Who will lead the church in the next decade? These young Christian leaders, all 40 or younger, represent THE FUTURE OF THE CHURCH IN GHANA.
They represent a new breed. Burned out on denominationalism, they avoid labels and aren’t comfortable with old church models. Turned off by religious hype, they crave authenticity. Products of the digital age, they are more media-savvy than their elders-and they intend to use 21st century technology to reach people who have been turned off by toxic religion.
Today’s emerging leaders aren’t afraid to push new buttons, sail into uncharted waters or blur the line between secular and sacred. Their faith has been shaped not only by the doctrine of the bible but also by Instagram, iPods and instant messaging. They are the first generation to use blogging as an evangelism tool in cyberspace. Today’s emerging leaders fully intend to reinvent church, even if it means changing the music, tampering with ineffective church programs and barbecuing our sacred cows.
These 10 leaders certainly are not the only individuals who should be recognized by PLEASURES MAGAZINE. (Our selections were culled from nominations submitted by leaders in charismatic and Pentecostal churches throughout Ghana.) But we believe the church has never seen a more gifted group of men and women step forward to carry the torch into the future.
