An essential guide to planning life-changing churches.
What is an organic church? It’s a community of people framed by a common life in Christ, not religious programs. A community whose foundation is birthed by God, not built by methods. A vibrant family of Jesus where genuine, authentic relationships are fostered.
Influential leader and author Frank Viola is calling the church back to its biblical and spiritual roots. It’s a grounded call in a profound truth: In all things spiritual, origin determines destiny. This is why so many religious congregations today are struggling to survive. It’s not because of bad planning, but poor planting. So how do we return to God’s original plan and purpose for His church?
Viola presents an essential guide for finding, planting and nourishing organic church communities. Within this comprehensive guide, he revisits the original design for Christ’s Church. Drawing from both Scriptures and real-world experience, Viola offers fresh and practical tools for finding and planting life-changing churches that won’t just grow, but thrive.
Finding Organic Church is presented in four sections:
* Planting the seed - Biblical principles for church planting
* Tilling the ground - answers to questions
* Cultivating the soil - practical steps for beginning
* Pulling the weeds - health and development
On the day it released, Finding Organic Church reached # 12 as a best seller on Amazon.com and was the #2 book in the Christianity category.
Frank Viola is a renowned author, speaker, and church planter. He is a prominent advocate and leader of the missional church, house church, and organic church movements.
