This is Part 2 of my response to your questions from the 2013 Blog Survey.
I know that several years ago you paused your ministry of planting organic churches to focus on helping the poor and give attention on your more general ministry of the deeper Christian life. Are you still in that season or have you resumed your work with organic church?
For those who are new to the blog, two years ago I announced that my ministry was shifting focus. I’ve not been involved in “organic church” since that time. That includes planting new churches, encouraging and equipping existing ones, and writing books on the subject.
In fact, I’ve not written a book on ecclesiology since 2009. And the last church I planted was in 2010, four years ago.
Instead, my writing focus has been on “The Deeper Journey.”
Much of my time “on the ground” is spent helping the poor and developing relationships with non-Christians, which takes a lot of time.
So Frank Viola shouldn’t be considered “the organic church” guy. Most of my books aren’t on that topic, and the same is true for my podcast episodes and blog posts. In fact, I’ve only written 3 books on that topic!
