THIS EPISODE

In this episode of Metaverse Church NEXT, we’re digging deeper: let’s talk artificial intelligence and the Church!

We’ve all seen the movie: SkyNet has taken over the world, and Arnold Schwarzenegger battles the robots in post-apocalyptic America. Actually, Neo battling the Matrix is probably a more recent example. For decades, we have lived in fear of these machines, essentially of artificial intelligence. Now that AI is upon us, birthed in the mythical metaverse, should we live in fear?

Meet Christopher Benek. Besides being  the lead pastor at First Miami Presbyterian Church (the oldest organized church in Miami, Florida), Christopher is one of the top experts in the country on AI and the Church. So let’s and ask him the hard questions! What is the theology surrounding artificial intelligence? What role does AI play in today’s church? in the church of the future? How can we use artificial intelligence for Kingdom purposes? Where is the ethical line where we should not cross? This only scratches the surface when it comes to the opportunities and threats of artificial intelligence for the Church.

ABOUT THIS SERIES

Explore and understand the future of the metaverse church. We’ll examine aspects of the meta mission field, the Church in the metaverse, even what discipleship and multiplication can look like in the metaverse. Through the interviews hosted on Metaverse Church NEXT we’ll address the technical, theological, and tactical approaches that churches are wrestling with today in virtual reality, augmented reality, and even innovation in general. Metaverse Church NEXT broadcasts Wednesday, 12:30 p.m. Eastern.

Jeff Reed
In June 2000, Jeff led his first online Bible study, taking 75 people from around the world through the book of James using a text-based system called Ultimate BB. He was doing digital ministry way before it was cool. Founding THECHURCH.DIGITAL in 2018, Jeff’s passions have evolved into helping churches (and individuals too!) find their calling through digital discipleship, releasing people on digital mission, and planting multiplying digital churches. This pursuit will expand as Jeff (and others) create the DigitalChurch.Network, an organic, decentralized network for digital expressions of church, globally. Jeff also serves as the Director of Metaverse Church NEXT for Leadership Network, and works closely with Exponential and other globally facing, multiplication-friendly, gospel-centric organizations. Jeff married his high school sweetheart, Amy, and has two kids and a dog. They live in Miami, Florida.
