Make Way for the Metro-Evangelical

by Rev. A. J. Iovine

My favorite article from the linked op-ed in today’s Wall Street Journal:

From a missionary standpoint, cities have always been centers of cultural activity and potential congregations. Mr. Keller’s followers see the challenge to influence the culture as a neglected calling for evangelical churches that have become too complacent on their suburban campuses. And given the pervasive secularity and competing temptations of a city like New York, if Christians can make it there, they can make it anywhere.

A growing trend is to bring Christ to urban centers … taking our Lord out of the comfort zone of the suburbs and touching those who need to hear the message of salvation from Jesus Christ. 

I think the urban emphasis of Rev. Jim Buckman of our New Jersey District embodies this move.
