A new, postmodern church

The emerging church offers and encourages a new way of doing and being the church, according to Eddie Gibbs, co-author of "Emerging Churches: Creating Christian Community in Postmodern Cultures."

While it largely resonates with an 18- to 34-year-old audience — the first fully postmodern generation — the emerging church is popular with older Christians and encompasses a broad array of traditional and contemporary churches. A PowerPoint presentation, prepared by Gibbs and offered online at the website of the Center for Congregations, explores this movement and explains key elements and trajectories of the emerging church by someone with a working knowledge of the movement.

The Center for Congregations strengthens Indiana congregations by helping them find and use the best resources to address their challenges and opportunities. The Center shares its learning with a national audience.
