  • Book: eShift - The Rise of the Internet Influenced Church
    [Buy Now – eShift Book]


    Christ’s church should be in a state of constant reformation. However, change never comes easy. Yet, change is exactly what eShift: The Decline of “Attractional” Church and the Rise of the Internet-Influenced Church is all about. As you progress through this book, you will distinguish between the characteristics of the previous television-influenced culture and the present-emerging internet-influenced culture as it relates to the church and its ministry. The differences between these two cultural value-sets is quite profound. eShift will show you how this vast culture gap can and must be bridged as there is one thing that remains unchanged and undiminished: Christ’s mission in this world and the power of His Spirit.

    What Leaders Are Saying About eShift…. “The church has been choking for decades on the naive assumption that the world hasn’t changed. eShift provides the necessary Heimlich Maneuver to clear her throat so that the fresh air of life and relevance can return. If you are over 40 this writing will be a wake up call. If you are under 25 you will shout Hallelujah that someone has finally stated things as they truly are. Either way, eShift is a gift to the church. Let’s hope it’s one that is opened and applied, not ignored.” (Dan Webster – Authentic Leadership Inc., Willow Creek, Crystal Cathedral)
