Should Your Church Decentralize?: Podcast 324

One of the lessons this season has taught us is: there are things that are just out of our control. 

The same is true to our churches – we were forced to let go of the box of control, and adapt so we can bring the message of hope in Jesus in the midst of uncertainties. 

Are we now operating on a decentralized model? Or maybe a better question is: should your church decentralize? 

Our hosts Nils Smith and Aaron Magnuson share an insightful conversation about this topic and more! Join them in this podcast episode.
