Featuring Dr. Michael Beck of Fresh Expressions
In this 6-part on-demand course, pastor, teacher, and author Michael Adam Beck offers churches a model for thriving in the midst of overwhelming cultural change. Despite stories of loss and decline, many congregations are countering the negative trends and finding a way forward.
Beck’s blended ecology approach honors the steadfast saints who fill many of our pews today, while at the same time offering a new vision for “church” found more relevant by those we hope to reach in our surrounding communities.
Beck is director of the Fresh Expressions House of Studies at United Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Jill, are co-pastors of two small traditional congregations that are also part of a network of 13 fresh expressions that gather in tattoo parlors, dog parks, salons, running tracks, community centers, burrito joints and digital spaces.
