EP233: Patrick O’Connell, Missional Imagination & The Digital Church

0

 

DOING SOMETHING DIFFERENT WILL HELP US REACH DIFFERENT PEOPLE.

Fortunately, God has equipped us with imagination, allowing us an opportunity to come up with different, creative ideas to connect with people. And, as a result of COVID, there is probably no better time in human history for imaginative ideas than right now.

THIS IS THE HEART BEHIND MISSIONAL IMAGINATION.

How can these ideas be used for kingdom purposes? How can we network or collaborate with others to make this Missional Imagination a reality? Let’s dig into this Missional Imagination conversation with Patrick O’Connell, Global Director of NewThing Network. NewThing specializes in collaboration, and the idea of unique expressions of church (physically and digitally) is right up their alley. The idea of Missional Imagination is the front door to NewThing’s Movement System, which is crucial to NewThing’s (and DCN’s) desire to start organic disciple-making movements!

SO WHAT'S YOUR IDEA?

What can God do with your Missional Imagination? Dive into this podcast with Patrick O'Connell and discover what God may have in store for you… here on The Church Digital Podcast.

ABOUT PATRICK O'CONNELL

Patrick O’Connell is the Director of NewThing. After graduating college and a stint in the Army, he went to work in the corporate world, eventually becoming a Vice President in a prestigious investment firm. It was during this time that he connected with COMMUNITY and eventually found his way back to God. In 2007, he left his business and moved with a team of people to Kansas City to help start Restore Community Church. Soon after, he began coaching and mentoring church planters. He's become a student of church planting, enrolling in the Master of Missional Church Movements Program at Wheaton College. He wants to leverage his knowledge, experiences and passion for Jesus to help people start more churches that help even more people find their way back to God. He's married to Nancy and they have three great kids: Bailie (19), Declan (14) and Cormac (10). Patrick blogs at Missionglue.com.
