Turangawaewae: The Search for A Churchless Faith in New Zealand.

  • Alan Jamieson Wellington Central Baptist

Abstract

Jamieson gets under the raw figures and notes that the rapid growth of pentecostal and charismatic churches often disguises a large burn-out rate which demands response from Christian churches who take Jesus' command to make disciples seriously.

Author Biography

Alan Jamieson, Wellington Central Baptist
Alan Jamieson is a pastor who has also trained as a sociologist. His PhD, on which the book is based from which this paper is taken, researched why people leave their church and their journeys of faith outside the church. From this study he and others at Wellington Central Baptist have created resources for individuals who leave church and are developing resources for churches to help them respond to and care for those who leave. This work has already helped many people in their ongoing journey of Christian faith.
