Jason Poling and the Challenge of Reality

Metaverse Church NEXT

On Demand Replay Available Soon

THIS EPISODE

There’s only one reality, right? Like the physical reality we are in? Technology has certainly complicated this question. Between physical, metaverse, social media, and quantum physics, there’s a challenge for some to acknowledge the reality of these realities. Is it time to develop a theology around reality itself?

Jason Poling thinks so. As lead pastor of Cornerstone Yuba City and Cornerstone VR, Jason is one of the few people who are actively doing church ministry in physical space as well as in the metaverse, so he has been wrestling with the theology of reality for a while now.

Does the theology of reality sound like a radical concept? Are you passionate about theology? Tune in to Metaverse Church NEXT as we start to establish how a church can theologically operate in the metaverse reality.

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. ET.

Host

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.
