Starting a Church for Unchurched Families #OC14

Starting a Church for Unchurched Families #OC14

One of the most relevant and stimulating breakout sessions that I attended at the 2014 Orange Conference was Carey Nieuwhof's discussion on "Starting a Church for Unchurched Families."

I am not a church planter, nor do I want to become one. I doubt that I will ever start a church for unchurched people. I signed up for this session because I respect Nieuwhof and desired to hear him speak in general, regardless of the topic. I was not sure if he would be addressing church planting or culture shifting, but Nieuwhof is an expert on the topic of post-Christianity and post-modernity. I knew that he would deal with this issue well, no matter what lens through which he discussed it. In fact, I highly commend his blog to you: careynieuwhof.com, a great resource on leadership and pastorship in a post-modern, post-Christian context. 

It turned out that this session was pertinent for anyone who desires to create a culture within their community that welcomes unchurched families, not just for planters. That's my heart, and I hope it is yours, as well.
