Overview

Most Christians would agree that the purpose of the church is to lead people into active, committed discipleship to Jesus Christ. Yet if this is the case, shouldn’t the goal of making disciples drive everything the church does? For example, shouldn’t the primary job of staff members be to recruit and mentor the laity in fulfilling their own call to ministry, rather than the staff members performing the tasks of ministry themselves? Shouldn’t the task of reaching out to those who have yet to answer Christ’s call to discipleship be more important than maintaining programs for those who already have? Thus, Easum opens the portal to the OtherSide, that place beyond the Christendom Era and its mechanistic, by-the-numbers approach to church life. Be prepared for a bumpy ride, with treasured assumptions, privileges, and traditions shattered along the way.
