Got More Questions?

This comic book is basically a short introduction to a much longer conversation. If you're a Christian who's only experienced today's institutional form of church, you've probably got several lingering questions. For instance, what about pastors? What about sermons? What about baptism, spiritual authority, the Lord's Supper, and tithes?

Find the answers

Unchurching: Christianity Without Churchianity was written to help readers like you deconstruct the institutional church model and reconstruct a more biblical vision of genuine church community. So, check out the video below, and make sure to order your copy on Amazon today.

Explainer Videos

I first started sharing concepts for the book by drawing short, animated, explainer videos for my previous blog. Check out the samples below. If you like them, you can find the entire series here.

The Podcast

In addition to the book and the videos, I also co-host The Unchurching Podcast where my friend Gunnar and I tackle related topics and interview guests about their own unchurching journey. Listen to a few episodes below, then check out the rest, either online, or on iTunes, or on Google Play.

Many, Many Thanks

I want to thank every single person who backed this project on Kickstarter. But I especially need to call out a few specific folks who really went above-and-beyond. (If the person’s name appears as a link, please feel free to click on their name to learn more.)

Extra Special Thanks

Chad Kennow has been a longtime supporter of my work. He was not only the biggest backer of this project, but possibly its fiercest promoter too. If you read the book, you already saw Chad's cartoon-self, seated across from a cartoon version of yours truly, along with a few other friends.

Very Special Thanks

Henry Hon is a fellow author who has quickly become a good friend. If you like my work, you should check out Henry’s book, One: Unfolding God's Eternal Purpose from House to House. It's available both for purchase or for free online reading.


Special Thanks

I need to give a virtual-high-five to the other three friends seated with me and Chad at the cartoon table: Angela Burns, Justin Cook, and Khori Whittaker. Thank you all for your generous support and encouragement. (Also, a big thank you to Glendo Grider for helping me with all the cartoon likenesses.)

Additional Thanks

As I said, lots of people made this project happen but I especially want to thank Sharyn McEwan, Roy G. Neely, Ryan Northcutt, John Schade, my brother-from-another-mother Keith Leedham, Tim Truong, Joel C. Cooper, my podcast co-host and good friend Gunnar "Baconsizzle" Falk, Deky Junaedi, Chris and Geana Rust, Scott Lazaros, Bill and Jean Manduca, Denise Perry, the fine folks at, plus longtime friends Adam and Carli Johnson, and Susan and Greg Raborn.

I also want to thank all the supporters who gave to this project anonymously. Your generous contributions actually accounted for a whopping 15% of the total funds raised. Obviously, it pains me not to thank all of you publicly, but please know I’ll always be indebted to you personally.
