The models of church we’ve been using aren’t working. Churches are shrinking, people are disconnecting, our membership is aging, and there are serious questions about our relevance in the world. It’s time for us to rethink how we do everything. Stripping us down to our mission, to the WHY rather than the HOW, can we rebuild our churches into vibrant, covenanted communities that can think outside our traditional boxes?

Disrupting Church is all about reimagining. It’s about letting go of what we think we know about what church is and breaking it open to become what it could be. It’s less about “going to church” and more about Living Church, Being Church in the world. It’s Churches Without Borders, it’s Six Ways from Sunday, it’s wild, innovative, church birthing and it’s what’s next.

Why subscribe?

This is meant to be a radically inclusive, egalitarian conversation. We aren’t interested in setting up borders and restricting access based on spending power. Our writing and podcast will always be free.

At the same time, churches around the country (particularly Unitarian Universalist and other liberal denominations) are facing resource crises, and we aren’t exempt from that. If you choose to support our work financially, we are immensely grateful. Anything you are able to give helps us devote more time and energy to this movement.

Thank you for joining us.
