The structures that support religious life are changing. Faith communities and their leaders are responding to these changes by creating alternative structures of belonging through collaboration
Drawing upon four years of research on religious organizations in Cascadia and the broader Pacific Northwest, I describe how collaborative partnership is more than a strategic response to a shifting religious marketplace; it is a way of life. These emerging structures, born in a region that incubates religious futures, invites both scholarly attention and practical consideration.
