Organic Church: Growing Faith Where Life Happens


Churches have tried all kinds of ways to attract new and younger members, revised vision statements, hipper worship, contemporary music, livelier sermons, bigger and better auditoriums. But there are still so many people who aren’t being reached, who don’t want to come to church. And the truth is that attendance at church on Sundays does not necessarily transform lives; God’s presence in our hearts is what changes us. Leaders and laypeople everywhere are realizing that they need new and more powerful ways to help them spread God’s Word. According to international church starter and pastor Neil Cole, if we want to connect with young people and those who are not coming to church, we must go where people congregate. Cole shows readers how to plant the seeds of the Kingdom of God in the places where life happens and where culture is formed—restaurants, bars, coffeehouses, parks, locker rooms, and neighborhoods. Organic Church offers a hands-on guide for demystifying this new model of church and shows the practical aspects of implementing it.

-----------------------------------------------------

This book is an introduction to how God will completely re-shape the face of church in one generation. Pastor Mike Bickle received a word from the Lord back in 1984 that God would change the face of the church in one generation! This is now the time for the "nameless and faceless" army of God, the new generation of revolutionaries, the ones not given to names or titles, buildings or budgets, but rather a generation of burning hearts with deep love for the One who died and who desired all to be one with Him as He is with the Father...bring it on, STADIUM CHRISTIANITY and SERVANT HEART COMMUNITIES, it's God's end time strategy to raise up His HOUSE OF PRAYER in every city & His desire to establish HOUSEHOLDS OF FAITH
...organic churches...simple churches...campus churches where life happens, 24/7 living with God and one another. No more programs, no more man made communities, no more religion, no more divide between the sacred and secular, sunday and monday christianity, its about living out the kingdom everyday, all day, lets do it together friends in love...
