Welcome to Season 5 of The Church Digital Podcast, as we’re talking about how to take your church’s digital and/or metaverse ministry to the next level. And do we have a great conversation for you here, right off the bat!
This idea escalated quickly. Not that long ago Ryan Sidhom, Lead Pastor at the Church Plant River City Church approached me with an idea: let’s do mission trips into the Metaverse. He even pitched his church as the guinea pig to test the model of an actual “mission trip” in the metaverse, where we take people into Virtual Reality to be on mission. We’ve built trainings around my books VR & The Metaverse Church as well as Sharing Jesus Online. Evidently, word got out.
The test idea exploded. Leadership Network is doing a learning community where we’re helping US Churches understand the missional implications of the metaverse. Similarly, GACX is doing a similar learning community with our metaverse mission trip for international mission orgs. Oh, and let’s not forget about Relevant Magazine writing about what we’re up to.
This is what we’re diving into with this podcast! We’ve got Ryan coming in and talking about the mission trip, and how Leadership Network wants to help churches like yours host a metaverse mission trip THIS YEAR! So chuck out the launch of Season 5 on The Church Digital Podcast, and for more information on Leadnet’s Learning Community and the Metaverse Mission Trip check out http://leadnet.org/mlc
