Alan Hirsch on Rediscovering Holistic Ministry

+ Alan Hirsch, celebrated author and missiologist, reflects on his conversion, Christian ministry, and spiritual gifts that can revitalize the church. Using Ephesians 4 as an interpretive lens, he sees ministry practices embedded in God’s created order and considers methods that can help churches “extend the logic and impact of Jesus ministry” in their own communities.

As founder of 5Q Collective, Alan Hirsch writes and teaches on vital ministry practices through the lens of Ephesians 4. The 5Q Collective develops resources to activate the “latent capacities” of the body of Christ and “extend the logic and impact of Jesus’ ministry.”  He teaches regularly at Asbury Seminary, Fuller Theological Seminary, and George Fox Seminary, and Wheaton College where he is co-founder and associate faculty for the M.A. in Missional Church Movements.
