Neighborhoods: What is Working

How to Connect Neighborhood Churches to Your Local Community

Transcription of John and Peter's February 20, 2018 conversation with Paul Sparks, a leading voice in the growing Parish Movement. Paul has worked in more than 1,000 neighborhoods around the world to identify, connect, and support groups that want to have their neighborhoods flourish. In their conversation Paul talked about his own and his colleagues' work with local churches, academic institutions, and community organizations in the United States and abroad and offered ideas on how to translate their experiences into their listeners' own community-building work.
