Register Below to Watch on Demand

THIS WEEK’S EPISODE

To kick off the first episode of the Metaverse Church NEXT, we’re bringing in Michael Uzdavines, probably the only person in America with the job title “Metaverse Pastor.” Michael is a pastor at Cornerstone Church Yuba City, a smallish church in Northern California that has developed a huge passion for the metaverse, even launching a complete church campus in VR. Learn Cornerstone’s story, and what it’s like to pastor, shepherd, and disciple people in the metaverse.

METAVERSE CHURCH NEXT

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 the 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. The Metaverse Church broadcasts Wednesday, 12:30 p.m. Eastern.

Michael Uzdavines
Pastor Michael Uzdavines was born in New Jersey and moved to Florida with his family at the age of 13. As a young boy, Michael enjoyed computer programming, playing video games, playing baseball and hockey, and eventually played college baseball. Michael went to law school at the University of Florida and met his wife, Marilyn, there. They have been married for 17 years and have four children: Franco, Angelina, Valentina, and Liliana. After 10 years of practicing law, Michael felt a calling on his life to be in full-time ministry. Michael earned his Masters in Divinity from Liberty University and later his M.B.A. from University of Florida. For the last ten years, in his free time, Michael has been developing games and programs to help spread the gospel of Jesus. His passion is reaching out to the lost and unchurched through video games and in the digital space. Michael and his family have lived in South Florida for the last nine years where they enjoy going on family bike rides, day trips to the beach, playing tennis, and playing games together.

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.
