30 Key Evangelical Movements

Brad Lomenick’s name has come up repeatedly over the years here at Thinking Out Loud. He has been a force in the Catalyst conferences, and we often reference and link to his monthly list of Young Influencers, younger leaders who are making a difference.

A few days ago he published a list of 30 links to organizations that he considers to be the top 30 vital movements currently shaping Christian community. Many, but not all, are American. Three of these I had never heard of. I’m taking the liberty of reproducing it here, but if you wish to comment, why not do so at Brad’s blog.

1. Hillsong

2. Passion

3. Catalyst

4. Jesus Culture

5. Exponential

6. Worship Central (London)

7. Verge/Austin Stone

8. Q

    Sometime, I’d like to see a list like this that offers a look at the geographic clusters of ministries, i.e. what happens where; especially when many of them do work together. For example:
    * The Colorado Springs cluster
    * The Atlanta cluster
    * The Chicago/Wheaton cluster
    * The Southern California cluster
    * The Grand Rapids cluster

  2. HOW could you have neglected ‘IGNATIUS’? HOW, I ask?
