A timely and contemporary look at the many forms of the burgeoning "emerging church" movement. Contemporary music, a shirt-sleeved pastor, and Starbucks coffee. Not a typical church service for most people, but it is becoming more popular. Traditionally, churches have set church services, music, and speakers to fit the expectations of the congregation. Changing the service to appeal to a "contemporary crowd" is a recent phenomenon. Many people have grown disillusioned with the church and want a church on their terms, not their parents'. Enter the emerging church movement. Its goal: to help churches to reach their full potential and to reach a wider audience without compromising their core beliefs. Deals with a worldwide movement.
