…a must-read for anyone looking to build or attend a thriving Christian church, or simply to get a fresh perspective into what “church” can look like.
-BlueInk Review


"The meta church is a group of culturally varied congregations combined together as one family with one dream that can only be fulfilled by our differences combined together as a fulfillment of the priestly prayer of Jesus Christ.

“If you’re looking for the hard science of what it takes to build a thriving church, look no further than Dr. White’s Astoundingly Joyful, Amazingly Simple. Biblically sound and culturally relevant, Dr. White’s strategy reveals the secrets every church leader longs for. More importantly, he has put them into practice at his amazing church, Washington Cathedral. If you’re in church leadership, you don’t want to miss out on this transforming message.”
Dr. Les Parrott, Author of Love Talk

“Like the TV commercial where they’re building an airplane while flying it, Dr. Tim White reworks today’s institutional church while reading the Book of Acts. Readers feel both his passion and his struggle, but we also see the joy and simplicity of the model represented by Washington Cathedral. Their ‘meta’ approach involves Tiny Little Churches that undergird everything they do, nonprofit foundations that minister to the community, and diverse cultural congregations that share the singular dream of building the greatest care network the world has ever seen. If you want practical ways for your church to move closer to the ideals found in the Book of Acts, this book is for you.”
Dr. Warren Bird, Research Director for Leadership Network, and co-author of Better Together: Making Healthy Church Mergers Work

“White’s book is born out of a 25-year education in the school of hard knocks in founding and leading Washington Cathedral into one of the most profoundly incarnational churches in North America.”
Jim Palmer, author of Divine Nobodies, Wide Open Spaces, & Being Jesus in Nashville"
