Publisher's notes ---
With this issue,
Next-Wave marks the beginning of its third year of publication. Meeting
with Rogier Bos, Next-Wave founding editor, I realized how much he
imprinted the Next-Wave vision.
My idea was to
start a web-only magazine that would talk about ministry to the next
generation and new methods of doing church. Rogier elaborated on the
idea by making postmodern culture, and the Christian ministry response
the theme of Next-Wave.
We are both proud
of the fact that Next-Wave contains some of the best and most intriguing
content on this subject.
This month's issue
is no exception. Andrew Careaga's article on Cyber-spirituality and Dann
Pantoja's New Year's prayer offer a challenge for the new year.
writes on experiential worship and Tom Gray discusses worship and church
growth. Brett Dewey explores the theological basis for Evangelism.
Brenda Seefeldt's article on Beyond Summer Camp Ministry challenges
youth ministers to push the edges. Eric
Stanford reviews In Search of Authentic Faith. Stephen Shields offers a
link to an extensive outline and review of The Leadership Challenge.
Once again, I am
pleasantly surprised and
grateful for the continued contributions of so many to the pages of
Next-Wave. Articles from new authors are offered every month. If you are
