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.

"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."
