Publishers Description
What did Jesus intend church to be? Whether you are a seasoned veteran of doing church or a postmodern seeker of spirituality, In Search of the Church will inspire you to settle for nothing less than an authentic experience of church the way Jesus intended it to be. Filled with humorous and sometimes heart-rending stories that will help you rethink the meaning of church. Asks foundational questions about how we have historically done church to cause you to refocus on answering the "why" question. Offers specific ideals of what church could be, to exhort you to reconsider how you might reform church in the future. Presents an honest examination of the affects of church on the author's journey, to encourage you to re-examine your own pilgrimage into the church. In Search of the Church will revive your hope for the church Jesus intended. Douglas A. Hagey studied at Eastern Pentecostal Bible College, Peterborough, Ontario; Central Bible College, Springfield, Missouri; and Fuller Theological Seminary, Pasadena, California. For forty years he has sought practical answers to the question, "What is the church?" He planted his first church in Hanover, Ontario in 1968, developed a youth ministry in Fresno, California during the Jesus People Revolution, and started Wellspring Christian Center in Dinuba, California in 1980. He participated in missions with YWAM in Europe, directed practical projects in Mexico, taught pastors' conferences in India and helped establish YWAM's Gleanings For The Hungry in California. For seven years he has taught the ecclesiology course, Concepts of the Church, at Pacific Life Bible College in Surrey, British Columbia. Doug and his wife, Ellie, have been involved in the Emergent Church movement with a house/caf church in Canada. They are currently participating in an incarnational-missional faith community in Shoreline, Washington.

Reviews - What do customers think about In Search Of The Church?

Wonderful Testimony of a 'Search of the Chruch'  Feb 26, 2010
I was surprised when I came by an opportunity to review this book that I would be the first. I read
In Search of the Church about a year ago and felt a number of emotions while reading it... At times
I felt excitement.. and drama... and sadness...and joy... all as I came aside Doug in his telling of
his journey. I have a bit of an advantage over some in that I've met Doug and know a little bit of his
story, but to read a more in-depth / comprehensive chronology of his journey was a real blessing.
We all have our own road to travel, but I found while traveling with Doug on his, I could identify
with many of the situations he encountered in life and in his pursuit of Christ. Although our
stories are often very different, they are, in many ways, very similar: We're all victims of the Fall
responding to a call from the One to return to Him.
I found Doug's story to be very encouraging and it was great to see the faithfulness of our God
in Doug's life at its many corners and intersections. Not only is this Doug's story.. it is in many
ways a part of His story.. which means it's a part of our story too. Definitely a good read.
When you put the book down you can't help but say, "Yes, God!"
