Publisher's Description

A groundbreaking and essential guide to opening up the concept of church and achieving spiritual renewal in the 21st century.
 
Taking one page from the Bible and another from Silicon Valley, priest and scholar Dwight Zscheile brings theological insights together with cutting-edge thinking on organizational innovation to help churches flourish in a time of profound uncertainty and spiritual opportunity. In today’s dynamic cultural environment, churches have to be more than faithful—they have to be agile. That means embracing processes of trial, failure, and adaptation as they form a Christian community with new neighbors. And that means a whole new way of being a church. How can it be realized? The Agile Church answers all the urgent and practical questions about meeting this cultural change.
 
For clergy, congregational leaders, judicatory and denominational executives and staff, seminarians, and church members, "Dwight’s work on innovation is a rare gift for pastors and church leaders wanting something rooted deeply in scripture and Christian imagination, not just one more trend." Alan Roxburgh, author of The Missional Network  
 
Study guide included.
 
"In an age when people are making choices about their faith, spirituality, and lives in unprecedented ways, our churches have the opportunity to be nimble, graceful, and creative. The Agile Church is an ideal guide for this journey." Doug Pagitt, author of Church in the Inventive Age
