- Does the future have a church?
- Can we imagine vital spirituality in the Jesus way without churches as we’ve known them?
- What kind of churches do we need?
- How could existing churches learn from the Wild Goose?
- What’s state of the art in thinking about church futures?
We’ll explore questions like these with pastors, lay leaders, ex-church folk, parents, and others who care about churches and their role in our crazy context.
