Alan Platt is one of the most visionary and strategic minds I have met. When a diversified church is unified in purpose and strategy to serve, it brings change to the city. When a unified church strategically mobilizes every member to be a city changer, people will see and experience God in all spheres of society. It is about new churches, reaching new people, that impact our society. Let the voice from the south influence our thinking and action in the north.

I have the privilege of being on Alan Platt's leadership team at Doxa Deo in South Africa, where Alan Platt consistently inspires us to greater depths of understanding and implementing city transformation. This book will help you see God's perspective on the life and purpose of the church in a glorious new way. I highly recommend City Changers to every Christian leader so every city and town can see the church rise up to be a light that displays the glory of God in every sphere of society.
-Jean Symons, pastor, and leader of Doxa Deo Team in South Africa--Jean Symons
There has never been a more critical time in history for the global church to discern and actuate transformational change in their cities. In this book, my friend and city transformation leader Alan Platt draws from a deep well of experience and shares practical Bible-based wisdom on how to be a twenty-first-century church purveying peace in the midst of the chaos currently dominating and characterizing the city culture.
