Untamed, his most recent book (with his wife Debra) is about missional discipleship for a missional church. There are four new books scheduled to come out in 2011 On the Verge (a process for missional movement for mega churches with Dave Ferguson). Right Here, Right Now (Everyday mission for anyone), The Permanent Revolution (about apostolic ministry and the significance of Eph 4), and one on the theology of risk with Michael Frost.

Vince Antonucci
That typical story, told too many times: Guy grows up in home with Jewish mother and gambling addict father, guy becomes a Christian in college by trying to prove the Bible isnt true, guy leaves career in law to become a pastor, guy starts church in Virginia Beach that grows from four people to hundreds, guy leaves church in Virginia Beach to move to Las Vegas to start church on the Vegas Strip.

Yeah, its kinda clichéd, but its my story sowhat can I do?

In addition to that basic boring story line he also is part of a non-profit that is doing humanitarian aid work in remote villages in Vietnam, and am part of starting a new non-profit that will be doing community service to meet needs on and around the Vegas Strip. Almost forgot to mention, he is in a stand-up comedy show here in Vegas.
