How to Connect Neighborhood Churches to Your Local Community

This is a discussion that took place on  February 20, 2018. John was a participant and it originally appeared on the Abundant Community website.

About every six weeks for the last five years, John and Peter have hosted online / dial-up conversations with community-building pioneers as their guests. For their February 20, 2018 dialog they invited Paul Sparks, a leading voice in the growing Parish Movement. Paul has worked in more than 1,000 neighborhoods around the world to identify, connect, and support groups that want to have their neighborhoods flourish. In their conversation Paul talked about his own and his colleagues’ work with local churches, academic institutions, and community organizations in the United States and abroad and offered ideas on how to translate their experiences into local community-building work.
