Re: “The Vintage church in Raleigh attracts young college students, but does its anti-women stance collide with its public image?

I don't know of many of the church's in Apex. I am friends with Rev. Colin Snider at First UMC Cary and I believe they are starting a new service that may be more alternative than their standard service. It will be UMC, which tends to be more progressive than the Southern Baptist church. He is a good man. His wife is a UMC Pastor as well, but she is in Johnston County. If you are looking for a church in those areas, I would check them out.

I am a pastor in Durham, and Durham has several alternative services. City Well is a church that meets in the Reality Center. They are different than most UMC church's Cleve May is their Pastor. http://www.citywell.org/ Emmaus Way also meets in the Reality Center and they are definitely an alternative church. They are led by Tim Condor and Dan Rhodes. http://www.emmausway.net/ The Tobacco trail Church is an alternative church that meets on the Tobacco trail or in people's homes. George Linney is the lead pastor of this church. http://www.tobaccotrailchurch.com/ Triangle Refuge is an alternative house church led by Megan Pardue. http://www.refugehomechurch.org/

My Church is called Durham Resurrection Community. Amy Laura Hall asked me to start it when I graduated from Duke Div in 2011. I'm Ryan and I have a co-pastor Bryan Poole. We like to think of ourselves as alternative while being faithful to the tradition. http://durhamres.com

The triangle has plenty of incredible churches. All of these churches are seeking to loving places where faith is vibrant. Hopefully people won't feel limited to Acts 29 churches alone.

Re: “Seeing Durham through the bottom of a glass

I'm going to have to agree with Fritx, not putting Tyler's in there is a big mistake. Tyler's came in well before most of those places and helped pioneer craft beer in the triangle. They were downtown before it was cool.
