Could Everyone in Your Church Become a Digital Missionary?
What if your Physical-, Digital-, or Metaverse- Church used Digital as the training ground to release Digital Missionaries? What if we utilized the strength of digital to train, activate and release people to reach their circle of influence physically, digitally, or even in the Metaverse? Maybe, just maybe, digital can provide the spiritual purpose that many churches are missing beyond the content-driven Sunday mornings, and help us move from a knowledge-based Discipleship format to an obedience-based Discipleship framework.
As aggressive as everyone in your church becoming a digital missionary is, maybe we're not that far off. Enter Jon Ferguson into the conversation. Jon, and his brother Dave Ferguson, developed a framework called BLESS to help empower and activate people in physical space. What if that framework works digitally?
Jon Ferguson & Jeff Reed Talk BLESS, Figuring Out How to Apply The Framework to Digital- and Metaverse- Spaces.
So let's learn more about Dave & Jon's BLESS Practices. Let's hypothesize more about how to make BLESS the foundational piece of Digital Missionaries, and maybe (just maybe) we'll help some churches find some opportunities along the way.
