The Sermon Experience in Virtual Reality

Metaverse Church NEXT

Register Below to Watch on Demand

THIS EPISODE

Web3 technology is said to be ushering in the “age of experiences.” Gamers use this technology for incredible simulations, and communicators and educators are using virtual experiences as opportunities for learning. What does this mean for preaching? How can virtual reality solidify the educational impact of our metaverse churches?

Let’s bring VRTiger into the conversation. As lead pastor of a metaverse church plant called Oasis Church VR, VRTiger is a creative director by day, and a worldbuilder by night. Building new worlds almost weekly, VRTiger designs his sermons to become an experience, taking people into the environments taught in the Bible. Part of the sermon is a monologue where VRTiger is preaching live, flying in front of a virtual 90-inch screen. The other part of his sermon? Walking a VR world where the audience discusses and experiences different scenes like the crucifixion on the hill of Golgotha or the biblical tabernacle in Leviticus, all built in virtual reality.

So jump into this special Metaverse Church NEXT show—filmed entirely in Microsoft’s AltSpace VR—to experience these worlds through Jeff’s eyes and better understand the potential of sermons offered in virtual 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. 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.
