Francis Chan is leading a movement. He is making disciples and going out and witnessing on the streets. Every week they meet up for "church" and sing and talk a bit, then they go out and witness. When they all get back, they tell stories about rejection or acceptance! They also invite poor people to "feasts". Pretty much, they are doing what the Bible commands us to do.
When did the "Jesus Movement" end? I was an original "Jesus Freak" of the 70's and as far as I can see, that movement is alive and well in any church with a dynamic youth ministry, active in many Christian rock concerts and church sponsored kids camp across the country. I'm still freaking (spreading the word) and loving Jesus like I did as a kid - maybe a bit more mature, but still active and alive.
First and foremost you need to get planted in a bible based congregation. However, it's very important to remember that following a pastor is not the same as following Jesus. Regardless how charismatic a pastor may seem, you must not put faith in the word of any man. Always verify what is preached and make sure its in-line with the gospel. Do some research about a local, bible based church. Make sure that they are following the gospel, and make sure that the congregation is lead by a board of elders that review and guide the pastor. Steps like these will help ensure that you are not just following man's word.
