The Holy and the Hybrid:
Navigating the Church’s Digital Reformation
It was only a few years ago that digital ministry seemed like an uncertain reality. Now we know enough to realize it’s here to stay. How do we blend the very best of online and offline in a way that builds connection to God, self, and others? It’s time to find out.
Ryan Panzer’s latest book, The Hybrid and the Holy, won’t be available to purchase until later in the year. This advance chapter is an exclusive preview. Here’s what you’ll learn:
- A better understanding of how faith-based involvement forms us and influences civic engagement
- The link between connection and service
- Why churches need a digital community
- How to recognize the church we were in order to become who we’re called to be
- …and so much more!
But that doesn’t mean it’s easy or that it will always feel comfortable. As church people, we’re not unfamiliar with wanting things to stay the same. We have an idea of what works, and we may even enjoy the sense of security that comes from “the way it’s always been done.”
But it’s impossible to grow and stay the same. Refusing the change is a recipe for becoming stagnant, and none of us want that. The digital reformation is already happening. It’s in the air all around us, and it’s time for us to take a deep breath.
