  • 8. 21C Culture ShiftsAuthority and “t”ruth: from a single source of authority to an open source of discernment. eg . . . how we explore and discern Scripture, politics, culture, worship, decision making, etc. changes. SO WHAT? The church can flatten authority structures and open up decision making processes that takes seriously our belief that we best discern the Mind of Christ and the Will of God . . . together.

  • 9. 21C Culture ShiftsMobility and Commitment from a life-long commitment to “place” to an expectation of transience and change. eg . . . we change how we perceive a person’s commitment in terms of longevity. SO WHAT? The church can adapt to the rhythms of life, the changing value of longevity, how time is committed and how tasks accomplished. Photo by carbonnyc #MVPBY | @BREYESCHOW
  • 10. 21C Culture ShiftsSpirituality and Public Engagement from a silent understanding of separating church and state to an increased move to a public expression of faith and politics. eg . . . we acknowledge political realities while encouraging personal discernment. SO WHAT? The church can equip people to live their faith across all aspects of their lives: public and private. Photo by wy_jackrabbit #MVPBY | @BREYESCHOW
  • 11. 21C Culture ShiftsStructure and Adaptability: from a mindset of methodology and “steps” to a of spirit of approach and adaptability. eg . . . Changes how we structure our communal lives: congregation and councils. SO WHAT? The church can embrace structures that are flexible, responsive and life-giving.

  • 12. Example // Structures Terms of service: x years, but w/permission to leave; How F2F time is used: life-giving work, spiritual study and big-picture thinking; How responsibilities are given: projects, areas, and latitude to shift foci; How meetings are held: purposeful and creative setting; How “business” is done by using social media platforms and other time-saving technologies; Assumptions of the group: trusting, honest and permission giving; #MVPBY | @BREYESCHOW
  • 13. 21C Culture ShiftsInfluence and Social Capital: from a monolithic presence and mindset to a niche reality and opportunity for growth. eg . . . denominational evangelism strategies will change. SO WHAT? The church can manifest itself across “niche” faith communities - a multitude of expressions and experiences: theology, styles, settings, etc. Photo by glamhag #MVPBY | @BREYESCHOW
  • 14. Example // Niche ChurchWe must shift from a grandand monolithic self-understanding to one thatembraces a niche culturethen... ...develop, discover andembrace multiplemanifestations of what itmeans to be the church. #MVPBY | @BREYESCHOW
  • 15. 21C Culture ShiftsTechnology and Community: from geographic clustering and isolation to broad global community. eg . . . our understanding and experience of community, privacy and social interaction is broadened. SO WHAT? The church can embrace and integrate technology so communities and individuals may best engage with the breadth of human experience and expression. Photo by splityarn #MVPBY | @BREYESCHOW

Mobility and Commitment | From exclusion determined by longevity, to inclusion based on gifts. Structure and Adaptability | From rigid method-based organizations to flexible and adaptive structures. Spirituality and Public Engagement | From an assumed personal faith to a public expression of beliefs. Influence and Social Capital | From the monolithic assumptions to niche expressions. Technology and Community | From being geographically bound to being relationally expansive. #MVPBY | @BREYESCHOW
