Episode 90 - The Church After Innovation: Questioning Our Obsession With Work, Creativity, and Entrepreneurship (feat. Andrew Root)

It is not uncommon to have the pressure to innovate the church to engage the world, but do these feelings help or hurt? Can our relationship with work, creativity, and entrepreneurial spirit become obsessive and distract us from what God is doing? Are we trapped in a capitalist framework and not even know it?

In this second part of our recent conversation with Dr. Andrew Root, we discuss these drives and how they are shaping our churches and models of ministry.

Episode 89 - Churches and the Crisis of Decline (feat. Andrew Root)

As we observe decline in denominations and local churches, how do we make sense of this trajectory? What are our fears revealing about our understanding of the crisis and shaping our responses? Dr. Andrew Root joins us for the conversation to unpack these questions and provides a helpful perspective to diagnose, process, and navigate through this phenomenon.

Episode 88 - The Megachurch: Metrics, Management, and Mission

How do we make sense of the megachurch phenomenon in Canada, especially among Asian churches? In what ways can their organization and structures engage and empower people to live on God's mission? Can their size be a detriment? We tackle these questions and more as we unpack the metrics, examine potential dangers, and hopefully consider how megachurches can move forward. Let's do this!
