America’s Most Innovative Churches…2008
Each year, Outreach magazine comes out with multiple lists such as Fastest Growing, Largest, Most Innovative. There always seems to be some interesting churches on the lists, and to be honest, I’m always compelled to visit the websites of the lesser known ones. Just released: “America’s Most Innovative Churches of 2008″. Last year, I called each of the 25 churches that made the list. I was curious was made them “innovative”. From the data that I compiled, The Presentation Software that I found most often were MediaShout (for pc), and Propresenter (for Mac), thanks for keeping me straight Greg, 2 use powerpoint exclusively, and 1 uses Hymnals (yes really), no seriously. Does this surprise you? The part that surprised me, was if a church uses hymnals, and no presentation software, then what makes them innovative? Come to find out, they are church planting machines. That’s right, machines, and I’ll call them innovative all day, and glad they made the list. Thoughts about the list?
