Pastor Ross Parsley believes that neither of those pictures is God’s desire. Instead, God wants His church to function as a family—a group of real people who love each other and care for one another’s needs, no matter how messy.

When you look at the church today, what do you see? A corporation with a CEO at the helm? A social organization that does good things for the community? Pastor Ross Parsley believes that neither of those pictures is God’s desire. Instead, God wants His church to function as a family—a group of real people who love each other and care for one another’s needs, no matter how messy. Our culture is dying for the kind of community that only the church can provide—if we are living as God intended: as a family, protecting one another, extending grace, and loving unconditionally. We are not called to be consumers who ask what the church can offer us. We are called to love deeply, fight fairly, and bring hope to a generation of people starving to belong to something greater than themselves. Welcome to the family. You belong here.

Why do more and more people advocate the idea that the generations should explore faith together, and what does the Bible have to say about this? How does this fit with our inherited model of age-related groups for learning and discipleship? And is it really practical and possible to have an experience of church where the youngest to the oldest share the same meeting space, service theme and time to worship?In Messy Togetherness Martyn Payne discusses Messy Church as an intergenerational expression of church and the benefits of this to the church community. He explores current thinking about faith development and gives a biblical rationale for the all-age approach, offering practical advice and sharing stories and ideas from across the Messy Church network. Also included are three complete outlines for Messy Church sessions, based on stories from the Old Testament, the Gospels and the Epistles.

Spirituality, discipleship, and evangelism are three critical, timeless disciplines used by the church to transform faith communities from followers to disciples and then to effective faith practitioners. It is not always easy to cultivate these disciplines, but as an empowered faith practitioner and doer of the Word, each of us can learn how to be revitalized and transformed. The Spiritual Order of a Messy Church is written for both laypeople and clergy who are intentionally pursuing personal and spiritual growth by using historic, grounded themes practiced by the early church—spirituality, discipleship, and evangelism. Author Santosh K. Marray describes the correlation between Acts 2:42–47 (the classical model of the early church for spirituality, discipleship, and evangelism) and the affirmations embodied in the baptismal covenant. He describes how both laypersons and clergy can develop a personal spiritual order to govern their lives and translate that spiritual structure to the congregations they may be leading and with whom they worship. In this challenging period where church growth is in decline, especially in mainline churches, The Spiritual Order of a Messy Church advocates a more robust spiritual engagement undergirded by a rule of order. Spirituality, appropriately defined as “formed for Christ,” could be achieved through the user-friendly approach advocated here. The message of Jesus is that the authentic Christian is one who practices what she or he believes.
