LNP1 | Metaverse 101: Discovering the Next Great Mission Field

Leadership Network Podcast | Episode 1

August 2, 2022


Welcome to the Leadership Network Podcast. This podcast offers weekly, focused sessions on what is NEXT for the church and its leaders. As leaders, we can get “zoomed in” on our day-to-day, when we often need to “zoom-out” and have vision for the big picture. Leadership Network Podcast helps us look past the now to see what is NEXT.

Leadership Network Podcast | Episode 1

Guest: Michael Uzdavines – Metaverse Pastor | Cornerstone Yuba City/VR
Host: Jeff Reed – Metaverse Church NEXT Director

To kick off the first episode of the Leadership Network Podcast, we begin a series on Metaverse Church NEXT. We’re bringing in Michael Uzdavines, probably the only person in America with the job title “Metaverse Pastor.” Michael is a pastor at Cornerstone Church Yuba City, a smallish church in Northern California that has developed a huge passion for the metaverse, even launching a complete church campus in VR. Learn Cornerstone’s story, and what it’s like to pastor, shepherd, and disciple people in the metaverse.

Metaverse Church NEXT

Explore and understand the future of the metaverse church. We’ll examine aspects of the Meta mission field, the Church in the Metaverse, even what discipleship and multiplication can look like in the Metaverse. Through the interviews hosted on the Metaverse Church NEXT we’ll address the technical, theological, and tactical approaches that churches are wrestling with today in virtual reality, augmented reality, and even innovation in general.
