Overview

Where are the 18- to 35-year-olds? Why isn't the church engaging them? What about our current forms of worship isn't resonating with this group? If the church is to regain relevance with and connect to our rapidly, radically changing culture, it must pioneer new forms of worship and trailblaze alternative worship services for those growing up in this post-Christian age. In his previous book, The Emerging Church, author Dan Kimball discussed the holistic changes needed in our Christian communities as this new millennium unfolds. In his newest effort, Emerging Worship: Creating Worship Gathering for New Generations, Kimball ups the ante, focusing specifically on the steps church leaders can take when creating multisensory workship gatherings to reach these young generations. Kimball also unpacks several distinct approaches churches have successfully employed in birthing new worship gatherings, as well as effective ways congregations like yours are structuring their leadership and rethinking church and worship. Emerging Worship will inspire you and equip you in practical ways. As Kimball notes, we must be risk-takers to make changes in our churches. It's time to act; there's too much at stake to sit on the sidelines.
