Youth Pastor Chris Durso stopped by BREATHEcast to talk about Misfit Conference 2015 and while in studio he revealed the topic of his upcoming book slated for 2016.

Durso has led a very successful youth ministry at Christ Tabernacle for some time now called Misfit NYC. And his ministry and family church is quickly becoming a household name in the American Christian world. But along with lines of youth wrapped around the block to get into church and sold out mega conferences in New York City, Durso announced he is branching out even further with an upcoming book targeting an older crowd.

Published by New York based company Random House, the forthcoming book will hit shelves in June 2016.

"It is on grace and it does talk about Jesus", Durso told BREATHEcast, "It is not geared towards youth. It is probably more geared towards the millennials and up."

'Misfits' Durso's first book spoke to the teens showing them what it meant to be a misfit like Jesus was, but this time around touching, on grace, something that is freely given by God takes it a step further.

"In this opportunity I just want to be able to encourage as many people as possible [of] how great, how big God's love is," the father of two stated.
