Book Tour — Next Wave: Discovering the 21st Century Church

In Next Wave, Steve Pike, veteran church starter and Urban Islands Project founder, will give you the tools you need to minister effectively in the 21st century.


  • Rediscover the Church. From Building the Institution to Catalyzing a Movement.
  • Recalibrate the Timeline. From Launching to Emerging.
  • Reimagine Discipleship. From Discipleship as a Program to a Lifestyle of Disciple-Making.
  • Refresh the Metrics. From Bodies in the Pews to Disciples in the Marketplace.
  • Reinvent Funding. From Self-Sustaining to Sustainable.
  • Refocus Church Habits. From Calendar Driven to Mission Driven.
  • Rethink Team-Building. From Titles and Positions to Communities of Disciples on mission with Jesus.
  • Re-Consider Core Values. From Institution Focused to Mission Oriented.
  • Redeem Architecture. From Empty Buildings to Fully Utilized Assets.
  • Recommit to Multiplication. From Addition to Movement.
  • Reclaim the Ecosystem. From Isolating to Complementing.
  • Reactivate Spirit Dependence. From Duty to Necessity.


“Coming out of the pandemic, expect to see many books on the church and its future. But what sets Next Wave apart is that Steve Pike has actually led successful church multiplication at the grassroots and at the highest levels of organizational leadership. Long before the disruption of the pandemic, Steve saw the need to shift things in order to create space for a new wave of church planting. There may be no next wave if we don’t consider what he’s written here.”
—Daniel Yang, Director Of The Send Institute

“Every generation has to rediscover and reimagine the church and its mission. This book will help you do just that. The good news? There are ways of doing church that no one has thought of yet.”
—Mark Batterson, Author, Lead Pastor, National Community Church

“Steve Pike has done it again. He brings life experiences, expertise and a rich network of practitioners to provide conversations that will release imaginations on what the church’s next level effectiveness looks like.”
—Doug Clay, General Superintendent, Assemblies Of God, USA

“I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
John 17:22-23
