Item Description...
Overview
How many things does your church do just because that's the way it's always been done? Does your congregation value tradition over passion and stability over creativity? If so, it's time to unLearn. Leading congregations into a dynamic and prophetic future requires unLearning what you thought you knew about the church, leadership, and life. Pastor Michael Slaughter casts a vision for innovative and authentic congregations, and for the kind of leadership that can bring congregations to greater vitality and impact in today's postmodern culture. Readers will be challenged to gaze boldly beyond franchised church models to a dynamic embodiment of God's unique vision for each leader and each congregation. UnLearning congregations embrace new media and cultural trends, value transformation over information, and create a safe space for the tough and unanswerable questions of life. These are churches that lovingly dare to shoulder spiritual and prophetic leadership in our rapidly changing culture, re-articulating God's ancient purposes to create high-tech, high-touch environments in which people can become radical followers of Jesus Christ.

Informed by Slaughter's thirty years of leadership at the innovative and mission-driven Ginghamsburg United Methodist Church, UnLearning Church offers readers guidance and insight into setting aside old identities, old expectations, and old ways of doing church, and inspires readers with examples of congregations already living out their mission to be creative and outwardly-focused communities of faith. Michael Slaughter is Lead Pastor and Chief Dreamer of Ginghamsburg United Methodist Church in Tipp City, Ohio. Appointed to the small country church in 1979, Mike saw the potential for a teaching church that would transform its community and the lives of people across the globe. Ginghamsburg has grown under his three decades of leadership from 90 worshippers a week to over 5,000. His other books include Spiritual Entrepreneurs, Out On the Edge, Real Followers, UnLearning Church, and Money Matters."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Unlearning Church by Michael Slaughter  May 11, 2010
This is a great book for the post-modern church. We all fall into bad habits and tend to stick with the ways of the past. Mike Slaughter wants us to break free and do church in new and innovative ways that reach differing pockets of society that the "church" typically overlooks. This book is a must read for every pastor and church-goer. I highly recommend this book. I know it led me to rethink what I am doing in my congregation.
 
Inspiration from a spiritual visionary  Apr 1, 2010
Michael Slaughter, unLearning Church: Just When You Thought You Had Leadership All Figured Out (Loveland: Group, 2002)

Slaughter is the chief dreamer at Ginghamsburg Church, a catalyst for change among the new [...] style group of unique churches emerging in North America. Rather than duplicating church-growth models of last century, he champions leaving behind old labels, engaging the senses with technology and multimedia, allowing grace-space for paradox and hard questions, building a culture of innovation, focusing on those not yet at the table and leading from your example and passion. He suggests emerging churches will be built not by CEO pastors but spiritual visionaries who listen to God, paint a future full of promise, and empower laypeople for service. From eyes wide shut to arms wide open, he says we have a lot to unlearn and a lot to learn about radically demonstrating the love of Jesus in the world.

Originally reviewed for D Cronshaw "The Emerging Church: Pioneering Leadership and Innovation Reading Guide", Zadok Paper (Forthcoming 2010).
