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.

Advent approaches, get your Urban Skye Guides now!

Each Advent guide is created around a theme that we overlay on the Nativity. We use a four-week format that invites you into the story and then into a personal response. With imaginative language and a disarming beauty, we appeal to the spiritually curious regardless of faith orientation. As we see it, Advent is the most natural time of the year to invite anyone to explore the origin story of Jesus.

Please peruse our guides!


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.

The Next Level Church (TNL)

Faith in Paradox: Accepted and Changed
Saint: Augustine of Hippo
Practices: Breath Prayer, Examen, Journaling, Acts of Humility
TNL is a little different.  They gather on Tuesday nights and meet in an iconic, old theatre.  Most 
don't know that TNL was once one of the fastest growing churches in America literally changing 
the experience of church for thousands of people. What has impressed me, though, is that they 
have allowed The Spirit to change them over the years; they are quite different from where they 
started becoming what they could not have anticipated. That's why they are such great guides 
for us - they know about change!  You'll get this through their October readings which include a 
quote by Augustine (my favorite is on day 26), the Bible or others (Monte Python...) followed by 
a short, eclectic and engaging reflection.  With the Church Calendar beginning next month, TNL 
will help us see how God has been changing us since last Advent.
