PODCAST 088: Matt Lombardi - What Do You Mean Your Church Won’t Experiment?



Thank you very much, COVID. That long-term vision? That playbook? Your church’s strategy? It’s all trash. Every church is in startup mode, and we’re reimagining the idea of church moving forward. Reimagining is going to require some experimentation.

Is your church capable of experimenting? Do they have the vision? The resources? The ability to experiment. Often churches staff for the needs of today, not to experiment for tomorrow. Even in the midst of COVID, with the economical issues many churches are facing, the idea of hiring, restructuring, or restaffing is challenging to most.

Enter Matt Lombardi from, an organization that connects creatives, designers, and video editors to churches. Church, looking to experiment in an area? Matt explores how churches can experiment utilizing freelancing resources to discover what tomorrow’s ministry can look like today.
