Communicate the postmodern message in print
Emerging Church movement leaders are prolific writers. Their books are popular and they are well represented in Christian magazines and journals.
Communicate the message over the internet
Emerging Church websites and blogs abound on the internet.
Communicate the message in institutes of higher learning
Emerging Church leaders can be found on staff at many colleges and seminaries. They are also frequent guest speakers at these institutions.
Conduct seminars around the world
The movement gives high priority to seminars and participants in the movement are expected to attend these.
Form local communities of postmodern believers through “cohorts”
Cohorts are small groups that form over the internet and meet to discuss postmodern ideas. Emergentvillage.com recommends that these cohorts study McLaren’s A Generous Orthodoxy together.
Influence the leadership and membership of established churches
Through their published writings, seminars, and websites the movement’s ideas are influencing and affecting established churches of every kind.
Establish churches that are dedicated to the ideas and values of the movement
While this has not yet been as successful as they had hoped, a handful of Emerging Church congregations have been established.
Engage in social activism
While Emerging Church leaders sometimes claim the Church should not be linked to any political agenda, most of them are quite tied to a liberal political agenda. (For an idea of the kind of activism emergents are inclined toward, visit the Sojourners website at http://www.sojo.net/ — McLaren is on the board of this organization.)
