Part 2 Jason Shepperd Interview: Adapting to COVID-19
Season 2, Ep. 50253
This is the second interview with Jason. The first (Episode #50252) was recorded several months earlier.While the first deals with the theology and practice of a microchurch network. This episode pinpoints the ease with which a network of house church is adapting to, and growing during the pandemic.
Interview: Jason Sheppherd and ChurchProject.org
Season 2, Ep. 50252
Jason grew frustrated after working for several large churches that seemed to miss the beauty and simplicity of church as we see it in the New Testament. The result was a house church, then a cluster of them and then thousands of people meeting on Sundays as a collective of house churches. The further result is Church Projects across Texas, Colorado, California and in Africa.Jason is a self-confessed church reductionist. His team minister to thousands each week. House church pastors actually pastor people. The yoke is light, the burden is easy (at least easier than many of us know). If you're burdened under the weight of the church you lead. Or, if you've been forced to re-think church due to how you handled COVID-19, you'll love Jason and his world. Links mentioned in this episode are churchproject.org and churchprojectnetwork.com
