Can we all just get along?

E Pluribus Unum "Out of many, one." This motto is emblazoned on the Great Seal of the United States, but it could be the church's model, too. Unfortunately, the daily experience of many Christians and churches feels like the opposite: out of one, many. We are increasingly aware of what makes us different from others, and it is hurting the church and its witness.

All Together Different will help readers understand why we find it so difficult "to just get along." Drawing from research on personal and group identity, it equips readers to navigate a culture that often pays lip service to the value of diversity, but struggles to foster constructive dialogue and mutual respect. With clear writing and real-life stories, All Together Different translates social identity theory for pastors, church leaders, and ministry practitioners, exposing it to the light of biblical and theological reflection.

An expert study of church planting in the most secular part of contemporary Europe

In this book Stefan Paas offers thoughtful analysis of reasons and motives for missionary church planting in Europe, and he explores successful and unsuccessful strategies in that post-Christian secularized context.

Drawing in part on his own involvement with planting two churches in the Netherlands, Paas explores confessional motives, growth motives, and innovation motives for church planting in Europe, tracing them back to different traditions and reflecting on them from theological and empirical perspectives. He presents examples from the European context and offers sound advice for improving existing missional practices. Paas also draws out lessons for North America in a chapter coauthored with Darrell Guder and John Franke. Finally, Paas weaves together the various threads in the book with a theological defense of church planting.

Presenting new research as it does, this critical missiological perspective will add significantly to a fuller understanding of church planting in our contemporary context.

"Our millennial children, as well as nonchurchgoing millennials, are both the church's greatest challenge and its most exciting new opportunity."
--John Seel, PhD

Warning: There is a fundamental frame of reference shift in American society happening right now among young adults. You may think of this group as millennials--those born between 1980 and 2000--but millennials resist this label for good reason: the national narrative on them is pejorative, patronizing, and just plain wrong.

Here's what we do know:

  • Of Americans with a church background, 76 percent are described as "religious nones" or unaffiliated--and it's the fastest growing segment of the population.
  • Close to 40 percent of millennials fit this religious profile.
  • Roughly 80 percent of teens in evangelical church high school youth groups will abandon their faith after two years in college.
  • It's unlikely that the evangelical church can survive if it is uniformly rejected by millennials, and yet:

  • Millennial pastors and youth ministers are disempowered; their perspective is often not taken seriously by senior church leadership.
  • Most millennial research is framed in categories rejected by millennials; that is, left-brained, analytical communication is lost on right-brained, intuitive millennials.
  • Evangelicals' bias toward rational left-brained thinking makes the church seem tone-deaf.
  • What's next? Read on. John Seel suggests survival strategies--communication on-ramps for genuine human connection with the next generation. It can be done.

    If you are a clergyperson who has a church staff or a Christian who supervises others in a business, this book is one that will explain the "servant leadership" model of administration and give examples of how it can be employed. "Servant Leadership" turns the normal pyramid of administration with the CEO in the top, upside-down and has the supervisor on the bottom teaching, directing, and providing resources for those he/she supervises Whether you are new to management or have done it for twenty years, reading about this method of leadership will inspire and challenge you to be a better supervisor who is able to achieve better results by empowering those you lead.
