Impact: That’ll Leave a Mark is a timely book about the practical yet profound effect of God’s people on the culture they serve. Dr. Pratt encourages us to “go be the Body—everywhere, to everyone, all the time.” Embracing the principles of truth and pragmatic approach found here will help release you into the realm of impact as a follower of Jesus and challenge the church to take a new look at its ministry and mission.

Jesus famously called his followers to become “salt and light.” These are the two drivers of Christian ministry, bringing influence that changes the taste, tenor, and perspective of everything (and everyone) it touches. They are Kingdom words and Kingdom commands. But, with the velocity of change and challenge in the modern world, how do we live up to this high calling? Impact is Melissa Pratt’s answer—grounded in Scripture, inspired by the Spirit, and proven true by the extraordinary pastoral experience and witness that mark her walk with Jesus. Impact is more than a “how to,” it is a “why not me and why not here, now?” Read it and change your world.
