THIS WEEK’S EPISODE

Jason Poling was probably the first pastor in America to pastor a physical \church as well as a church in the metaverse. As Lead Pastor of Cornerstone Church in Yuba City, Jason felt the tensions that small churches face. Through the leading of some of his elders and key volunteers, tried virtual reality, and several months later launched a church in the metaverse.

What is it like to pastor people in the metaverse? Is it different than physical? What types of people are you meeting in the metaverse? Does metaverse replace or even compete with physical church? These are the types of questions we’ll get into.

To be honest there aren’t that many lead pastors of both physical and metaverse churches. Let’s take a moment here and learn some lessons on what the metaverse church can look like.

METAVERSE CHURCH NEXT

Explore and understand the future of the metaverse church. We’ll explore 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.

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.
