Item Description...
Overview
Writing for the leaders of portable congregations, as well as those of more established churches who want to learn from such churches. Provides the definitive guide to ministry in the nomadic church.

Publishers Description
Across the country, churches are forgoing purchase of land and construction of buildings, choosing, instead to rent space and allocate their resources to mission and leadership development. These churches face a number of challenges (for example, putting up and tearing down equipment every time they meet; getting the word out, especially to visitors, on where the church will gather any given week; and negotiating for additional space). The churches, however, face even more important opportunities (for example, it allows time to build the church as a community before building it with brick and mortar; it builds serious disciples by calling on members to sacrifice; and it frees funds to be used on mission rather than mortgages). Writing for the leaders of portable congregations, as well as those of more established churches who to learn from such churches, Easum and Theodore have provided the definitive guide to ministry in the nomadic church.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
from Abingdon Press  May 3, 2006
This book is a guide to the opportunities and challenges facing churches that do not own their property, and what established churches can learn from them. Across the country, churches are forgoing purchase of land and construction of buildings, choosing instead to rent space and allocate their resources to mission and leadership development. These churches are faced with a number of challenges, such as putting up and tearing down equipment every time they meet, getting the word out-especially to visitors-on where the church will gather any given week, and negotiating for additional space. However, being nomadic provides the church with many important opportunities, including that it allows time to build the church as a community before building it with brick and mortar; it builds serious disciples by calling on members to sacrifice; and, it frees funds to be used on mission rather than mortgages. Writing for the leaders of portable congregations-well as those of more established churches who want to learn from such churches-the authors have provided the definitive guide to ministry in the nomadic church.
 
Finally, Help is Here!  May 9, 2005
This one-of-a-kind book is the definitive guide to the opportunities and challenges facing churches that do not own their property. Coupled with its visionary thrust are loads of practical insights gained through years of experience and research into scores of flourishing Nomadic Churches. You'll learn how church leaders of vibrant mobile ministries are making an eternal impact despite their temporary quarters...and how you can, too!

ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Dr. Bill Easum was a uniquely successful pastor for 35 years and is one of the most highly respected church consultants and Christian futurists in North America. As the President of Easum, Bandy & Associates (www.easumbandy.com), his many books, seminars, and other resources have and continue to guide thousands of Christian leaders for ancient ministry in the contemporary world. He brings unparalleled insight and wisdom to this project.
Dr. Pete Theodore is currently the "Teach Pastor" at a church of over 5,000, as well as an author, seminar speaker, and visiting seminary professor. He has served on the staffs of two vibrant Nomadic Churches and studied and counseled with many others. His personal experience, clear thinking, and gift for research and writing are evident in the book.



ENDORSEMENTS FROM THE COVER:
"No church planter or planting church can afford to be without this book. In a match made in heaven, Theodore's fresh, original, primary, deep-digging research is coupled with Easum's matchless knowledge and lifetime wisdom of church consultation." - Leonard Sweet; Author, Futurist, Drew University Theological School, George Fox University, preachingplus.com



"Bill Easum and Pete Theodore have named the elephant in the church living room: The `if we build it, they will come' era is disappearing-fast. But Bill and Pete don't just name the problem. They spend the majority of the book offering well-researched, compelling alternatives to sinking the majority of a congregation's income into bricks and mortar. If you have even an inkling that church is more about a people called to serve than a place people go, you're going to have a hard time putting this book down." - Sally Morgenthaler, Author & Founder, Sacramentis.com and Digital Glass Productions



"The benefits of this book could be truly staggering! In our journey here at Cedar Ridge Community Church, there have been a lot of heroes...[who] didn't have the advantage of a book like this. By the grace of God, they survived our seventeen-year sojourn. Knowing how much they've suffered and sacrificed, I'm all the more grateful for the work Bill Easum and Pete Theodore have done. The practical wisdom distilled in these pages will be priceless. It is my honor to introduce and commend this book that will make church planting more doable, and, I hope, more enjoyable (can I say fun?) too." - Excerpted from the Foreword by Brian McLaren, former Nomadic Pastor, Author, Emergent Visionary



"I had thought of writing a book on Nomadic Churches, but Bill Easum and Pete Theodore have done the job fantastically! As a former nomadic pastor, I can tell you they have covered all the bases thoroughly. If you are either a nomadic pastor or are considering planting a church and will become one in the future, YOU NEED THIS BOOK!" - Steve Sjogren; writer of www.servantevangelism.com



"For years church leaders have assumed that a building was necessary for real ministry. In fact, it is often one of the greatest obstacles. Throughout this insightful book the authors smash traditional barriers to church growth." - Dr. Charles Arn, President, Church Growth, Inc., Monrovia, California



"Those of us who are passionately pursuing a movement of reproducing churches know we absolutely cannot construct buildings big enough or fast enough to keep up with what God wants to do. The emerging church will be full of nomadic church plants and nomadic multi-site churches that will rent and borrow big box buildings they will never own. Bill and Pete's book is as necessary to that movement as a set-up team is to a Nomadic Church." - Dave Ferguson, Lead Pastor, Community Christian church, Naperville, Illinois



"Easum and Theodore realize that Nomadic Churches often have more in common with the New Testament church than ministries with a permanent home address. And to these churches they offer the kind of sound practical advice and clear theological perspective that will help any Nomadic Church better fulfill its mission and calling. I highly recommend their book." - Dr. Larry Osborne, Lead Pastor, North Coast Church, Vista, California



"YES! Finally a book that celebrates both the cost-effective impact and the challenges of churches meeting in rented facilities! My thanks to Bill Easum and Pee Theodore for highlighting their contribution to the Kingdom and sharing these techniques of thriving Nomadic Churches." - Pete van der Harst, President, Portable Church Industries



"The Nomadic Church breathes the missional Spirit of Jesus Christ. Through temporary facilities, contemporary outreach, and extraordinary faith, Easum and Theodore move us back to the future and forward to the past. If you refuse to let missional living be minimized by maintenance, then you need this book. By the way, pick up extra copies for your leadership team." - Greg Kappas, Co-founder, Heart of Grace Ministries and the International Church Planters Summit
