    Introducing: Making Church Work

    Introducing: Making Church Work

    We're excited to be launching a brand new Fishhook podcast. 
    We’re also in the middle of a global pandemic, which makes it feel a little bit odd to celebrate something like a new podcast. We've been dreaming about this new podcast for a while, but just like you have been doing for the last few weeks, we’ve changed our strategy for this podcast and committed to doing something that feels authentic and hopeful for this moment in time. We also think hard, challenging circumstances give us the chance to tell stories of hope and overcoming.
    So, give episode one a listen!  Making Church Work In March, the reality of a global pandemic was beginning to settle in across the United States. In this initial episode of Making Church Work, we talk to two local pastors and how they’re responding and adapting in the beginning of this strange, unexpected season.

    85: Same Mission, New Tools

    85: Same Mission, New Tools

    As a church, your mission never changes. Collectively, we are all focused on helping people know and growing closer to Jesus. But what happens when the tools and technology we use change? Do we stick to what is familiar and established? Or should we expand our options and take a chance on new ways of thinking and serving? In this episode, Leah and Aimee join Adam to talk about how Fishhook has changed over time and what steps churches can take to staying focused on their mission even with a shifting landscape of technology and communication tools.
