The development of meaningful relationships, where every member carries a significant sense of belonging, is central to what it means to be the church. So why do many Christians feel disappointed and disillusioned with their efforts to experience authentic community?

So intimate and alive. The Connecting Church tells you how. The answer may seem radical today, but it was a central component of life in the early church.
