Hybrid Ministry

Digital Discipleship made easy

About the show

Hybrid Ministry is complicated and hard. Or is it?
How do pastors and youth pastors create a vibrant extension, not replacement, of what's already happening during their weekly church services? To cater in a digital ministry way to an online focused ministry audience. Reaching Millennials, Gen Z and even Gen Alpha is going to require us to rethink some of the ways we do church.

    Preaching, Teaching and Youth Ministry
    Itโ€™s part of what we do in the church.

    Youโ€™ve also heard that this generation, according to crossrivertherapy.com has an attention span of just 8.25 seconds. Which is 4.25 seconds LESS than we experienced in the year 2000.

    Famously, thatโ€™s less than a goldfish

    But teaching and preaching the Bible, is not only an integral part of youth ministry, but learning the Bible is important to the discipleship and developmental process, not only in teenagers, but in anyone who claims to follow Jesus Christ as their savior.

    So how do we take the Hybrid approach to teaching and preaching.
    Hybrid is not just your physical gathering
    But not ignoring it in favor of your digital experience, either.

    Itโ€™s both.

    In this episode weโ€™ll explore the how to preach and teach to a TikTok Generation.
    What weโ€™re up against.

    What we can learn from culture

    And finally, 3 Hybrid Solutions you can implement THIS Wednesday night.
