Too often the church is known for riding the waves of popularity and culture. What’s in style today is gone tomorrow. What if it’s possible to thoughtfully experiment, study, and test these ideas outside of the mainstream, but invite the established churches to help because they know the next generation and the survival of the church needs it? Is it possible that this is where true innovation takes place, in small trial batches before it can make it to the big time? This is the vision of the Ephesiology Laboratory.
