“Jesus never told us how to ‘do church’,” writes Mike Burnette. Instead, Christ talked about “how to be his church,” and He did that through parables. Burnette examines what three of those parables say about the organizational culture of a church in his new book, Parable Church: How the Teachings of Jesus Shape the Culture of Our Faith, published by Zondervan.
I’ll be talking to Pastor Burnette about his new book in this episode of the Influence Podcast. I’m George P. Wood, executive editor of Influence magazine and your host.
Mike Burnette is lead pastor of LifePoint Church in Clarksville, Tennessee, and an Assemblies of God minister. LifePoint was Outreach magazine’s fastest growing church in America in 2018. Parable Church is Pastor Burnette’s first book.
