How are innovative churches trying to engage and impact their communities outside the walls of the church building? Does innovation look differently in communities with diverse cultures and races?
Innovative churches are impacting their communities outside of the walls of their church buildings by being intentional about how to connect their message with their audience. Innovation does not always equal high tech! Concerts in the park, street clean-ups, partnerships with the mayor’s office, school assemblies, coffee shops and the hundreds of other ways churches are connecting with their communities can be very innovative! Innovation always looks different because communities are different. Latin American culture is big on family holidays. Urban (city) churches are big on community impact. Suburban churches have the challenge of fostering relationships because three-car garages separate them during the week.
