KAREN + JOHN
CHURCH FOR TOMORROW IS LISTENING FOR GOD'S DREAM FOR OUR WORLD AND WONDERING OUT LOUD WHAT GOD'S UP TO INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF THE CHURCH.
The old way of doing church is gone but out of the rubble, new oracles are rising. While the purpose of the church in every age is to call forth believers, the faithful life is also constantly adapting to time and geography.
It is this adaptation that attests to the universality of Christianity and in a rapidly changing world, we sprint to keep up with the movement of the Spirit. If you feel the stirring in your heart, too, then join the conversation, dream out loud and take risks for the movement of the Spirit in the world.
