Abstract:

It has been described as the undisputed prototype of a new way of doing church and as the most influential church in North America and perhaps the world. Profiles of Willow Creek Community Church have appeared in the New York Times, Time magazine, Fortune, the Wall Street Journal, U.S.A. Weekend, and Christianity Today and on an ABC documentary reported by Peter Jennings. Willow Creek Seeker Services: Evaluating a New Way of Doing Church is a major, comprehensive study of this new wave that is influencing thousands of churches and their leaders and members worldwide. Based on scores of interviews and extensive research, the first part of the book describes Willow Creek's efforts to help unchurched individuals convert to the gospel through weekend seeker services. The concluding section of the book offers a theological evaluation, asking what we all can learn from the Willow Creek phenomenon.
