Social Media Church The Conference

Apr 22, 2021

Mental health, generosity, and racism are such important topics for our churches to be covering. Many people we lead are waiting for us to start engaging in these difficult subjects.

 

Chances are, many churches aren’t talking  about these subjects, not because they don’t want to, but because they don’t know how to.

Join our hosts, Aaron Magnuson and Nils Smith in this podcast episode as they break this conversation into chunks with Social Media Church’s Founder DJ Chuang.

One of the lessons this season has taught us is: there are things that are just out of our control. 

The same is true to our churches – we were forced to let go of the box of control, and adapt so we can bring the message of hope in Jesus in the midst of uncertainties. 

Are we now operating on a decentralized model? Or maybe a better question is: should your church decentralize? 

Our hosts Nils Smith and Aaron Magnuson share an insightful conversation about this topic and more! Join them in this podcast episode.
