Los Angeles, Calif. (June 6, 2013) - Matthew Barnett, NY Times bestselling author and founder/pastor of the Dream Center in Los Angeles announces his third book to date with God's Dream for You: Finding Lasting Change in Jesus. Releasing nationwide on September 10, 2013 through Thomas Nelson, Inc., Barnett's latest project follows bestselling titles, The Church That Never Sleeps and The Cause Within You (

God's Dream For You is a revolutionary book that gives readers step by step instructions on how to go from being a survivor to a dreamer while creating lasting change in their lives. In addition to the uplifting message of hope that this book delivers, God's Dream For You also encourages readers to take a retrospective look inside their own life and discover the dream that awaits their destiny.

Filled with stories of profound testimony, this book aims to encourage people who may be facing difficult life situations and gives them the necessary mindset it takes to successfully overcome life's obstacles. God's Dream For You captivates readers by providing real, honest accounts of what it means to serve others and how that translates into God's blessings for your life. Barnett claims that by giving to others and by serving those around us, we then are a vessel for God to reveal His ultimate dream for our lives.

"God's Dream For You was really inspired by my own life experience and everything I have seen since starting the Dream Center in 1994", says Barnett. "I have really learned what it looks like to serve others and see how God will bless your life and fulfill your dreams as a result of being obedient to Him. I hope people will walk away with the tools to do the same through reading this book!"

With more than 273 ministries and outreaches across the country, the Dream Center helps thousands of inner-city residents with their spiritual and tangible needs. The Dream Center, founded in 1993 by Barnett, provides Biblical training, job training, shelter, and food, among other things. There are now more than 130 Dream Center locations throughout the country, including Los Angeles, New York City, Dallas, Phoenix, and St. Louis.

"Readers from all backgrounds can identify with how difficult it is to change," says Barnett. "But not everyone understands the special struggles for those trying to break free from addiction, abuse, and habitually bad choices. These people know that willpower alone won't work."

In God's Dream For You, Barnett shares true stories and testimonies of people whose lives hit rock bottom. But through the guidance and direction at the Dream Center in Los Angeles, where they learned about the power and love of Jesus, these brave souls broke free from their bondage and now live brand-new lives.

"I want to provide inspiration for those who, whatever their situation, want to discover God's dream for their life," says Barnett.
