A former stand-up comic, at 6’1” tall and heavily tattooed Nadia might not be your ‘traditional’ minister. But her calling has changed her life and led her to start an intentionally inclusive church called the House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, Colorado.
Her ability to own her own life and to be real about her faith journey have inspired many, as does her approach to inclusivity, which addresses head-on some of the issues the church is facing in 2016.
“Nadia Bolz-Weber has probably done more than any other pastor in recent times to poke therapeutic fun at the misdemeanors and flaws of overly-churched Christianity and Christians.”
– Phyllis Tickle, author of The Great Emergence
“Unforgettable, hilarious, insightful, self-effacing, ironic, and Lutheran… a deep, engaging, and surprising speaker.”
– Brian McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christianity
