Minnesota has been our home for the past 7 1/2 years. I love this state. I love the people of Minnesota. And, I love the churches. One of the things that amazes me about this area is the number of influential churches and the number of national church leaders that have emerged from the Minneapolis/St. Paul regional area. Christianity Today recently ran a feature article on ministry in Minnesota. Many of the men talked about in this article are friends of mine. They are people who couldn't be more different in how they understand some theological nuances, and yet most of them are passionate about reaching their world for Jesus Christ.
If you want to understand ministry in Minnesota, and if you want a better understanding of some of this generation's "hot-button" theological issues, then the article Fire and Nice: Minnesota's Twin Cities are home to a collection of influential churches is an article you must read. You can find the article HERE.
