Liquid Church: 6 Powerful Currents to Saturate Your City for Christ
WHO: Tim Lucas, founder and senior pastor of Liquid Church in New Jersey, and Warren Bird, VP of research for the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability.
THEY SAY: “The current of the Holy Spirit is already flowing powerfully beneath the surface of your ministry as you take increasing risks to saturate your city for Christ.”
THE BIG IDEA: This book tells the story of Liquid Church, how it started and grew, and how lessons from its journey can be applied to churches of all sizes.
Part 1, “Living Water Running Wild,” introduces readers to Liquid Church in New Jersey and encourages them to get to know the tools that can help grow their ministry.
In Part 2, “Six Currents That Form a Powerful River,” the authors dedicate a chapter to each of the six ways churches can reach their city for Christ: Love the Overlooked, Ignite the Imagination, Quench Their Thirst, Unite the Generations, Inspire Generosity and Develop Untapped Talent.
The book wraps up with “Flowing With the Spirit,” an invitation to readers to reflect on how their church start a fresh approach to outreach.
