What would it be like to belong somewhere you could risk being known and still feel accepted?

Imagine belonging–really belonging–to a special family. Imagine living in a safe place where you can risk being known and still feel accepted…where people have a vision for who you can be, and are willing to walk with you to realize that vision.

What if you discovered not only that such a place exists, but also that the power to see this vision become reality is already in your possession? What if you realized that this place is the church?

It can happen. Unfortunately, in our time church has been pushed aside to a shelf marked “unimportant” or “irrelevant.” We may squeeze attending services into our packed schedules, but we never really seem to experience church.

In Risking Church, Jim Kallam–a pastor with a heart for God’s people and a vision for God’s plan–walks with you on a journey of discovery. It’s a journey that will break the stereotypical view of church, release a new way of thinking, and show how you can participate in creating an atmosphere where God’s people can stir each other to love more deeply and live more fully.

Take the risk. And begin experiencing the life-giving, life-sharing, life-revealing community called church.
