Xulon Releases Call for Christians to Transform the Church for Modern Society

Charles Hagy uses his experience renewing his own church to inspire direction and change.


MAITLAND, FL— Within the pages of Charles Hagy’s new book, Sleepy Christians: How God is Awakening the Church to the Present Reality of His Kingdom, ($15.49, paperback, 9781545601877; $7.99, e-book, 9781545601884) readers will confront the “sleepy” nature of the Church, including the concerns of the millennial generation that the Church has become extreme and irrelevant to modern society. Beyond this, Hagy invites readers to regain a hopeful perspective for the future of the Church and renew their faith.


“My prayer is that each person who reads this book will be overcome with a hunger for more of God. That this hunger will cause them to long for and encounter more of His love and power,” states the author. “Our family and church have gone through a transformational process in recent years that has been a catalyst for transformation in our church and many other churches in our area. Though our church was outwardly successful, I longed to see the abundant life Jesus promised to His followers. Our family then went on a journey in search of more of God's love and transforming power. In the process we discovered that God's love and Kingdom were more available and accessible than we had previously thought possible. Our prayer is that our story will provide hope and direction to those who long for more of God's love and transforming power.”


Chuck Hagy is the founding pastor of Journey Church in central Ohio where he has served since 1998. He lives in Apple Valley Ohio with his wife and four children.
