Weird Church and Transformational Visioning

There are new forms of spiritual communities emerging all around us. The Spirit is birthing something in our midst! 

Rev. Don Remick, Transitional Interim Conference Minister at the Massachusetts Conference, has offered a glimpse into these exciting and intriguing ministries captured in the book Weird Church by Beth Ann Estock and Paul Nixon, as well as through the research of others. Don has introduced this material during the combined Fall meeting of the Northeast and Metropolitan Boston Associations, during a Super Saturday 'Eat n' Learn' opportunity, and again at the Hancock Church in Lexington in December 2018, where churches were invited to bring a team and learn more about how to become more healthy, faithful and effective in the changing landscape of ministry. Many attended via webinar as well. 

Following is a video of Don's Lexington presentation followed by supporting material that your church might find helpful. Questions about this program? Contact Don Remick at
