Progress Report on Class Project

We have chosen the JC’s place as our field site. JC’s place is (apparently) an inter-confessional youth program developed by the Emmanuel Christian Center that holds worship services on Wednesdays at 7:00 PM, consisting of praise session, preaching and an altar call. Practitioners also hold local meetings (Cell Groups) at youth leaders’ houses. Sunday morning services are held under the name of “discipleship” at 8:30 AM.

The Emmanuel Christian Center is located at Spring Lake Park, a suburb located close to Anoka County, to the north of Minneapolis, and the program reaches youth of ages ranging from 13 to 22. Some information is available on the program website (www.jcsplace.com) but a visit will be required to learn more about the place. The website also features a moderately used bulletin board (http://pub37.ezboard.com/bjcsplace23685)

We will attend services for the first time on the October 29th (Wednesday) meeting and try to get a hold of the leadership, which will likely be Pastor Brandon Gregory (Campus Ministry) or Pastor JJ Slag (Youth Pastor)
