According to Pushpay’s "2023 State of Church Tech Report ," 25% of American churches are looking to plant a church in the metaverse. So, doing a learning community on planting a virtual reality church should be a no brainer!
So that's what we did. Partnering with Leadership Network, DCN is doing a learning community helping churches like yours explore virtual reality, even helping churches go on mission trips into virtual reality.
For the podcast here we’ve got Stuart McPherson, metaverse pastor from Lakeland Church, who is co-leading the learning community with Jeff. Come learn about the community we’re creating, and see how churches like yours can fit into the metaverse learning community, or the digital learning community.
Season 5 of The Church Digital Podcast is well underway. Come dive in and learn how your church can go “to the next level” in 2023. Start here!
