Praise for Integral Church: An Handbook for New Spiritual Communities

Barbara-Marx-Hubbard-200“A pioneering document. It will go down in history as perhaps one of the first statements of this form of evolutionary spirituality. Joran is an excellent scholar and minister. The handbook is very well done and should be a manual for all of us.”

– Barbara Marx Hubbard, Foundation for Conscious Evolution

Are you an Interfaith Minister that is leading a group or community of spiritual seekers and practitioners? Are you a new Interfaith Minister interested in forming a community in your city? Are you experiencing the challenges familiar to many small churches (membership, fundraising, volunteers) yet lack the access to a network of supportive peers? Are you interested in discovering tools and resources to help grow your small groups (book studies, youth programs, recovery, etc.)? Do you have accomplishments or best practices that aspiring Interfaith Ministers or leaders might learn from?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you’re not alone. Join the Interfaith Ministers Network — here — and enjoy these FREE videos, sponsored by Wisdom Circle Ministries and facilitated by Joran Oppelt (Integral Church).
