Where to Start Reading about Organic Church?

Recently, we received an email inquiry asking us “Where should I start in reading about Organic Church?” Well as far as books go, Organic Church is the best starting place. Church 3.0 is a great follow up to that…answering questions about the particulars of the foundation of Organic Church ( eg., what about kids, money, […]

Some thoughts on Organic Church

“We believe that church should happen wherever life happens. You shouldn’t have to leave life to go to church.” I remember when I was younger (and more idealistic for some silly reason), I wanted every time I got together with friends for us to have a prayer time, or a singing time – worship, basically […]

A Simple Way to Organize Your Life by Ed Waken

Put the following four words in the correct order of importance; Work, Family, Church, God What did you come up with? Actually, this is a trick question.  The best option is to remove God from the list, put the other three words in any order you’d like and then place God on top of the […]

A movement that empowers the common Christian…

Neil Cole says of the early period of Church Multiplication Associates, “‘We want to lower the bar of how church is done and raise the bar of what it means to be a disciple.‘  Their rationale was that if the experience of church was simple enough that just about anyone can do it, and is made […]

What is church? by Neil Cole

In the Bible the church is not defined but instead is described with pictures: a flock, a field, a family, a body, a bride, a branch, a building made of living stones. Never is it described by the pictures we typically have today: a building, a business, a school or a hospital. We have replaced […]
