http://www.profrah.com is now live.
This website is dedicated to exploring, understanding, discussing, and strategizing the next evangelicalism. Many of these ideas and concepts can be found in my book, The Next Evangelicalism: Freeing the Church from Western Cultural Captivity (IVP Books, 2009).
One of the central tenets of the book is the recognition that Christianity throughout the world and in the United States is changing dramatically. However, the effectiveness of the Church is limited by the inability to see our cultural captivity, which leads to both a stagnation of vibrant faith and a repeating of bad ecclesiological patterns. This website hopes to provide a space for an authentic conversation about the next evangelicalism.
A few commitments of this website:
* we will strive to provide high quality content that focuses on the role of the church and the Christian community in the areas of urban ministry, multi-ethnic ministry, and justice ministry.
* our unique content can be used by local churches and Christian communities to begin to engage in a dialogue in your particular location.
* we will strive to be the gathering place for prophetic challenges, academic content, practical ideas, and reflective dialogue for those engaged in urban ministry, multi-ethnic ministry, and justice ministry.
Those who have worked to put this website together are dedicated to the ministry of the church and its place in an ever-changing social-cultural context. This space has been created to help churches start the conversation and engage in a way that furthers the dialogue. We want to provide an interactive online community that will encourage Christians all over the world to be effective servants in the areas of urban ministry, multi-ethnic ministry, and justice ministry.
