Founded in March 2006 by Kent Shaffer, Church Relevance explores the intersection of theology and methodology – what we do vs what Christ said.

Kent Shaffer – Founder

As founder of Open Church, Kent Shaffer spent 4 years in prayer, research, beta testing, and relationship building to better understand how to spark Christian collaboration and resource sharing globally. Today Open Church is building an open platform of key Christian initiatives and free resources.

I also write at ChurchRelevance.com, co-founded a design and marketing firm, launched and sold a few tech startups, and gave strategic counsel to groups such as YouVersion, Saddleback Church, charity: water, JESUS Film, Zondervan, and OneHope. My ministry roots began as a missionary’s kid in Peru and evolved into 10+ years of youth and children’s ministry at Church on the Move and LifeChurch.tv.
