Borderland Churches: A Congregation’s Introduction to Missional Living

Gary Nelson addresses the disconnect between religion and God by looking at what is happening in our culture and in our churches. He demonstrates a passion for the Church, the people and for God and calls for us to once again be passionate followers of Jesus Christ who listen with compassion as we navigate the waters of change in our churches.

Future Faith Churches
Co-Authored with Don Posterski

How can a church survive into the next millennium? That is the question Don Posterski and Gary Nelson asked themselves while researching and writing ‘Future Faith Churches’. This book shows the way through to the 21st century by examining 14 examples of churches — from Pentecostal to mainline liberal — that are combining the strands of evangelism, social action, church growth, and strong leadership to create the fabric of their worshipping community.

Special Monday Night Concert: Tim Timmons


Join us for a special Monday night concert with Christian artist Tim Timmons at 7:00pm at the Hampton Roads Convention Center.

Admission is free – load up your church van!

By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going. (Hebrews 11:8)
