My colleague, Dr. Tim Foster, has a good little article about The Rise and Fall of Hipster Churches. Its a description and critique of the phenomenon of hipster church plants. Foster concludes:
There seems to be a strong drive among hipster church planters to be the hippest pastor of the hippest church full of the hippest people. Yet within each of these aspirations is a seed that will assure the future destruction of the pastor and the church. Paul’s warning could never be more apt: “each one should build with care. For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid.” (1 Cor 3:10-11) It seems to me that being hip is not the right foundation.
