NEW BOOK PUBLISHED THROUGH THE CENTRE FOR MISSIONAL LEADERSHIP

Dean Ross Lockhart and his colleague and friend at VST Dr. Jason Byassee have published a new book entitled, Better Than Brunch:  Missional Churches in Cascadia.  The book is the result of a yearlong research project into effective missional churches in Portland, Seattle and Vancouver.  Regent College professor Mark Glanville kindly reviewed the new book in yesterday’s Vancouver Sun newspaper.  You can read the review here: https://vancouversun.com/opinion/finding-a-spiritual-home-part-1

The project was initiated by Dean Lockhart’s curiousity based on the book Treasure in Clay Jars that followed Missional Church twenty years ago wondering if there were patterns that could be identified in missionally-minded congregations.  Dr. Lockhart and Dr. Byassee’s research has uncoverd some new patterns present for a new generation of Christian witness.  You can order the book now from Wipf & Stock with a 20% discount for the month of January using the code “Jan21.”
