The institutional church change we long for is already happening.


Crunching more data maybe helpful but will not revolutionize, let alone save, a declining church. We need creative thinking done by people who are not afraid to face the institutional church.
Indeed, the change we long for is already happening. It is happening on the margins in ministries to the least, the last, and the lost. Written by two creative pastors with different but successful ministries, this breathtaking book will show you how the church can live out its mission and ignite a movement.
If we pay attention, we can let this Jesus Insurgency create new life.

Rudy Rasmus

Dr. Rudy Rasmus is an author, humanitarian, and coffee-man with a passion for outreach to the world’s most challenged communities. He co-pastors the St. John’s United Methodist Church in Downtown Houston with his wife Juanita. A church that began with 9 existing members in 1992, St. John’s has grown to thousands where every week people of every social and economic background share the same pew.

Rudy Rasmus has raised over $100 million for his work with the world's most economically disadvantaged communities and has completed over $30 million in affordable housing projects created to provide housing opportunities for the previously homeless in Downtown Houston. For many years Pastor Rudy coordinated domestic and global anti-hunger initiatives in conjunction with Beyoncé’s concert tours and most recently teamed up with Tina Knowles Lawson and Beyoncé to help Houstonians in the wake of the Covid19 pandemic.

Rudy and Juanita have been married for 35 years and are the proud parents of two amazing daughters, a phenomenal Son-in-Law, and two of the cutest grandkids in the universe.
