Episode 19: Episode 19: The Gathered and Sent Church with Rev. Janet Durrwachter
In the post-Christendom West, many church leaders struggle to organize in ways that allow them to both gather together for worship as a local Body, and equip disciples to be sent into the world. Many other leaders spend so much time debating whether the church should be attractional or missional in form. Few leaders, however, embrace the needed both/and approach. A church that sees and lives into the need to bother gather, and be sent into the world.
In this episode, Rev Janet Durrwachter, Executive Pastor at First Church in Williamsport, PA discusses her role and passion in this large and innovative church that followed God's lead, and has been living into a gathered and sent form for many years.
