Are You a Faith Entrepreneur?

Are you a creative? An organizer? A people-lover? If you're interested in what Urban Skye is doing, let's talk!

Welcome to Urban Skye
a Home for Faith Entrepreneurs


The studies about Denver keep coming in. The percentage of "unchurched" residents is in the 90s, says one. Denver is one of the top 15 "post-Christian cities" says another. The response of the greater Christian community to these frightening statistics is predictable: "We need to plant more churches!" And so they come. They come from all over to plant churches. Some make it; many do not.  

For more than a decade Urban Skye has been addressing the "frightening statistics" in a different way. While the church-planting instinct will continue (and thank God it does), we seek to expand the Church's vision of how to grow the Kingdom of God in a city like Denver. Our response is to plant pastors, not just churches!

The reality is, most of our "spiritual, but not religious" friends and neighbors will not look to the church for guidance, at least not initially.  That does not mean they lack all faith; they just need trusted guides for their journey.   It is a new generation of these trusted guides that Urban Skye was created to serve.  

We are "faith entrepreneurs": non-traditional pastors, missionaries, disciplers, advocates and counselors. Urban Skye provides a home from which we can explore our creative calling as an extension of the Church for the sake of the Kingdom.   


Follow A Denver Book of Prayer month by month!

ADPB was the wildest project Urban Skye has ever initiated. In 2009, we decided that Denver should have its own common prayer book.  So, we "united the tribes" and invited twelve faith communities (ten churches and two missions) to collaborate on an original book of prayer, Denver style.  Together we discovered our theme, FAITH IN PARADOX, and then each community came up with their own word-pair around the theme.

Each month you'll meet a new Denver guide to offer you The Daily Office (morning, midday and evening prayers), Daily Readings and Weekly Spiritual Practices.


As this may never be repeated, enjoy this one-of-a-kind celebration of unity and diversity. May it help form your spirit, delight your soul, and remind you that you are not alone on the journey of faith.

Denver Community Church

Faith in Paradox: Inhale and Exhale
Saint: Henri Nouwen
Practices: Breath Prayer, Grace, Walk Around Your Block, Deep Breath & Centering Prayer

DCC is a beautiful story of redemption and faithfulness.  You would hardly know that the thriving church of today was a dwindling congregation ready to close its doors a decade ago. Their growth has come honestly from doing deep work among themselves, being faithful to understand and practice the biblical message, and taking seriously Christ's heart for the city, Follow them for a month and you'll learn how to spiritually "inhale and exhale" every day.
