From the bestselling author of Raised to Stay comes a hope-filled, practical path forward for our churches to rebuild from the rubble of deconstruction and the discouragement of recent years and become the world-changing family of God again.

God’s Word provides us the foundation, floor plan, and framework for a holy, healthy, and safe Church. Yet in recent years, our culture’s deconstruction of faith, the “great resignation” in Church leadership and attendance, and the devastation of spiritual abuse have broken down God’s beautiful design.

In The House That Jesus Built, bestselling author Natalie Runion gives insight and encouragement to all the “stayers” who want to be a part of rebuilding our churches, brick by brick. With personal stories and practical ideas, she shows us how we can:

  • Reengage our church communities while acknowledging past hurt and disappointment
  • Reflect and pray as we ask how we as leaders and Christ followers have contributed to pain in our churches today
  • Use the book of Acts as the blueprint for empowering the family of God to be the family of God
  • Understand how even the apostles wrestled with their role in the early Church but remained committed to love God, love people, and make disciples
  • Be unified on the one foundation of Jesus Christ

The House That Jesus Built will stir your heart to see God’s churches healthy, whole, and back on mission with the Great Commission and Great Command. As Natalie reminds us, we are the Church. We are the ones who can partner with Jesus to rebuild something beautiful out of the rubble—and back on the Rock.
