Future Faith Churches

Co-Authored with Don Posterski

Future Faith Churches

How can a church survive into the next millennium? That is the question
Don Posterski and Gary Nelson asked themselves while researching and
writing ‘Future Faith Churches’. This book shows the way through to the
21st century by examining 14 examples of churches — from Pentecostal
to mainline liberal — that are combining the strands of evangelism, social
action, church growth, and strong leadership to create the fabric of their
worshipping community.

Borderland Churches: A Congregation’s Introduction to Missional

Borderland Churches

Gary Nelson addresses thedisconnect between religion and God by looking
at what is happening in our culture and in our churches. He demonstrates a
passion for the Church, the people and for God and calls for us to once again
be passionate followers of Jesus Christ who listen with compassion as we
navigate the waters of change in our churches.
