"A really well-articulated, organizationally insightful, insider's view of what happens when missional meets mega and when movemental forms engage best practice in contemporary church leadership and organization." Alan Hirsch director, Future Travelers; author, The Forgotten Ways; and coauthor, On the Verge

"Dave Browning understands that accomplishing big dreams requires small actions. In Hybrid Church you get practical first-hand experience in blending the megachurch and the microchurch into a consistent ministry philosophy...Hybrid Church is a must-read for leaders who want to hear from someone who is really getting it done in big and small ways!" Dave Ferguson lead pastor, Community Christian Church, and movement leader, NewThing

"Hybrid Church reinforces A. W. Tozer's idea that 'truth has two wings.' The truth comes in embracing apparent opposites...This is the delight and the strength of Hybrid Church...The strength of Dave's writing is that he is living in the intersection of these 'competing' models, and loving it! If you are open to a God who is never comfortable being placed in our small boxes, then you will love this book." Dr. Tony Dale president, House2House, and coauthor, The Rabbit and the Elephant

"In a day when people are strident about protecting their own methodology or perspective, Dave Browning puts forth a vital prescription for embracing the breadth of how God works through the church in all its various forms. This is not so much a methodology book as it is a way of being the church as God intended." Dr. Dan Lacich pastor for Distributed Sites, Northland Church

"Hybrid Church has something important to say to leaders of the emerging house church, as well as the largest megachurches in the world. You will appreciate the spirit of this book as much as its content." Steve Kim president, Ministry Direct (Church consulting and coaching for Korean churches)
