCall

The Cross Focused Reviewers share their thoughts on The Jesus Club: Incredible True Stories of How God Is Moving in Our High Schools by Brian Barcelona (Chosen Books, 2017).

“I really enjoyed learning how God has worked through Brian. Thousands of students in both northern California and Los Angeles have become followers of Christ through his ministry. Inspiring stories of the different ways God brought this about fill this book. Gang members, atheists, and ordinary kids alike have turned their lives over to Christ after hearing the good news about Him. The author’s enthusiasm for making this happen in all the high schools in America is exciting, and I highly recommend this easy to read, uplifting 5-star book.”

“This is the generation that we need to get into our churches, to make them into our future leaders.. If one man can turn his obedience to God into a success like this why can’t we all?”

“It’s sad to see so many high schoolers choosing to follow their peers in a direction that does not lead them to Christ. Bombarded with social media and selfish ideas, many adolescents choose a path that exalts self rather than Christ. It was encouraging to read this testimony book, The Jesus Club, where Brian Barcelona tells of the good things the Lord did with a surrendered heart and a group of teenagers.”

“God’s usage of Brian Barcelona to minter to youth in their own context gives me renewed strength as I minister to the youth in my own area on their turf in their context.”

“I loved this book and would recommend it for every youth worker. And I would also recommend it for all believers who want to see where the Holy Spirit is moving right now in America. Students are not all lost and narcissistic instead God is on the move, and I for one want to join Him. You should too.”
