What Jesus wants for our Christian life isn't complicated. What if we have it mixed up? What if we got in the way? Jesus called us to be a community and through that community to introduce Him to the world. That doesn't require the walls of a church building or any of the other Christian trappings we have in the West.
This short guide serves as a guerilla manual to founding what is known in the United Kingdom as a "fresh expression of church." In quick, to-the-point chapters it shares what is a fresh expression of church, how to start one, how to be about making disciples, how to grow mature disciples, how to reproduce your fresh expression, and how to measure fruitfulness.
Meant to be read in under thirty minutes, the concepts of "Refresh" will fuel a lifetime of inspiration to spread the community of Jesus.

This five-week small group resource helps spark spiritual conversations. Starting spiritual conversations with those outside of the church is a worthy, yet often difficult and intimidating task. Intersect was designed to help overcome those barriers.
It is an easy-to-use resource, perfect for sharing with co-workers, friends, neighbours, and family to enter into meaningful conversations. Five individuals recount their faith journey and tell authentic stories of the circumstances that have forced them to examine how God might fit into their lives.
Each film is accompanied by thought-provoking questions designed to encourage participants to examine the world in which they live and the life they're pursuing, always ending with a conversation on how Jesus intersects the current topic.
Allow this powerful new film resource to engage those you are in relationship with and then propel them forward in their next step with Jesus.
For Rob Peabody, the young pastor at a mega-church in southern USA, the realization that his faith had little real connection with the world around him meant that something had to change. He redirected his church towards the poor on their doorstep and then took the larger step of moving to the UK to establish the missional fellowship ‘Awaken’.
In Citizen he outlines the Kingdom-centered identity that is given to followers of Jesus. It's a wake-up call to the church in the West.
Jesus' death and resurrection initiates and invites people into a life of so much more than the status quo. God is re-building, re-newing, and re-creating that which is broken and marred by sin, and he is doing this – setting things right in the world – through Jesus. As citizens of the Kingdom, we have been saved and set apart for this work. We have a new allegiance, a changed identity, and a new mission as we seek to establish the rule of God on earth as it is in Heaven.
