The Great Spiritual Migration Tour (USA)

You are invited to be part of the Great Spiritual Migration Tour!
Coinciding with the release of my new book (September 20), I’ll be in each of the following US cities: Tacoma, WA; Portland, OR; San Francisco, CA; Encino, CA; San Diego, CA; Phoenix, AZ; Denver, CO; Dallas, TX; Chicago, IL; Minneapolis, MN; Nashville, TN; Charlotte, NC; Atlanta, GA; Boston, MA; Manhattan, New York; Washington DC/Baltimore, MD. (For the UK leg of the tour, see
There will be two events in each city –

An Afternoon With Brian McLaren:

From 1:00 – 4:30 pm, you can be part of a leadership-oriented gathering for clergy and lay leaders – a mix of presentation, Q & R, and open conversation about ways to help Christianity become more Christian. Cost: $99. Register at link below.

SPECIAL OFFER: The first 24 people in each city who register will have a free copy of The Great Spiritual Migration waiting for them when they arrive. We will have a number of other free gifts for all participants as well.

Also – we will have some scholarships available in each city for seminarians and those who can’t afford the $99 registration. (Contact for more information.)

The Great Spiritual Migration Book Release Event:
At 7:30 p.m., you can be part of a free event open to the public. I’ll read from The Great Spiritual Migration: How the World’s Largest Religion Is Seeking a Better Way to Be Christian. Then I’ll offer some reflections on the book and its relevance to our current situation, and I’ll talk about the vital spiritual movement that I believe is needed and taking shape right now. There is no cost for the reading – and in addition to having books available for purchase and signing, we’ll make a number of free gifts available to all who attend. (No registration necessary – bring along some friends!)
