In a world of rapid cultural and technological change, how do we faithfully worship and share the good news of Jesus Christ? The global pandemic forced and inspired thousands of congregations to move their worship services online to reach people—members and non-members—at home, many of them for the first time.

Now there is incredible momentum, and we cannot go backwards. Instead, we must dream about what the next iteration of worship and online ministry looks like in a post-pandemic world. This important, field-tested new work by worship technology expert Jason Moore helps us understand how to harness innovative changes in technology and culture to help our people faithfully experience and share Jesus with others in the spirit of the Great Commission.

Both/And offers practical strategies, real-world stories and useful tactics that churches of any size can use. Context matters. So not everything in this resource will fit your church. But you’ll find something that will help you better communicate the gospel to people who need it and when and where they can access it.

The goal is to offer worship where no one feels like an afterthought—not at home, nr in the sanctuary. Jason will expose you to ideas you may never have considered, and he will affirm some of what you’re already doing. You’ll learn to connect with participants worshiping here and there, now and later.
