Matthew Barnett, best-selling author of The Church That Never Sleeps and pastor of one of America’s fastest growing churches, is one of the most dynamic voices God is using in Christianity today. In 1993 he answered the call to fulfill his childhood dream: to build a church that would meet inner-city needs and remain open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The Dream Center in Los Angeles, California, was that place, and since its founding has started an international movement reaching from South America to Sweden.
The Dream Center now reaches more than 35,000 people each week in the Center’s 40 services and 273 ministries and outreaches, and houses close to 500 people who are being rehabilitated for the glory of God.
Matthew and his wife Caroline had their first child, Mia Aimee, on September 4, 2003, and Caden West was born on January 18, 2006.
