Uncool People Need Jesus, Too
Update: See this new post by Bill Streger, who clarifies what he meant to say and apologizes for any misunderstanding he caused.
Bill Streger, an Acts29 pastor:
I have yet to assess a church planter who wants to move to a declining, smaller city and reach out to blue collar factory workers, mechanics, or construction crews. Not one with an evangelsitic strategy to go after the 50-something administrative assistant who’s been working at the same low-paying insurance firm for three decades now.
Why is that? I can’t offer a definitive answer. It could be that God is legitimately calling an entire generation of young pastors to turn their focus to a small segment of the population that happens to look very much like they do.
