"The Emerging Church" has exploded on the church scene over the past few years with major media like the New York Times, ABC, PBS, and Christianity Today carrying lead stories on this phenomenon. Media coverage, book publishing, blogsites, and conference events have created a flurry of response, both for and against the movement, that has resulted in praise, criticism, and misunderstanding of how its theology and practice will impact the future of the church. Is it a movement or a conversation? Is it dangerous or the church's last hope?

This CCC will take an in-depth look at these issues from multiple perspectives from key pastors and professors inside and outside the emerging church. You will hear candid presentations and responses from each of the speakers as well as have time to ask questions and dialogue with the presenters.
