This impactful guidebook with real life anecdotes and a conversational feel will allow you to grow your Church community, coming back together as His people. 

What People Are Saying

"It seems strange to assert that one of the most countercultural claims that we as Christians could make in twenty-first century America is that we are created for community, but here we are: our society is scattered, tattered, and—despite the promises of technology—disconnected. Brian Davies incisively diagnoses our ills and demonstrates a more excellent way: connected to Christ and His Body, the Church. Read this book to recover a vision of what it looks like to live a life of faith in Christian community and to lead a body of believers that is bound both to the Lord and one another."

—Rev. Dr. Ryan P. Tinetti, pastor, Trinity Lutheran Church, Arcadia, Michigan

Rev. Davies has written an inspirational book that points the church back to its Acts foundation. Connected to Christ gives the church vision and practical skills to overcoming isolation by establishing a vibrant community. Brian gives us some heartwarming stories of the power of the people of God coming alongside isolated people and loving them into a Christ-centered community. The book follows a simple plan. Brian dives into how community is found, realized, and practiced. He lays out how Jesus invites us to identity and belonging in Him, and how God has indeed made a space at the table for each of us. The book points out how the Lord’s vision is that all who find identity and belonging in Him also find community with one another. Rev. Davies finally leads us to the practical ways to discover the richness of life together. This is a must-read book for anyone seeking an authentic community. If you follow the lessons in this book, it could create life-transformation in your church.

—Rev. B. Keith Haney, Assistant to the President for Mission, Stewardship, and Human Care, Iowa West District LCMS
