Out on the Edge: A Wake-Up Call for Church Leaders on the Edge of the Media Reformation (Book and CD-ROM), edited by Michael Slaughter and the Ginghamsburg Worship Design Team. Reform always happens on the edge--never from the center. Mike Slaughter offers a wake-up call to congregations about a digital media reformation under way on a global scale. Because this is a life-and-death matter for the local church--which is blinded by a literal emphasis on printed words instead of joyful experience--Slaughter slices through apathy and resistance toward reaching post-literate unchurched people with the gospel.
A ministry on the edge is a life-and-death proposition. Pre-Christians cannot be welcomed into the family of God unless an incarnational-cultural gospel is offered through images, symbols, and a language that communicates the call of Jesus.
A ministry on the edge is not abstract or cerebral. The edge is shaped as cells. The edge is sharpened by celebration. High-commitment volunteer leaders are called into a journey of high commitment, wellness, and purpose.
A ministry on the edge speaks the koine (or common) language of the people. Multi-sensory Worship (the CD-ROM) is not about broadcasting images and experiences toward the Christian television wasteland. Instead, a socially conscious ministry on the edge uses digital video-technology, projection equipment, desktop computing, and a relentless awareness of the felt need of pre-Christian seekers to bring about wellness and new purpose to hungry souls.
The CD-ROM is a worship team effort. Its content has been developed by Mike Lyons, Debra Welder, Kim Miller, and Jeff Friend, each extraordinary ministers of the Ginghamsburg staff.
