Episode 42 of How We Do Digital Ministry features Ryan Panzer, author of “The Holy and The Hybrid: Navigating the Church’s Digital Reformation.” Ryan and Charlotte Elia discuss his new book, the values of digital culture, anxieties around attendance and feasibility, and strategies for creating and sustaining a hybrid ministry in a specific context.
The digital age is perhaps best understood not through the apps and technologies that come and go, but through some of the prevailing themes and the values that you’ll find within our culture. There’s an increased desire to want to connect in many different ways, online and offline synchronously and asynchronously, to collaborate, to have experiences that are more conversational rather than consumption focused and to learn in ways that allow us to create and express the contours of our unique faith journeys rather than just to sit and listen.Ryan Panzer
