Rob Bell Profile

mlive.com ran an article yesterday that is a profile of Rob Bell.

Some exerpts regarding starting his church:

“I thought there was a whole generation of people hungry for Jesus, but unable to connect with the churches they had experienced,” he says. “I had a defining moment in 1998 on the green futon in the upstairs bedroom. It was: If nobody comes, it’s still a success. Because we tried something new.”

“There are giant down sides,” he says quietly. “I didn’t have any tools. There was no instruction manual. I went from an intern to senior pastor in a couple of years. I was 28. It was freakish growth.
