You may have already seen this list that Outreach Magazine released late last week. It is their finding of America's 25 most innovative churches. I find lists like this interesting, and always enjoy reading them; but I wonder what you think... are these the churches you would have put on the list. Some, I would agree wholeheartedly on (like LifeChurch and Granger). Others (like Willow and Saddleback) almost scream to be on the list just because of their past; but I wonder... are they really all that innovative anymore?
Don’t get me wrong… I love both Willow and Saddleback (and have a good amount of readers here from both churches); but every church has a natural cycle of innovation; and I wonder if some on the list made it on soley because people expect to see them there. For those familiar with some of the churches on the list… what innovation have these churches shared recently?
Also, there are a couple of new churches on the list that I’m not familiar with… can anyone shed some light on places like The Sanctuary or Living Word?
What say you?!
