Emerging vs Emergent

From http://www.acts29network.org

The emerging church has been described by some as a controversial, twenty-first-century Christian movement seeking to engage people, especially the unchurched, living in postmodern or postcolonial cultures. Proponents call the movement an emerging "conversation" to emphasize its developing and decentralized nature. A common characteristic is the concept of missional living in which Christians are sent out into the world to be a blessing wherever they are.

Darrin Patrick, Lead Pastor of The Journey in St. Louis, MO and Vice President of Acts 29 Network, aims to answers some of these questions during talks he gave at the Francis A. Schaeffer Institute.
