The Networked Church

7 Critical Shifts for Moving Beyond Mega and Multisite


God is calling forth his Kingdom, and we are not meant just to pray his Kingdom come, but also to live toward that end.
In The Networked Church, Brian Sanders, Executive Director of the UNDERGROUND, gazes into the future of American culture and describes how the Church needs to adapt to the changes that are beginning to take place. Rather than the large consumer-focused entity many churches have developed into, we will need to shift to being agile, creation-oriented networks that unleash the potential every believer is desiring to live out.

7 Critical Shifts

SHIFT 1: From static to adaptive systems
SHIFT 2: From boastful to modest superstructures
SHIFT 3: From consumer to creator focused
SHIFT 4: From an ambiguous to a simple definition of church
SHIFT 5: From a few to all called into mission
SHIFT 6: From control to servanthood leadership
SHIFT 7: From scarcity to abundance in mission
