We passed a resolution at our 2014 Assembly, asking every congregation to set aside 20 percent of its time and resources to experiment. Why? Because the world has changed, and the church must be ready to change with it. So we must try new things, we must be willing to fail boldly and learn.
Below, Bishop James Hazelwood (with a little help from his friends) talks about the importance of experimentation. Are you trying something new? Is it exciting? Is it terrifying?
Check out the Bishop's video. And then, check out our new Facebook group dedicated to the sharing of new ideas for ministry and innovation.
