What if we learned to be the church instead of going to church? What if we gathered to learn from God rather than to learn about God?

In Presence-Based Community, Pastor Jon Quesenberry digs deep into biblical truths to propose a reordering of focus and priority for the church. This thought-provoking book calls the reader to live in biblical community defined by mutual love and partnership with God in order to reveal His glory and extend His kingdom on the earth!

Pastor Quesenberry proposes that the church of Jesus is in a season of refining. During this season, he proposes that God is reshaping the church and doing away with spectator Christianity. In its place, God is calling and enabling His people to live and operate as a kingdom of priests; lovers of Jesus who minister to God as a primary occupation and minister to others in sacrificial love – a presence-based community!
