THIS EPISODE

What does evangelism look like in the metaverse? Those in the know talk about the opportunities in this massive metaverse mission field to relationally connect with people and share Jesus with others in virtual reality.

Is the metaverse culture receptive to conversations on faith? This is really the heart of the issue. With the cultural shift toward decentralization that’s partly a result of the metaverse, there is an increased value in individuals sharing about Jesus (both in physical space and in the metaverse mission field).

Enter William Willenbrock into the conversation. Known in the metaverse as Pastor Brock, Bill has a nine-to-five job as a hospital chaplain. Not a very “metavers-y” job, but in the evenings Pastor Brock runs a ministry where he has personally shared Jesus in the metaverse with over 2,000 people. No virtual stage, no podium. Straight up conversations with people in the metaverse.

How do people receive the gospel in the metaverse? In 2022, is an organic approach to the metaverse mission field effective? Let’s dig in with metaverse missionary Pastor Brock.

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.

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.
