Weekend Lecture on the Emerging Church Movement

The Emerging Church: Discerning a Missional Milieu
Francis Schaeffer Institute Lecture Series at Covenant Seminary
St. Louis, Missouri
October 19-20, 2007

This coming Friday and Saturday, my pastor, Darrin Patrick, will be the keynote speaker at Covenant Seminary on the topic of the Emerging Church. The event fee is $25 and is open to Covenant students and the public. Pastor Darrin is lead pastor at The Journey church in St. Louis, MO and also Vice President of the Acts 29 Network.

The past couple of years has seen a sharp interest in the Emergent Church Movement, many times also called the Emerging Church Movement. Questions about the rise of Emergent/Emerging church types center around orthodox beliefs and attitudes toward cultural and societal norms and trends. In this weekend seminar, Pastor Darrin will speak about the nature of the movement and many particulars within churches that exist within it.

I have it from his own mouth that he will be using some of TeamPyro's Emergent-see Pomotivator posters as a part of his presentations. Congratulations, TeamPyro, for going cross-country.
