The Multi-Dimensional Church: Your Church in 15 Years
The landscape of Church in America is changing. In 15 years your church will inhabit a different environment and will operate very differently. The way things were in the past is not the way things will be in the future. The relationship of the Church/State is evolving and churches should begin to adapt to it sooner than later. The relationship of younger generations to their local church is changing, with different values, financial habits, and interactions with their local church. To serve and love the community around, each church should consider these four aspects of this changing landscape; the Church must become: Multi-Lingual, Multi-Platform, Multi-Purpose, and have Multi-Revenue.
- To learn about the various changes happening in the culture around the Church and how to respond
- To see some actual examples of churches who are adapting already
- To be inspired to step into a new era of church leadership in 15 years
- To have viable pathways for adapting to serve communities in new ways
