Planting Digital Churches in Response to COVID-19

Season 2, Ep. 50254

Are you responding to the pandemic or merely reacting? If you are reacting you may be struggling, or you may be rejoicing that lots of people are watching Facebook Live. Meanwhile, disciplemakers are responding by multiplying disciples, leaders and even planting churches digitally.

This is a story of one congregation with a huge goal -- to plant clusters of churches in every inner city in the U.S. Their response to the pandemic has been the launch of online congregations in eight cities, so far. They're shooting for 40 by year's end. You'll learn much from this podcast about the post-pandemic opportunities that came to us allong with the tragedy.
