As your place of worship reopens its physical doors, how can you build community in a post-pandemic world? How does the coronavirus affect your congregation and neighborhood? How can you BE a new church in a post-pandemic reality? In the first episode of our third season, participants learned how to:

  • Prepare spiritual collectives for new expressions of being church
  • Engineer a visioning processes
  • Realign their mission with the relevant work of God 
  • Start again with new techniques, methods, and practices
  • React, adapt, transition, engage, and transform communal care

The featured guests were Nick Warnes (Founder and Executive Director of Cyclical), Juan Sarmiento (Executive Presbyter of Presbytery of San Fernando in Panorama City, CA), and Joy Skjegstad (author of Real Connections: Ministries to Strengthen Church and Community Relationships).

A link to a recording of the webinar will be emailed to all registrants after the episode airs, regardless of attendance.

Be sure to join us afterwards on New Church Ministry’s Facebook page, where Terrell and the episode’s featured guests will be streaming a live Q&A along with Jose Martinez (Associate Minister of New Church Strategies).
