After talking with Jeff Vanderstelt at the Total Church conference, I want to clarify something from my previous post. Tim Chester is most definitely Jesus-centered and nothing close to Emergent (community centered). He advocates both gospel-centered community AND community-centered gospel. The previous post simply pointed out that there can be a difference in expression and practice, depending on which way one leans. This is beginning to sound awfully esoteric, perhaps even confusing, so I’ll let it rest there.
