BETA16: Differences Between Physical & Digital (Clubhouse Edition)


We call it The BETA Show. Of course we're going to experiment... Here with THECHURCH.DIGITAL we have been testing the waters with this new Clubhouse platform, and unlike most social media, this seems to be a great opportunity to physically dialogue, to actually talk, with people. So, we're moving The BETA Show over to Clubhouse occasionally to see how the engagement is over on Clubhouse. Why Clubhouse? Jeff did a recent livestream over on Facebook about the potential of Clubhouse. Not on the platform? Hit us up and we'll try to send over an invite! Android users, and people who can't make the conversation in real time... the majority of conversations will be recorded and made available via The Church Digital Podcast feed, so make sure you're subscribed to that. We'll also have show notes here on The Church Digital Blog.

As we’re coming out of the COVID season and approaching the next normal, what is the role of digital? As we’re going back to our buildings, with hopes that eventually our people will return to the physical space, are there digital lessons that we should be bringing along?

What many churches have yet to realize is that digital ministry is different than physical ministry. Many churches are just doing digitally what they do physically… these are oftentimes the churches that are reporting burnout among staff and zoom fatigue among attenders.

So let’s pause here, and reflect… what is the difference between physical and digital? With a solid panel of pastors and ministry leaders recorded on Clubhouse, this is a great conversation with applications for your specific church!
