“I know of no one who is more in touch with and participating in the Spirit-breathed emergence of new forms of church than Beth Estock and Paul Nixon. Here is a book I will use not only in my seminary classes on evangelism and church planting, but in the church at large as I encourage pastors and lay leaders who are being called to launch weird churches in their own contexts.”
— Elaine A. Heath, Dean of Duke Divinity School, and co-founder of The Missional Wisdom Foundation
Welcome to the Twenty-First Century
In the post-Christendom era, nothing in the world of organized religion works the way it used to work. While some are beginning to give up hope for the future of faith, Weird Church offers a clear vision of a good future, so long as church leaders are willing to live into a few critical shifts. Utilizing Spiral Dynamics as a means of framing the current changes in North American culture, authors Paul Nixon and Beth Estock offer a rip-roaring forecast of where the church is going as we race toward the mid-century!
Weird Church Parties
A Weird Church Party is a gathering with Paul Nixon and/or Beth Estock, authors of Weird Church: Welcome to the Twenty-First Century. There will be a panel discussion of innovative church leaders, table conversation around some of the ideas in the book Weird Church, a brief author talk about the book, book signing and refreshments. These are held at churches, seminaries, community centers, book stores and the like all over North America and beyond. There is no cost for the Party itself, although the hosts may be asked to help with author transportation and lodging.
