People interested in new and relevant ways to serve will benefit from this book. Sanders tells his personal story and that of a few people in Florida who went “underground.” He began as a campus pastor and led nine adults and 10 children to Manila to live with and minister to the poor for a year.

“Underground is composed of 201 microchurches (or mission entities) of all shapes and sizes in Tampa Bay. Some of these churches are grand endeavors with hundreds of people, paid staff, and a large budget. Others are made up of a dozen people who are picking a fight with a big problem in the name of Jesus.”

Underground’s manifesto is an aspirational document, outlining their values and priorities. “Our paradigm is that there is no one paradigm.”

—John Bernstein
