Show Notes

Show Notes:

If you missed last week’s episode of the show, we started a chat with Jason Moore and Ros Picardo – authors of the book From Franchise to Local Dive – How to Multiply your Church.

The premise of the book is to not be a cookie cutter church – to really understand your community and create a fresh expression that can resonant with the community you’re trying to reach.

This week we’ll get into more of the how you can craft your Worship Experience for your local dive.


– How important is it to reflect the community you are serving in with the staff on your church?

– What level of freedom should the local pastors and staff have to find ways to reach their community? How can they change up the “ministry menu?”

– What are some things that could really set our Worship Experiences apart?

    • Acts of Service
    • Tactile Experiences
    • Environmental Projection
    • Interactive Worship
    • Breaking the Template

– What are some things we can do to reimagine worship and create something new?

– Though there are multiple considerations in creating great Experiences for our community, what are some key ingredients required for making a recipe that people will come back for?

    • Worship
    • Guest Readiness
    • Community Building
    • Discipleship
    • Mission

– How important is Media Integration in my Worship Experiences?

– How important is Guest Readiness or First Impressions to our Worship Experience?

– What are ways we can break down our Insider Focus or Insider Language and better appeal to visitors?

– In the days of PRE-COVID, why was Forced Interaction more damaging than helpful?

– What are some other things you’ve found that are more of a distraction to first time guests than a help?
