Why the Metaverse? Does virtual reality need church planters?

This event is in the past.

Join us to learn more about emerging ministry opportunities in the Metaverse. Learn more about what the Metaverse is and what the Bible has to say about embodiment. Hear from practitioners about the needs of people using the Metaverse, and find out what church planters are already doing to love and serve people in this space. You will come away with a clear vision of why the  Metaverse is worth considering for future ministry.

We will also share the results of the "The State of Church Planting Survey", including the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset winner!
