Cracking the Code of 21st Century Ministry 
Episode 1 — Rediscover Church

In the last decades of the 20th century, many churches moved to the suburbs. That was great. That’s where the souls were. But more and more, people are moving back into the cities. And the culture-shaping “urban mindset” — which is often post-Christian and even pre-Christian — is spreading everywhere. Everything is changing. Are you ready?

This webinar led by Steve Pike and Jason Bowman will explore the idea of moving from institution to movement. Together, they’ll interview Charlie Self, the director of learning communities at Made to Flourish, who is experienced at helping leaders integrate faith, work, and economic wisdom for their communities.

“I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.”
