Finding Jesus on the Metro, Nixon’s first book since his bestseller I Refuse to Lead a Dying Church!, explores what it means for a church to be on a ministry journey into the unchartered territory of unprecedented social change in 21st century America. Written from an urban perspective, Nixon has created an excellent tool for church leaders that: 1) helps them to recognize that their ministry must change in order to be effective and 2) equips them with the necessary resources to implement and cultivate this change. Divided into two sections, Finding Jesus on the Metro first looks at the communities and cultures that shape and influence this generation of young adults and then describes how churches can be a part of this influence and outlines the journey that its leaders and members will go on as they become the faith community that the newest generations of Americans need.

Paul Nixon, an ordained minister in The United Methodist Church, lives in Washington D.C. and works with young adults in creating new expressions of faith community. He serves as a New Church Development Strategist for the Path 1 project of The United Methodist Church and consults with churches and denominations throughout the U.S. He is the author of I Refuse to Lead a Dying Church (The Pilgrim Press, 2006).
