You just might be emerging

If your pastor spends more time at Starbucks or another coffee shop than he does at the office…you just might be an emerging church

If there are more than 5 bald men under the age of 35 in one service…you just might be an emerging church

If those bald men have some sort of facial hair patch…you just might be an emerging church

If you can hear the worship music from the parking lot during the winter when all the windows and doors are shut…you just might be an emerging church

If you have more than one computer in your tech booth–all of them Mac….you just might be an emerging church

If you HAVE a tech booth…you just might be an emerging church

If half of the congregation writes a blog…you just might be an emerging church

If your pastor and staff can each be reached by more than 3 electronic devices at the same time…you just might be an emerging church

If you recognize the names Tony Morgan, Perry Noble, Mark Batterson, Dan Kimball and Scott Hodge and know they are not clothing designers’ names…you just might be emerging.

If one or more of the church staff shops at Buckle…you just might be an emerging church.

If you call yourself Christ-followers and not Christians…you just might be an emerging church.

What did I leave out?
