About the Book

For every Christian who has ever longed for something more than the routine of work, eat, sleep, play, and church, Godspeed explains that it is because we were made for a greater mission—the cause of Christ in the world.

In his new book Godspeed, innovative young pastor Britt Merrick challenges readers to leave behind the mundane and the meaningless to join God’s grand purpose—His plan to restore, redeem, and renew the world.

God’s mission to save the world started with Jesus, but it doesn’t end there. Jesus, in turn, sends us. He said, “As the Father has sent me, so I send you.” God wants to continue His redemption story through each of us— as we live more like Jesus, right where we are.
