About the Author
Andrew Weeks has been a business executive and management/systems consultant in the U.S. and Canada. When returning to organized religion in the late 1980s, he became more sensitized to the needs of newcomers and aware of how few chueches were providing an organized response to those needs. He has developed a series of workshops and conferences in Canada and the U.S. for local and regional groups of churches, dioceses, and synods, and state and provincial associations.
