The Church Growth Movement: innovating like it’s 1894 | discern.org

On a side note: as a former (very committed) "praise band/worship team" member, I would like these mega-churches to stop using musicians as props to lure people in; and I would like Christian musicians to think more carefully about how they might be simply "entertaining the crowds" at church, all the while thinking that they are doing God some great service. If our main goal is simply to "get people in the door" than we're Messed Up, indeed.

Steven Kozar started The Messed Up Church; he is an artist, musician, blogger and stuff.
