Episode 187: The Perceived Threat of a Digital Church



Why is a digital church perceived to be so threatening to a physical church? Rather than see a digital church as complementary to what’s happening physically, a digital church is seen in competition, as if the Gospel means less digitally than physically. Reality is we see today that these digital churches are reaching a different type of person than physical churches are reaching. These digital churches are not in competition, they are completing our call in making disciples… just using different methods.

Which gets us into this podcast episode. We’re bringing in Dr. John Harris, Lead Pastor of a Digital Church called Hearts Like His, hitting a plethora of digital church topics. Don’t sleep on the “race & the digital church” question, either. Interested or thinking about planting a digital church? You’re going to love this conversation.
