Bringing Church Home

In a day of statistical decline in church participation, what if we imagined marriages as little churches and households as living demonstrations of the way that God’s love is reoriented around Jesus? In the pages that follow, you’re invited into a kind of radical kinship rooted in family-community love. In his first book, author Gannon Sims shows how our homes can become hubs for mission pointing toward our true home where we—no matter our previous experiences of family or home or love—can find kinship in God.


Gannon Sims (M.Div. Duke Divinity School) is Director of Ministry Formation and a founding team member of Fresh Expressions US, a movement seeking to bring the church Jesus loves closer to the people Jesus loves. He lives with his wife Carey in Fredericksburg, Virginia where they direct The Center for Faith and Leadership, a training and equipping hub for university students and young leaders and The Center Community, an expression of church that patiently seeks to live out much of what is articulated in this book.
