Much to learn from USA Today (and Urban D)

I met Urban D (a/k/a Pastor Tommy Kylonnen) last week at the National Network of Youth Ministry's UrbNet Summit. Cool cat. He's a hip hop artist and senior pastor based in Tampa. USA Today recently profiled his ministry:

"Crossover does 21st-century church in first-century fashion, going into the world like the Apostle Paul in Athens, telling of salvation in the language of the streets. He meets people where they are and speaks them, sings them, dances them to God, even if it takes a break-dancer gyrating with the chorus."
Maybe USA Today is onto something.
