WHAT IS THE UNDERGROUND?

These are the two best resources to help you get a fist look at the Underground community and dive into the culture-shifting distinctives of our missional ecosystem.

LAUNCH A MICROCHURCH

When Jesus thought about the church, what did he imagine?

Most churches are small, and rightly so. With power being redistributed in our time, networks of smaller enterprises are both growing and thriving. The yearning for participation and empowerment has us all looking for versions of church that make room for everyone. Perhaps, after all our hand wringing and insecurity about the size of our churches, we have missed the point. Microchurches can be strong, beautiful, accessible and potent portraits of just what Jesus had in mind, if not for all time, at least for ours.

This book is a guide to understanding, appreciating, and if you are up for it, starting a microchurch.

 

All proceeds from the sale of this book go to support the Underground Network.
