Foreword by Jentezen Franklin

I am convinced that if a name was added to the eleventh chapter of The Book of Hebrews today, Tommy Barnett would be listed among the most faithful for his era. No one on the planet has done more to be the hands and feet of Jesus to “the least of these” than the ministries he has founded and supported. His heart has no bounds, and he has been to the ends of the earth raising sup­port and being a spiritual father to so many who are striving to reach the lost, feed the hungry, and rescue the perishing from lives of addic­tion, prostitution, and human trafficking. He is fearless and a national treasure in every sense of the word.

For many years Tommy Barnett has been one of a handful of mentors and spiritual fathers to me. I know our ministry has experienced countless blessings because of our association and support for his many missions and outreaches. I can’t think of a better title for a book written by his hand than What If? Tommy Barnett is a living example of all that is possible if we will just say those two words: What if? I have no doubt he has said these two words many times in his lifetime and will again. These two words have helped rescue thousands of lives that the rest of society has written off, and the impact of his endeavors has affected the trajectory of countless families while changing the moral fabric of neighborhoods and entire cities.

Many have dreamed amazing dreams, but few have actually braved the obstacles and opposition to rise up and allow the Lord to use them day after day, year after year . . . brick upon brick and life upon life like Tommy Barnett has. His family is a testament to God’s faithfulness to the next generation. I challenge you to allow each chapter to speak into YOUR dream . . . your “what if” and to open your mind and heart to all that is possible. Tommy Barnett’s life has marked the trail for you on each page in this book. I challenge you to attach his legacy to your calling and his anointing to your vision, and then, allow his passion to start an unquenchable fire in your belly.

T. D. Jakes, Sr.

Pastor Tommy Barnett is one of the most innovative, progressive-thinking individuals of his era. His timely autobiography, What If?, will be a priceless resource to build faith, avoid stumbling blocks and attain spiritual gratification. I strongly recommend this as a resource to every believer and especially every leader.

I’m so excited about this amazing book about the life of Pastor Tommy Barnett. It’s the story of a man whose faith I’ve witnessed and esteemed for many years. I’ve had the privilege of knowing Pastor Tommy since I was a boy and he, not unlike my Dad who was one of his peers and friends, is one of my heroes in how he’s lived this adventure of believing God time after time after time. This book is filled with the stories of those “What If?” moments that capture his approach to impossible circumstances and daring to believe God for MORE. I’m so glad his inspiring journey has been chronicled—his life has always inspired me, and now we have it to encourage and enjoy for generations to come.

From prisons to palaces, my friend Tommy Barnett has impacted people in all walks of life with the Good News of Jesus Christ. He is a dreamer who, in many years of life and ministry, has surrendered all to the great adventure of living in God’s will. I have the highest regard for Tommy, and he has been an incredible inspiration to me personally. I know the story of what God has done in and through his life will embolden you to believe there is always more on the horizon.

I can still remember the first time that I heard Pastor Tommy Barnett speak. It was at the Australian National Assemblies of God conference in a jam-packed arena in early 1990. Along with 12,000 others, I was completely mesmerized as he spoke. I had never been so gripped by a man with a message like I was that night. He instantly shot to hero status in my life! Pastor Tommy became the benchmark of what a minister of Christ looked like, and I dearly wanted to follow and emulate him! Pastor Tommy’s love for the church, for the lost, for the broken and the hopeless has challenged me and shaped my ministry philosophy over the years. His passion for souls, for creative “out of the box” evangelism, and for equipping leaders has rarely been rivaled, and is reflected in his books and in his sermons. I know I wouldn’t be who I am today or where I am today without this extraordinary man’s influence in my life. I honestly believe he will go down in history as one of the great church builders and influencers of our lifetime. It’s an honor to know him.

I was 19, struggling with addiction, rejection, and brokenness. I had a hard heart and believed everyone had given up on me . . . until I met the Pastor at the end of a service. I was giving God one last shot when that Pastor took a look at me and said, “I don’t know what you’ve done, but I love you and I want you in my church.” That man was Tommy Barnett, and my life was forever changed by God that day!

Pastor Tommy Barnett is a multi-generational leader who embodies the gospel message by dedicating his life to serving the needs of the outcast, ostracized, and overlooked. His impact and influence have not only changed the trajectory and relevance of the local church; he has also captured the hearts of ordinary people who have been mobilized to live beyond themselves. Pastor Tommy’s heart and passion have been fuel to my mission and our church’s mission to impact our city and beyond.

Among a handful of key people God has used to inspire me, I am blessed to count my friend Tommy Barnett among them. I know I’m not the only one, and now in What If? Tommy shares his life story so others can grow closer in their relationship with God as they serve according to His purposes. With wisdom, encouragement, and insight on leadership, Tommy’s heart for loving others reveals a contagious example of what it means to follow Jesus. Be warned—don’t read What If? unless you’re prepared to let God answer that question in your own life!

Tommy Barnett is without any doubt one of the greatest voices of our time. It is a voice of a life that gushes passion for Jesus and reaching the lost no matter what it takes. What he has done to awaken the Church to the importance of focusing on the poor and the hurting has inspired me over and over.

To say that I can’t wait for this book to come out is an understatement! Tommy Barnett is one of the most innovative and inspirational leaders of our time. He has inspired many of us to dream bigger dreams and trust God for things previously thought impossible. Do yourself a favor and get the book!

Pastor Tommy Barnett is a modern-day pillar of the faith. No one has embodied a commitment to innovation and empowering the next generation like Pastor Tommy. His life in ministry is a story worth telling as a part of equipping the next generation of leaders so that they can go into the world as influential servants in their careers and their communities. This book tells of a journey that future church leaders need to hear.
