Dr. Jim Belcher to visit Geneva

Jim BelcherDr. Jim Belcher, nationally renowned pastor and author, will speak at Geneva College in Metheny Fieldhouse during chapel on Wednesday, February 1, 2012 at 10:15 a.m. He will also appear in John White Chapel of the Old Main at 7 p.m. that same day.

Belcher is the author of Deep Church: A Third Way Beyond Traditional and Emerging. In his book, Belcher examines the proposals of emerging church leaders. With insights garnered from his own journey as an emerging church advocate to more recent experiences as a PCA church planter, Belcher sets forth his vision of the deep church— “a missional church committed to both tradition and culture, valuing innovation in worship, arts and community but also creeds and confessions.”

Belcher is also the founding church planter and lead pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Newport Beach, California. He is the cofounder of the Restoring Community Conference: Integrating Social Interaction, Sacred Space and Beauty in the 21st Century, an annual conference for city officials, planners, builders and architects.

He previously led the Twenty-Something Fellowship and cofounded The Warehouse Service at Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena. He has served as adjunct professor at Azusa Pacific University and was cofounder of the Renaissance Project Skateboard Company. Dr. Belcher has been published in Leadership Journal and re:generation Quarterly, and he and his wife and four children live in Costa Mesa, California.

Both of Dr. Belcher’s appearances are free and open to the public.
