TryTank has released a short documentary film about what the church might be like in 10 years.
- It’s titled “The (possible) Future of the Church.”
Why it matters: While it is impossible to predict the future, strategic foresight allows us to look at plausible future scenarios. This way, leaders can plan with more insight into the future.
- TryTank’s executive director, the Rev. Lorenzo Lebrija, was trained as a foresight strategist (futurist) at the Institute for the Future in Palo Alto, CA.
Go deeper: The 10-minute film presents three church scenarios in 2032. They are:
- Distributed church
- Authentic do-it-yourself spirituality
- Blended reality experiences
The bottom line: “Our aim is for this film to act as a catalyst for conversation,” says Rev. Lebrija. “We must have honest conversations about the church’s future now.”
The new film is available on TryTank’s website: www.TryTank.org.
