No, not the former NFL player. This Reggie McNeal is the author of the Get off Your Donkey, and most recently Kingdom Collaborators. I had the opportunity to speak with Reggie via a Skype call, and recorded it for the podcast. You can listen to it here.
Reggie has a perspective on US American congregational life that spans the range of mainline as well as evangelical christianity. He used to work with leadership Network, as well as serving as a denominational executive in the Southern Baptist church. But, now he is working on a new project helping cities discover ways they can improve the quality of their communities. Check out what he has to say about being a 21st Century church.
