Theological Reflections and Practical Resources for Online or In-Person Ministry
Welcome to the landing page for The Scattered Church. We’re glad you’re here.
The offices that make up the Office of Theology, Formation, and Evangelism ministry area have worked to gather resources to help congregational and new worshiping community leaders consider both theological and practical resources that provide shape and grounding for our efforts to answer the call of Christ to the Church in this moment. The resources here are designed for those who are seeking faithful and creative ways to gather as communities of witness online and in person.
