Thoughts from a recovering worship leader

Christian hipster

March 8th, 2012 | Posted by jamie in Funnies

Christian hipster seems to be the way of the worship world these days. All the talk about faux hawks and scarves during the summer left me wondering; am I a Christian hipster?

Lucky for me, I found this handy quiz to find out.

Here was my score:

Your Christian Hipster Quotient:

66 / 120

Low CHQ. You probably belong to the purpose-driven, seeker-sensitive, Hawaiian shirt-wearing Christian establishment, even though you are open to some of the “rethinking Christianity” stuff. You seem to like edginess in some measure but become uneasy when your idea of Christian orthodoxy is challenged by some renegade young visionary who claims the virgin birth isn’t necessary.


I scored about what I expected… a wanna be hipster. Oh well. I guess I’ll go back to reading A Purpose Driven Life now. *sigh*

    I score 51/120. Now I feel part of the establishment. Thought provoking and funny questions. :)

      We’re both so unhip… :)

  • SethCaddell

    i wish I was more hipster… but alas, I can’t rock the fauxhawk… :(

      Let’s unite in our unhipness. Maybe we can start a new movement…

    Wow, I’m a 40. I feel old. Really, really old! Haha. I didn’t know ANY of the answers on quite a few of the maybe i picked wrong huh. Haha

    • Jamie Kocur

      I know, I feel old too. I recognized some of the hipster things in the answers but knew I couldn’t answer them honestly.

  • Jim Woods

    The quiz needed to ask what kind of pants you wear to church…and have you ever worn a Rolling Stones shirt to church. That would have made me MUCH hipper. Haha

    • Jamie Kocur

      As long as you’re not wearing skinny jeans. That’s the one hipster thing I CANNOT get behind.

    Probably would have been less could I have skipped some questions. There were some where I didn’t disagree with any and ended up just randomly picking the least offensive one. Haha. :)

    • Jamie Kocur

      I did that on a few too…

  • Kira

    *didn’t agree with any
