Scattered & Gathered
These are challenges that LICC have been successfully helping churches address with training events, resources and tools. Learning the Way is the follow-up book to Imagine Church (2012). This new book will enable church leaders to know how to lead churches that help people know what it means to serve the purposes of God on their front-lines. It's a book that is based on the latest of LICC's thinking and methods of supporting churches with their practice of ministry.
It will help church leaders to go past good intentions to know how the practices of their church will lead to the development of confident front-line-focused disciples. It will provide a resource that leaders can use with wider church leadership teams. It will ensure that local churches are able to keep the contexts of their church communities central to their mission planning and practice.
Learning The Way offers a clear vision of what it means to be the people of God, guides in reflecting on the shape and culture of church life, and then explores what that means for the leadership styles and expectations of those who have that responsibility. This is a book that will further develop the conversation about churches being communities that shape us for our scattered living.
Reviews of Imagine Church:
Disciple-making is hard, worthwhile, adventurous living and Neil Hudson’s masterly title will resource and inspire your obedience in the mission of Jesus in your world. I particularly love the underlying culture changing dynamic of Neil's writing. This is the spinal core of this new work calling us to attitude, action and transformation. As a pastor-theologian-leader Neil has gifted the church with something of lasting worth in transforming what can often feel dull, safe and stuck in our church communities. Johnny Douglas The GoodBookstall.org 12 April 2012
Definitely a worthwhile read . Phil Heaps, Evangelicals Now Sept 2012
This is one of those credible and timely books... Hudson is honest about his own journey. This is, and feels, wonderfully liberating for those of us who are excited by the vision but hesitant about what it will involve. ... This is book that any serious Christian and any thoughtful pastor should read. Jeremy Crossly Church Times 4 Oct 2013
This invaluable little book should be compulsory reading for all in church leadership, reminding us that for the vast majority of people, Christian living is about what happens every day, not just on Sunday . Steve Dutfield, Together February 2013
