  • Becoming a Hybrid Church by Dave Daubert & Richard Jorgensen, 10/2020 – This book will take the reader through an overview of several areas of congregational ministry and reflect on how to begin to move every aspect of church life to a dual platform – on-the-ground and online. This “hybrid” kind of ministry will be the new norm for the next season in most congregation’s work. Written in crisp form, each chapter is concise and helps leaders begin to reframe their thinking on a particular aspect of congregational ministry. There are Bible readings, discussion questions and prayers at the end of each chapter making it perfect for leadership teams and small groups. Becoming a hybrid church is one path forward to both strengthen the church and reach new people with the gospel in bold, creative new ways. $ or free on Kindle
