What is the church to make of the many new expressions of worship springing up across the nation and the world? A gathering of academic theologians, New Worshiping Community practitioners, and leaders from within Presbyterian councils met at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary to start the conversation. New Worshiping Communities documents those discussions and provides theological and biblical foundations to the 1001 New Worshiping Communities movement in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

The participants in this conversation have sought to put flesh on the bones of what a \New Worshiping Community\ is, by defining it as:


Seeking to make and form new disciples of Jesus Christ

Taking on varied forms of church for our changing culture


Gathered by the Spirit to meet Jesus Christ in Word and sacrament

Sent by the Spirit to join God’s mission for the transformation of the world


Practicing mutual care and accountability

Developing sustainability in leadership and finances
