Church in Virtual Reality with DJ Soto

Show Notes

Show Notes:

This week is going to look a little different.

We want to give you a big introduction into the MetaVerse and our thoughts on where this is going for the church.

For this episode, we interviewed DJ Soto who is the pastor of VR Church – a 100% Virtual Church experience in the MetaVerse.

We have attended VR Church with DJ and what we found, which we talk to DJ about is it is not just your avatar watching a screen within the environment, but the Metaverse is its own environment.

At DJ’s church, they are creating worlds that you walk around in and the see the Bible come to life. The graphics are a little video gamish, but the concept is getting there quickly.

Ministry is taking place.

This is not something to write off as silly or too out there.

This is really happening.

Church in Virtual Reality.

You’re going to learn a whole lot more from our conversation with DJ.
