Build it and they will come

I just moved to Miami 6 months ago. I don't know why specifically, other than that I had the opportunity, wanted to be more immersed in Latino culture, and felt like it was God's will. In that short amount of time, I've met at least 5-6 others that have felt drawn here in a similar, "Field of Dreams" type of way, being called out of the cornfield as it were.

They sensed, as I do, that God is doing a new thing here in Miami, even though they can't quite put their finger on it. If I had to guess, I would say that maybe God is awakening people here/drawing others here to help fill a spiritual vacuum with the multi-ethnic youth culture in Miami. I haven't found much here so far in the way of any postmodern or emerging generation churches filling the void in Miami. Not to say I haven't found some healthy churches here; just not ones that seem like they are on the verge of a revolution.

Anyone out there in the blogosphere that's experienced anything in this regard about Miami? Or know of a church that is geared towards youth and postmodern culture? Let me know.
