The idea of a Digital-Only Church was quite controversial pre-COVID. Truthfully, it's still controversial today. What we're discovering, though, is there are pioneers out there who are testing these waters... paving the way for the settlers to come in later.
Angela is one of those pioneers. In 2017, she launched a Social Media Church on Facebook... Pursuit Church Live is a digital-only church (with no physical footprint) that does ministry on Facebook. More than broadcasts and flashy content, Pursuit Church Live's goal is authentic relationships, which is quite a challenge in 2020.
Through the podcast, Angela's got stories to tell, and through Stadia we're not only excited to hear Angela's stories, but to help others follow after Angela and launch more Digital-Only expressions of church. Digital Church Planting Cohorts are coming very soon. If you're interested in planting a Digital-Only Church, let's talk.
Stadia is getting ready to launch another round of their Phygital Learning Communities. Almost 70 churches right now are learning how to THRIVE, GROW, and MULTIPLY. We want to help your church learn how physical and digital can work together to achieve your mission and vision, meanwhile letting your Church, Online, be authentically you. Phygital Learning Communities are starting soon. Check out http://stadiachurchplanting.org/phygital for more information.
