EP205: Andy Mage, Gamer Culture, and the Breaking the Fifth Wall Takeover



A people group unto themselves, gaming culture is taking over. From video game consoles, to computer games, mobile games, tabletop games, card games, there is an expansive community centered around gamers... and we haven't even talked about streaming or the metaverse yet!

As digital pastors and planters, we need to better understand this culture if we hope to reach it. Which is why I love this conversation right here. Two of my favorite people are jumping into this conversation. Andy Mage is taking over The Church Digital Podcast, featuring his new show Breaking the Fifth Wall. And one of his first guests on his new podcast? Lux Digital Church's Lead Pastor Mark Lutz! Mark runs a Twitch Church aimed at reaching gamers, so who better to help explain gamer culture.

So let's do this. Andy Mage taking over the The Church Digital Podcast while interviewing Mark Lutz on the new show Breaking the Fifth Wall. Learn how churches are reaching gamers today, and how your church can reach a different type of person. Looking to subscribe to the Breaking the Fifth Wall Podcast?
