How does the text of the gospel take root in a post-Christendom culture? What sort of disciplines and imagination root a kingdom presence in Canadian neighbourhoods? How does this frame of "church plant" shift in our renewed awareness of the missio Dei?
This project tells the stories of eleven church planters, in nine Canadian cities. In part, it comprises a research project to discover what stories are really being written on the Canadian front lines. It anticipates a diverse contextualization of the gospel as we re-enter the neighbourhoods of towns and cities and urban centers.
