Imagine local churches filled with people from all cultures, generations, hues, and backgrounds — each one a true cross-section of its own neighborhood or city demographics. Imagine these churches enjoying rich fellowship internally, providing substantive ministry externally, and attracting a not-yet-believing world to the promise of the gospel. That would be remarkable. That would be church like heaven on earth. And Pastor Chris Beard believes any local congregation can attain this. These pages provide theology, story, and practical insights for how your church can be that kind of Remarkable.
“Pastor Chris Beard adjusts the temperature as he propels the Church forward with this reconciling work. I am excited for pastors, lay leaders, and small groups to grab this book. It will definitely be a difference-maker. Get this book and read it; you will be glad you did!”
— Pastor John P. Perkins, Common Ground Covenant Church, Jackson, MS
“The men of Issachar knew what time it was and what to do. My friend Chris Beard has written a book that informs us of what time it is, guides us on what to do, and gives us the tools to do it.”
— Dr. Samuel M. Huddleston, Assistant Superintendent of Northern CA / NV Assemblies of God
“In Remarkable, Chris Beard provides a theologically sound, experientially credible, and practically engaging road map for pastors seeking to develop a heart and church for all people. In so doing, he answers the what, why, and how questions of homogeneous church transition, rooted in the story of Peoples Church Cincinnati. Remarkable is certainly a title that I will be recommending regularly.”
