About this event

This event is brought to you by the TryTank Experimental Lab in the department of Lifelong Learning at Virginia Theological Seminary

What is the church of the future? Will church—as we know it—even exist? Author and noted futurist Bob Johansen, a distinguished fellow with the Institute for the Future, will join a small audience from around the church to look at current trends, future trends, possible disruptions, and why a new way of thinking is required for leaders of the church. Rather than a fearful future, we should embrace it as an opportunity for new spectrums of meaning-making. It will be a fascinating, yet practical, conversation.

Register now for this three part conversation where each conversation is released to you according to the following schedule:

  • 10/8/21 - Part 1
  • 1/14/22 - Part 2
  • 5/13/22 - Part 3
