Why Neighborliness?

Cities are the epicenters of America’s culture. If the Church is going to recover from its current bout of cultural laryngitis, it will take faith-fueled church, business, and nonprofit leaders working together for their cities’ healing, development, and flourishing. That’s why the Neighborliness Network was created: to gather pastors with faith-fueled business and nonprofit leaders online to study and learn the community-development research, policies, and practices needed to help their cities and citizens flourish.

How Our Group Can Help

Collaborate daily with like-minded leaders from all over the country.

This is a community of doers. Ask honest questions that you can’t ask publicly without the fear of “saying the wrong thing.” Gain valuable perspective and get meaningful feedback from seasoned leaders who have navigated the waters of faith, policy, and culture.

Become peacemakers for your community.

The Bible teaches that shalom is “the peace that comes from wholeness.” Help your church learn the language of unity, root out divisive political discourse, and become a source of shalom for your city.

Help your city heal.

Learn how to navigate the diverse intricacies of your community’s perspectives, policies, and people so you can help bridge divides and heal old wounds.

What Is Next Wave?

Next Wave is an online community and resource hub for 21st-century church leaders doing ministry in hard places. And in today’s culture, everywhere is a hard place.
The Next Wave book cover.

There are three responses to waves:

  • Miss Them.
  • Get Pulverized.
  • Ride Them.

The Next Wave was created to help leaders like you ride the cultural swell of the 21st century that is sweeping through our cities and churches. In the Next Wave Community, you’ll learn from church-starter veteran Steve Pike and collaborate in real-time with other leaders doing ministry in hard places. With the Next Wave book, you’ll discover the twelve key shifts needed for effective ministry in the 21st century.
