Darren Patrick is the founder of The Journey family of churches in St. Louis, where my family is presently attending. Darren is the best speaker I have ever heard in person and is obviously gifted in many different areas besides speaking. He is an excellent person to learn about the Emerging Church from as he both knows many of the main players and also has discernment concerning what is and is not healthy about the different aspects of the movement.

Covenant Theological Seminary, where I go to school, invited Darren to do a lecture series on the Emerging Church several years ago and have put the series on line for free, which can be found here (their website appears to struggle in Google Chrome so if the link doesn’t work try Firefox or Internet Explorer).
