Progressive Pentecostals

John Glass, Elim's General Superintendent always writes a quality editorial in Direction Magazine. In the April edition he draws attention to the term "Progressive Pentecostals". The term is used by Donald Miller and Tetsunao Yamamori, in their book, Global Pentecostalism: The New Face of Christian Social Engagement, to describe the rise of a pentecostalism that combines social action and evangelism.

John commented that this kind of two pronged outreach approach was becoming more common in Elim. Later in the magazine the Elim Church in Kingstanding is featured and it certainly exemplifies progressive pentecostalism.

You can catch up with John on his blog
