About the Book   

After graduating from seminary, John quit his job as a Baptist minister and took off on a road trip to learn what makes a church “successful.” Rediscovering Church is a journey that traces his experiences of growing up in church, working as a minister, and then hitting the road to learn from some of the nation’s most interesting churches. The story follows him becoming a white minister in a black church, getting kicked out of and banned from a church, and even going to an AA meeting. In an age where there are thousands of Christian celebrities explaining how to lead your church to success, this story shines a light on the beautiful diversity of churches and the mosaic of personalities that lead them. Each chapter dives into the cultures and issues of a different congregation including: a traditional church, emerging church, African American church, exponential-growth church, mega-church, and a house church.
