we're no emerging church, but we are a somewhat larger community (over 1000) beginning to experiment with a leaner, more fluid paid staff utilizing less-defined roles. we presently have no youth pastor and have suspended our search for one believing that the Lord may be leading us in this direction. i would be very interested in hearing from you about the practices of the larger emerging communities you are in touch with. is there any way you could point me in their direction so i can do a little investigating of my own?


Jason, you are definitely on the pioneering early/adopter side of things. My guess is you'll be teaching us down the road...

You might want to talk to Dan Kimball/Vintage Faith or Doug Pagitt, who both have fairly large emerging congregations as to what their approach is to staff positions...


thanks ryan...blessings!

  • Hi, welcome to my former blog! My name is Ryan Bolger, and this is where I posted my thoughts on Jesus, culture, new forms of community, among other things. Come visit me at my new blog: http://www.ryanbolger.com. I still teach at Fuller Seminary in Southern California where I'm doing some writing as well. Feel free to bounce around the new or old website -- I hope it might stir your imagination -- feel free to stir mine as well by leaving some comments, preferably at the new site... Peace...
