Dr. Christopher B. James joins me to talk about his research on church planting in Seattle, including the unique dynamics of the so-called “None Zone,” the four expressions of church that his extensive research identified (Great Commission Team, Household of the Spirit, New Community, and Neighborhood Incarnation), and the gifts and liabilities of neighborhood expressions of the church.

Chris is the Assistant Professor of Evangelism and Missional Christianity at the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa. He is also a pastor’s husband and practitioner who, along with his wife and family, is in the early stages of forming a neighborhood church expression. His research on “New Churches in the None Zone” will be published in the near future, but you can stay connected with his work at www.chrisbjames.com or by following him on Twitter.
