Who We Are
What is The Practicing Church?
We are followers of Jesus known for their kindness, generosity and service to others.
We believe that living into the way of Jesus takes practice – and that our faith is much more than something we add to our already busy, stressed out lives, but rather, it is a way of life.
So many of us want to live in the way of Jesus—pursuing a life that is deeply soulful, connected to our real needs and good news to our world. Yet too often our methods of spiritual formation are individualistic, information driven or disconnected from the details of every day life. If Jesus of Nazareth demonstrated and taught a revolutionary way of love that is actually possible, alive with healing and hope, then we need a path for experiencing that revolution in our everyday lives.
As The Practicing Church, we aim to do this through shared practices and community experiments. We want to practice the way of Jesus in the places we live, weaving a fabric of care and friendship, and participating in God’s redemptive work in the world.
