Item Description...
The world has more than changed. In fact the world as it was known for generations is ending, and from its ashes a new world is rushing in. All sociologist, futurists, theologians, and academicians agree. But the shape of this post-modern world is still being formed. The clay of the post-seeker generation is still soft, yet to be completely hardened by cynicism. Communities of believers who are especially equipped are being birthed across the nation and world. Church leaders, having seen the decline of the seeker generation, are embracing the future and are planting the seeds for the future church. Jim. L. Wilson, himself on the frontline of this new generation of church leaders, discusses this new movement and profiles the leaders whose visions are leading them to throw off the chains of conventional modernity to once again become all things to all men to save some. Future churches neither criticize culture nor adapt to it. Future churches leverage culture to the gospel's advantage. This book offers seven critical fulcrum points the church must locate in order to remain relevant in the post-modern, post-seeker, post Christian age.

Publishers Description
The church today is poised on a precarious balance between culture and content, between cultural relevance and doctrinal integrity. Like a seesaw, the church swings back and forth, compelled both to reach an entertainment-driven culture and to remain true to the Gospel. In Future Church, Jim Wilson presents 7 clear principles which become "fulcrum points," principles that will give the Church real leverage to reach people and push them upward toward the hand of God. These 7 Fulcrum Points are illustrated in real-life settings, as Wilson takes us on visits to churches that are utilizing them. This is the way of ministry in a post-seeker age. This is Future Church

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Captures essence of emerging church movement  Dec 14, 2004
Kudos to Jim for a great book that captures the essence of the emerging church movement. Often times when we think emerging churches we think of candles, poetry, tattoos, and experiential worship. Future Church is a great read because it boils down the movement to the core transferrable principles. As a new church plant it was most encouraging to hear stories from other new emerging churches and their struggles. I say this is a must read for all church planters and pastors.
More Than Coincidence . . .  Oct 21, 2004
I lead a church plant in Seattle called Cascade Hills... We've been at this for 2 and a half years, and are discovering that "contemporary worship" is neither contemporary, or real worship. There is a stirring in us for more of God, and less of "churchianity." We have been on a journey of discovery, and have found ourselves outlining a ministry plan that literally has lined up with each of the 7 fulcrum points Jim Wilson so clearly articulates in "Future Church". Here's where it gets interesting . . . we did the plan, then discovered the book! I have not been able to get past the idea that this is a move of God on His Church, and that something huge is about to happen... Not just in Seattle or the West Coast, or even America, but worldwide. Thank you Jim!"
Powerful guide for church leaders  Mar 19, 2003
Jim Wilson has shed light on the most crucial element for church leaders -- how to be THE CHURCH God needs to reach a lost and dying world. As a member of a church staff, I've witnessed firsthand how our church has grappled with finding the appropriate identity to draw those in need of the Gospel message into our church. FUTURE CHURCH helped me understand the issues and challenges our church faces. Rather than offering a purely theoretical approach, Jim provides case studies of actual churches -- from big to small; urban to rural -- which are shining examples of the FUTURE CHURCH. Thanks, Jim, for reaching out to us who are struggling to get where we need to be.
help for difficult times  Oct 14, 2002
Finding our way into the future is too often like taking a trail, any trail, and hoping it leads to the mountain top. Jim Wilson has given us in Future Church a trail guide to creating a church whose best days are ahead,not behind. Based not on theory but on actual case studies, Wilson takes us behind the scenes of churches that most of us would never discover otherwise. There we meet fearless leaders and focused congreagations who are influencing the world in which they live in ways that lift up the hope and the winsome nature of the real Gospel. I'm recommending Future Church, not only to all my pastor friends, but to the leadership teams within our congregation. With a guide to a preferrable future at hand, we hope to continue the process of shaping our church into one that shapes our community for the better.

Future Church  Oct 14, 2002
We are at a critical time period in church history, where we must be rethinking almost everything we have presupposed in our modern philosophy and methodology to reach post-seeker generations. Jim gives a portrait of the rising landscape that is forming in the Future Church.
