Emergent Church and Church Planting


Networks of ecumenical and interfaith congregations and emergent church communities challenge traditional church structure by placing increasing emphasis on discerning the Holy Spirit and sharing personal faith stories and less emphasis on rituals and systematic theology. The Episcopal Church partners with Fresh Expressions of Church to foster the mission of new and unconventional faith communities and to train traditional clergy to be aware of evidence of the Holy Spirit at work outside the walls of the church.
