Congregation Resources on Ryan Bolger's presentation
We'd love for you to share THIS video with your congregational leadership. Yep, the senior pastor, but even better the entire church council.
We just read a pastor's thread today that talked about worship attendance in congregations being flat or down, while giving and the work of ministries are up. Participatory culture.
Use some of these questions to open the discussion after viewing the video:
- What evidence do you see of the cultural shifts that Ryan Bolger is talking about in our community?
- Where is our church seeing changes in people's involvement?
- Are our people accounting for those changes as cultural shifts?
- List the examples that Bolger gives of participatory church.
- Can our church become more participatory? How?
- Bolger also shares some significant ways of reaching out into the community. Identify one that your church could pursue in your community.
