Welcome to the April issue of Next Wave Web
Magazine. We have another exciting issue for you, filled with helpful and interesting
NEXT WAVE is committed to 'profiling' ministries and churches for
your benefit, so that you can observe and study them from a distance. This month we take
you to Calvary Community Church, a mega church in the Los Angeles area, which just
launched a new service for 'a younger generation.' In doing so Calvary joins a growing
group of churches who are attempting to 'create a church within a church.' We encourage
you to read this photo-report and the interviews.
Seen THE MATRIX yet? This new movie
starring Keanu Reeves is creating quite a stir. Read our multiple reviews! Maria Hoshaw
discusses the evangelistic issues, while Rogier Bos wonders
about the worldview it proposes.
This is the fourth issue of NEXT WAVE, and we are happy to announce that
David Hopkins has joined our staff. David is a wonderful writer with a keen insight into
what is going on in our culture today. We encourage you to read his article "Superman
is dead: no more "hero-for-hire" clergy."
Ever felt like people didn't take postmodern culture very serious?
Brian McLaren responds to claims that 'postmodernism is just a phase'
and 'that it will pass soon'.
The Postmodern era isn't over yet, in fact, it is only just
beginning. NEXT WAVE is committed to writing about new church plants and movements and
ministry-strategies - but how about an older one. Captain Charles Roberts explains how the
Salvation Army is retooling itself for the 21st century!
