About the Author
I’ve been involved in church leadership for over 20 years. Early on I had the privilege of leading in one of the very first multisite churches in North America. I led the charge in helping The Meeting House in Toronto to become the leading multi-site church in Canada with over 4,500 people in 6 locations. (Today they are 17 locations with somewhere over 6,000 people attending.) In addition, I served on the leadership team of Connexus Community Church in Ontario, a North Point Community Church Strategic Partner. For seven years I served as a part of the four member Lead Team at Liquid Church in the Manhattan facing communities of New Jersey. In my time with the church we grew from 1 campus to 6 … and our attendance grew to over 3,500 people. (That’s actual numbers not “Pastor Inflated Numbers!”) At Liquid I oversaw communications, weekend service programming, campus expansion and special projects.
I have a dual vocational background that uniquely positions me for serving churches to multiply impact. While in the marketplace, I founded a dot-com with two partners in the late 90’s that worked to increase value for media firms and internet service providers.
I speak at conferences like Orange, WFX and various regional multisite church events. I’m a featured writer on Auxano’s Vision Room, ChurchLeaders.com and MinistryBriefing.
I’m married to Christine and together we parent two wonderful teens, Haley and Hunter. Collectively we try to keep our dog, Rory, from chewing everything that lands on the floor.

Like a good TV seres on Netflix I binge read this book, each story was so great I could not wait to hear the next. But now I need to go back and thing through how I'm going to apply the powerful lessons to my life. Rich provides some great questions and even some resources at the end of each chapter for you to use.
I pray God uses this book to rise up many Unreasonable Churches!

I am thrilled that Rich has brought these insightful stories of brave church leaders who have followed God's promptings and experienced incredible results together here in his book Unreasonable Churches: 10 Churches Who Zagged When Others Zigged and Saw More Impact Because of It. It is refreshing to be reminded with practical results from what many of us would consider successful churches, that there isn't always a 1,2,3 step process for helping our churches to be all that God wants them to be. To be all that God wants His church to be is to stay close to Him, listen and do.
Rich does a fantastic job providing inspiring stories of churches who choose to be unreasonable, and as a result, made a greater impact in their churches and in their communities. And before you say, that won't apply to my church, Rich does a great job finding churches of all different sizes, geographic locations, and resources to prove that God wants your church to grow, even more than you do.
Doesn't matter if your church is struggling or thriving, this book can help give you a new perspective and inspire you to think outside the box to make a BIG impact! Definitely recommend it. PLUS - Rich gives awesome discussion questions and actionable steps you can take away from every chapter!
