Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church talks about the Emerging Church. If you are unfamiliar with this terminology this is a good introduction. Basically the Emerging Church is trying to address the glaring need the church has in America to re-reach our culture. Another word you may be hearing is the word “missional”. The underlying assumption is that the American church must evaluate the strategy that we have to be the mission to America. Every believer must see themselves as mission oriented, ie missional if we are to revive the church in America.
