What is Church? Shouldn’t we know the answer to that question? Yet there are people all around the world who are wondering if church should be something more than what we have experienced. Perhaps Jesus had something different in mind from our typical answers to the question, “What is church?” There are many books being written about why the church should be different or how it should be changed, but where are the voices who have lived this transition? For the past seven years, Mike Bishop and his friends have been living change among small communities of faith. Their story is not about the next great North American church movement, but rather the simple-and revolutionary-discovery of God’s Kingdom in a changing world.

Author Profile

Mike Bishop is a husband, father of three, thinker, trying-to-be-apprentice-of-Jesus, ecclesial trouble-maker, and wanna-be engineer. His wife Amber and family have spent the past seven years in South Florida with a rag-tag community of saints called The Well. Mike’s passion is to see normal people fall in love with Jesus and be able to realize their kingdom-born dreams.

This book is truly timeless for all who are struggling to find their purpose in a structured church setting. The author helped ne confirm my belief that faith isn’t found in a building but in where you are able to interact with other people. I have been a nurse for 42 years. I always felt closer to God when I was with a dying patient than in any other time I sat in a pew. Helping people at the end of their earthly journey has been more rewarding to me than any other “church” activity. It was reassuring to know that is really our purpose here to fulfill God’s mission on earth. I highly recommend everyone to read this author’s journey.
