Churches are aging. Even among megachurches with their modern technology and huge number of members, whole generations are now missing. In order to reach the 18-35 year olds, churches need to incorporate alternative worship services into their ministries that meet the unique needs of the emerging generations. In a conversational, narrative style, author Dan Kimball guides church leaders on how to create alternative services from start to finish. Using anecdotes from his own experience at Graceland, Kimball presents six creative models, providing real-life examples of each type. Emerging Worship covers key topics including • Developing a prayer team • Evaluating the local mission field and context • Determining leaders and a vision-based team • Understanding why youth pastors are usually the ideal staff to start a new service • Recognizing the difference in values between emerging worship and the rest of the church • Asking critical questions beforehand
Dan Kimball is the author of several books on leadership, church, and culture. He is on staff at Vintage Faith Church in Santa Cruz, California, and is a professor at George Fox University. He enjoys comic art, Ford Mustangs, and punk and rockabilly music. His passion is to see the church and Christians follow and represent Jesus in the world with love, intelligence, and creativity.

Wes5 Stars Out Of 5May 10, 2006WesThe sample worship gatherings are great. Kimball explores how different churches around the country are communicating to the emerging generations. This isn't a "how to," but it should spark your imagination.
Russell John5 Stars Out Of 5May 25, 2004Russell JohnI have read a lot of books on worship, but this one is really different than most. It makes you think about what worship is, and asks why we do what we do currently in our churches - it looks at why emerging generations are not in our churches, but doesn't leave you hanging without any answers, but gives great examples of what worship services look and feel like that use art, sacred space etc. and why emerging generations relate to this approach to worshiping God.
