Gone for Good? Negotiating the Coming Wave of Church Property Transition is now available. This collection of essays sheds light on how church communities can transform their properties to serve their neighborhoods. It contains a chapter written by Phil Burns, Andre White and Jill Shook--members of the Congregational Land Committee--about having affordable housing built on religious land.

Other essays explore spiritual, sociological, and practical aspects of church property transition, including:

     • assessing the impacts of churches on their neighborhoods—and the gaps they will leave behind 
     • developing church property into affordable housing 
     • transforming ministry in rural churches 
     • partnering with Indigenous peoples to return land 
     • fostering cooperation between congregations, developers, and city planners 
     • navigating zoning laws 
     • working with foundations and funders
