EP246 - Leonard Sweet talks Digital Church



Almost 25 years ago, as a college student, I read Leonard Sweet’s book SoulTsunami, and to say that it changed my life would be an understatement. In 1999, Leonard’s book gave me permission to digital ministry even though everyone else thought I was crazy. 20+ years later, people still think I’m crazy, but that doesn’t mean I’m wrong. 


Let’s get Leonard Sweet on a podcast, and talk with the Church Futurist about the future of the tmchurch. We’ll hit digital and metaverse church. We’ll talks politics and theology. We’ll talk content with the author of 70+ books. To be honest we cover a lot of topics, all the while having some fun too. 

So jump on the podcast with myself, and Leonard Sweet, talking digital church.
