The Church Digital Podcast

By Jeff Reed

Church Online is relatively new, and while many churches are broadcasting services online, few are developing a digital strategy using Church Online. What if your church looked at Church Online as a digital mission field? What if church online was used to create biblical community? For church planting? For launching multisite campuses? Can discipleship happen online? What if we used Church Online to make disciples, empowering them with Gospel to reach their family and friends? All of a sudden, Church Online isn't an afterthought. It's vital. This, and more, through The Church Digital Podcast.

EP245: Your Digital Church’s Local Missions Department
EP245: Your Digital Church’s Local Missions Department
Faith without works is dead! How many times have you heard that challenge towards the idea of digital churches and digital ministry? James 2 isn’t wrong, of course. But it doesn’t have to apply to Digital Churches. “Jeff, how do you serve people digitally?” Well, have we got an opportunity for you. Realizing that digital is not the abandonment of gathering, but instead the opportunity to birth new gatherings… what if we applied that same philosophy to serving? What if we could equip our people to serve in their physical community, regardless of where they are located? What if digital church could impact single moms, sex trafficking, foster care and battle hunger in communities across the planet!? Enter Panos and Robert from One More Child, an organization who is decentralizing training that is set up to help churches like yours move our digital consumers to a place of serving in their community. Let’s start to explore the idea of using our digital church or digital ministry to create missional connections and service opportunities globally using digital. Dive into this podcast with Jeff and One More Child, and let’s start serving the community via digital!

EP243: Surviving the Creative Christmas Church Service
Tis the season to get stressed out, amiright? So many departments coming together. So many volunteers serving with all their heart. The standards are set high for this year’s Christmas Services (happening on a Sunday this year BTW.) But how do you manage the creative tensions? How do you get people to work together. What does it look like to get people to focus towards an aligned direction, often meaning they would need to set aside their own desires? This is how it often feels working at a Church in Christmas (or Easter for that matter.) But it doesn’t have to be. To this end we’re bringing in Ben Stapley to the conversation. His 17th Christmas working for the church, Ben has navigated this tension for a while, and knows how to not only manage the tension but thrive in it. So jump in the podcast, and learn not just how to survive Christmas, but how to create a healthy culture that will help you survive all 52 weeks in the year!

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

A self-proclaimed “Pastor at the Bar”, I wasn’t surprised in a recent conversation when Joey said, “Jeff, what would it look like to open a Bar in Virtual Reality and be the church in that space?” I wasn’t surprised but, I’ll admit, I got really excited. Church in a VR Bar is a bit away from reality, but I wanted you to hear the heart behind the idea of a VR Bar. Catch a vision for the VR Bar, and maybe find out the role you (and your church) can play… AND, THIS IS ONLY THE BEGINNING And, knowing us, this is only the beginning as we explore creating more shared experiences in virtual reality… only here on The Church Digital Podcast.

I believe in the power of one – one life committed to Jesus can make an enormous impact when connected to another life committed to Jesus. When those lives become connected with other lives by passion and vision, the power to impact our world with the love and message of Jesus grows exponentially. It all starts with one. Perhaps you are that one – I believe you can reach your full potential in Jesus."
