The megachurch and vanishing evangelical young people, per Michael Spencer’s original post February 11, 2008.
You’re gonna think for a second you’re hearing the intro theme we all know and love but just wait. It’s different every week and hasn’t found a place to land yet. During the program listen for Van Til!
Discussion includes: Minor league baseball, cow pies, clown service, church shopping, Clay Spencer goes to UK (University of Kentucky, not the United Kingdom).
You haven’t missed anything. The very early episodes are the hardest to come by but I do have the next five in a row or so.
Today: Is Michael Spencer a Christian? New school year brings several students from China. I Have My Doubts is available via the iMonk archive site. Finally a few thoughts on Ravi Zacharias.
Internet Monk Compound beneath Saint Sades Maryland mentioned for the first time as the intro begins taking shape, as well as the BHT wonderdog Van Til handling the technical aspects of production.

This is the last episode of Internet Monk Radio. The broadcast is short and quite a bit of this one is music. Michael acknowledges being sick but going into the Advent season of 2009 he fully expected to get better.
Intro: Update on the book, teaching Mark, Osteen’s ministry lacks Jesus, Losing Mum and Pup,
Today’s program: A letter from a reader and Internet Monk’s response. Choice A: Liturgy, historical connection to tradition, very little Bible teaching. Choice B: Strong biblical teaching, modern worship. Is there a C? Why can we not have the best of both?
Shoutout to Van Til in the intro. Then a discussion of evangelical liturgy and the call to worship.
In the second half: veteran worship and ministry leaders, with skill and experience, being shown the door. Is it just to replace them with younger guys that can be told what to do? The focus on church growth is coming back to bite evangelical churches in the long run.
