- Featuring Rev. Walt Kallestad, Rev. Tim Wright and with special comments by Dr. Pat Kelfert of Luther Northwestern Seminary filmed before a live conference.
Walt Kallestad, senior pastor of the Community Church of Joy in Phoenix (the fastest growing Lutheran congregation in the United
States), is firmly committed to the stated vision of that congregation: That all may know Jesus Christ, and become a responsible member of his church, we share his love with joy inspired by the Holy Spirit. Taking Paul’s “I have become all things to all people, that I might by all means save some” as a motto. Rev. Kallestad has this vision for the church: that the church will be a vibrant, welcoming community, clear in its vision and creative, streamlined, and effective in its mission. His criticism that some of what passes for worship and preaching in contemporary congregations is simply boring
and incompetent is, alas, valid; his insistence that new times and new conditions require new forms of worship and new tools for evangelism is as true now as it has always been. Learn what entertainment evangelism truly is and how to make it effective in your own church.
