What Works Better: A Physical Church Office or a Virtual One?

minute read

As the church wrestles with being the Ekklesia in our ever-converged digital/physical world, the environment of the church office is affected as well. I have heard of some churches that do not have a physical office at all while others require staff to maintain a constant, physical presence in the office.

I want to share with you this great podcast by Don Miller of The Storybrand Podcast. He interviews two guests with two contrasting points of view.

While this podcast is targeted more at the business world, we are all living in this same converged digital/physical culture, so I believe this is well worth listening to as a church leader.


What are your thoughts? Should the church adopt a culture of staff working from virtual offices, stick with physical only, or a hybrid approach? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
