Make Way for the Metro-Evangelical

A new generation of church founders believes that city centers will be the beachhead of a new evangelization. While U.S. cities aren't growing as fast as overseas metropolises like Lagos or Shanghai, their renaissance since the crime-ridden 1970s is one of the cultural headlines of the last generation, and it has been accompanied by burgeoning urban congregations.

I would hope people in the metro areas would know What to Look for in a Church!
Gil Rugh wrote:
It would be great to have a better society with less social problems. However, we must be wise and not diffuse our strength by addressing only the symptoms and miss fixing the real problem. The real problem is that people are sinners who need the Savior!
