Gutenberg, Amazon, and the Evolution of the Modern Church

What do the Gutenberg press and Amazon have to do with the church?

As a result of COVID-19, churches have been forced into a digital platform as a primary means of reaching their people. The result? Most churches we know, who had a digital platform prior to COVID, have grown their average weekly attendance by four to five times.

Relevance lives at the intersection of purpose and practice. It’s the place where our why meets our how. In this next iteration of church buildings, it is my hope that we will design and plan for buildings to be as relevant as they are reverent.

This resource will discuss:

The true definition of corporate worship

The heart of corporate worship is not found primarily in a Sunday event but an engagement of people with one another within the movement of the Gospel.

How churches can separate the 'why' and the 'how'

Why is missional; how is practical. Practices can change, but the mission should not.

Making the digital platform your greatest evangelism tool

We have an unbelievable opportunity with the digital platform to meet people where they are with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We can introduce them to the Gospel in the comfort of their homes, eliminating the tension of walking into a foreign environment with new people whom they potentially already mistrust.

And much more!

"In an instant Church leaders were faced with a question—what is the Church? For decades, perhaps longer, the Church and her gathering were synonymous, and in one weekend gatherings were no more... for the moment. Faced with this new reality, Church leaders had to decide, innovation or death. Is Church a people or a place? What will the future hold? With keen insight and powerful illustrations, Nathan Artt puts before us a challenging and helpful approach to answering our initial questions, and more."
