Early emerging church history

Posted by on Jun 3, 2008 in blog links, missional | Comments Off

Ryan Bolger, one of the authors of Emerging Churches: Creating Christian Community in Postmodern Cultures and an assistant professor of church in contemporary culture at Fuller Theological Seminary, has written a short history of some of the early emerging / missional discussions that took place at Fuller. The article is called “Fuller Seminary and Emerging Churches“. If you are interested in ecclesiology, the emerging church, missional churches, or church history, you will probably find this article very informative. I especially appreciate how he recalls some of the motivations that brought several people together to discuss the church.
