Future Expressions of the Church
About the Episode
In this episode of the Flourishing Church Podcast, Bill Couchenour and Dana Allin discuss the effects the COVID-19 has had on the church and some of the biggest challenges and blessings Bill has seen in this season of church ministry and leadership development. The two go over some of the questions that established churches can be asking about church planting, micro-expressions of the church, and the work of missional communities.
