EP218: Dave Ferguson, Digital Missionaries, and the Power of Shared Experiences


Can We Really Be Digital Missionaries?

This is the heart of the conversation with Dave Ferguson today. Dave, and his brother Jon, recently released a book B.L.E.S.S. which details how people can be a missionary in physical space… “Begin with Prayer, Listen, Eat a Meal Together, Serve, Share Jesus”… Recently the question was asked: Can we do the BLESS practices digitally? Can BLESS become the framework for a Digital Missionary.

So, we invited in a bunch of digital pastors and digital planters and asked them the question: As you’re looking at BLESS, how would we do this digitally? Some things make perfect sense on how this could apply as a digital missionary. Other parts, well, needed adapting. How do we adapt it? I think we made solid headway…

Dave Ferguson’s BLESS is All About Intimate Relationships that Point to Jesus. How Do We Do that Digitally?

The biggest issue we found? How do you eat together digitally? in the metaverse? What do we do there? Dave’s solution is fascinating.

So, let’s jump into the conversation with Dave Ferguson as well as Pastors and Planters from Digital Church Network, as we join the conversation centered around creating a Digital Missionary Culture.
