After all the communication that we've had recently I thought I would mention the only emergent church that I've come into contact with. Jacob's Well Church is actually here in Kansas City and serves as one of the benchmark churches in the Emergent movement. Their pastor, Tim Keel, seems like a really amazing guy. I differ somewhat with his philosophy on preaching/delivery/preparation but his commitment to Christian community and the fostering of spiritual growth is outstanding. He's on the board of Emergent Village which is an interesting group of ministry thinkers. Finally, and maybe the single coolest aspect about the church, is that Waterdeep calls Jacob's Well home.
