What Is the Emerging Church Movement? Part 2

A recent document entitled “Response to Recent Criticism“ (2005) was signed by Tony Jones [national coordinator of Emergent in the US; Ph.D. candidate at Princeton], Doug Pagitt [pastor of Solomon’s Porch in Minneapolis], Spencer Burke [founder of], Brian McLaren [founding pastor and minister-at large of Cedar Ridge Community Church outside Baltimore], Dan Kimball [pastor of Vintage Faith Church in Santa Cruz], Andrew Jones [founder of], and Chris Seay [pastor of Ecclesia of Houston]. It seems safe to say that these seven guys are among Emergent’s most significant influencers and leaders.

(For what it's worth: I've had lunch twice with Tony Jones and Doug Pagitt, and some email exchanges with Andrew Jones and Dan Kimball.)
