Join us for a special opportunity to meet with author, church planter, and coach Paul Nixon as he discusses and takes questions regarding his new book Weird Church! The event will be on Sunday May 15th at 2:00 p.m. at The Village Church.

This book is a wake-up call for those who still think church revitalization is simply a matter of doing better the things that used to come so easily. However, for the innovators whose ministries cannot fully be measured or understood by the old paradigms of members and money, Weird Church offers compelling vindication and encouragement that may cause them to stand and cheer!  A must-read for anybody who is designing Christian ministry for the new world that is rapidly emerging around us. 

Village Church is located inside the Maumee Indoor Theater, 601 Conant Street, Maumee, Ohio.
