Mark Wingfield is a veteran religious journalist who is enjoying a second career in local church ministry. He serves as associate pastor of Wilshire Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, which has been cited as a model congregation for creativity, excellence and intentionality. He has written thousands of articles for national news outlets, magazines and a variety of newspapers. In Staying Alive, he combines his skills as a veteran journalist with his experience as a parish minister to make a case that reports of the death of traditional congregations are premature.
