EP275 - Jay Kranda & Getting Your Church to Experiment



Saddleback has always had an experimental culture. Seeing Saddleback adopt a digital strategy literally a decade+ ago, and then move into decentralized and micro church strategies…Saddleback has learned that failure is not the end of the experiment. Failure is just one step closer to finding success.

But, how do you get your church to experiment? With services coming every Sunday, even with the push for “excellence” every week…how do we do something different? These are the questions we’re bringing to Jay Kranda, Online Community Pastor at Saddleback.

By the way, these are the issues that we’re dealing with in our Leadership Network’s Digital and Metaverse Learning Communities. Through these Learning Communities, we’re helping churches explore how to take next steps in their digital and metaverse ministry…and experimenting plays a huge part! So check out the Digital Learning Community and Metaverse Learning Community and find out how your church can join Leadership Network in what’s next.

So jump on this podcast with Jeff Reed and Jay Kranda as we are exploring how your church can experiment! Find out, right here, on The Church Digital Podcast.
