The Phygital Mindset: 
Episode 5: Church Multiplication & The Metaverse

You all know what that physical church looks like in your local neighborhoods, but there has been a disruption in the church space and now digital-only churches are here. These churches, with no physical footprint, have been planted in digital communities like virtual reality, social media, and video games! With a rich (yet imaginative) ecclesiology, these churches have done a great job innovating for the kingdom, and ultimately reaching a different person than our physical buildings have reached.

In early 2019 Jason Poling had no knowledge, nor ever experienced, anything in the metaverse. Less than a year later his PNW Church Yuba City, supported by several volunteers, started a Campus in Virtual Reality that’s reaching and discipling people across the country. Learn how, by releasing control, Jason was able to multiply his church in the metaverse, and start to reach a different type of person that his buildings could not reach.

Featured Guests

Jason Poling
Jason serves as lead pastor for Cornerstone Church in Yuba City, California. He planted its first virtual reality church campus in 2020, making it the first church to exist as a hybrid congregation, existing in both IRL (in real life) and VR. In 2021, he led Cornerstone to plant two more campuses. Jason also helped Cornerstone establish the first biblical counseling center in the metaverse and initiate the “Yuba City on a Hill” vision to launch a biblical counseling center, kids activity hub, and city market in their community to serve the rapidly increasing unchurched population. Jason received his Master of Divinity at Southern Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. He and his wife, Gwen, have three children. Jason loves helping other pastors inspire their congregations to reach all worlds—including the metaverse—for Christ!

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.
