Item Description...
Motivated by a deep hunger for more of God, millions of Christians are leaving the traditional church to look for more freedom and fulfillment than the routine of five songs, announcements, a plea for money and a forty five minute sermon allow. They are looking for open ended, deep worship that flows with the Holy Spirit, relatable Bible study and discussion in which they may participate, and strong bonds of fellowship outside the four walls of organized church. Instead of leaving the church to fall away from God, they are leaving the church to find God. Leaving the Church to Find God offers scriptural, safe, and balanced answers tempered by real life experiences, on how to move from a traditional church structure into meetings that allow the Lord to set the agenda and where needs are met. John Fenn - I was a Christian who felt disconnected from church though I'd been actively involved nearly all my life. I was looking for answers to my desire and hunger for God to move freely, and came to realize I wasn't alone. From all walks of life and across the church spectrum people are searching for something deeper, but they don't quite know what. This is the story of how I found God moving outside the church structure that I had known, loved, and been a part of my whole Christian life. John and his wife Barbara were born in Kokomo, Indiana and began dating as teenagers when they met the Lord, and began ministering to their teenage friends. They've been in the ministry now for over thirty years, serving in various capacities including Campus Pastor, Associate Pastor, Senior Pastor, and advisor to churches and Bible schools all over the world. John also worked with Peter Wagner teaching at the Wagner Leadership Institute, serving as Canadian National Director and Education Advisor. He remains an adjunct instructor of Wagner Leadership Institute of Colorado Springs. In early 2002 John and his wife Barb, founded The Church Without Walls International of Tulsa, a house church network, emphasizing Relationship Based Christianity. He travels and teaches in all different streams of Christianity, helping churches and individuals find significance and fulfillment through Godly relationships and the discipleship process.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great help for those doing or consider home/simple/house church  Jun 3, 2007
This is a great book for those doing home/simple/house church. John answers most of the questions I have heard in simple understandable terms. It is a great resource for those of us who love God but are tired of religion.
The reason behind the home church movement clearly revealed...  Apr 19, 2007
The church as we know it has changed forever and John Fenn's latest work explains clearly the why as well as the how of this trend.

The book starts off with a review of the general dissatisfaction present in so many with the current church system. Properly called the "pyramid" type of church, the book explains why the current church structure is failing and how it is out of line with what the Bible and history teach us.

Though John points out that God will work through any structure we give Him, he correctly teaches that the home church is the most biblical and has the most potential.

One of the greatest assets of this book is the chapter dealing with gifts and offices.

In the modern church we get so taken up with names and titles--to the point that ministry gifts such as Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor-Teacher (hyphenated in the original Greek) are "offices."


They are gifts to the body of Christ and are not OVER the body but actually in and among as well as under the body at the foundation where Christ is.

By using the word "office" to describe what is actually a gifting to the body, we add a position to these gifts that the scriptures do not allow for. And then, along with this error, we go down the slippery slope of "covering" teaching, sheparding, and being "under the cover" of someone's anointing.

Error begets error and John skillfully deals with this and many other topics in the book.

A must read for those curious about the biblical origins of the home church movement and for those considering starting or joining a home church.

Highly recommended...
