Barna changes strategy

Change of Perspective for George Barna after 20 years.

“Starting in 2005, these [BarnaBooks] branded books will reveal what is happening in the emerging Church – not the postmodern, candles/coffee/couches types of anti-modern ministries, but the Revolutionary ministry that is percolating to the surface of American society through new forms of ministry such as the cyberchurch, house churches, marketplace ministries, and tribal faith experiences. While I will write a few books for the line – the first, Revolution, is scheduled to release in September 2005 – most of the books will be written by the new generation of spiritual leaders who are propelling the Church into the 21st century with an intense passion for God and a commitment to being the Church rather than worrying about protecting the forms and institutions that have been in place.” Link

George, all I can say is . . . welcome on board! Now lets get to work. I look forward to your new book next month.

Anyone wanting to get in on the house church side of emerging church in USA should seriously consider being at the National House Church Conference, Sep 2-5
