Pruning branches on a living plant helps it to be more productive, grow better fruit, and sustain the plant for the long haul.

As churches have become dispersed because of COVID-19 it has revealed the fruit of our labor when times felt much less complicated. The lessons we are learning in order to be church today can help us to get rid of overgrown programs, unproductive gatherings, and aimless neighboring.

There has been an apocalypse—an unveiling—of what we hold dear, what it means to be church, and how to incorporate the mission of God into our everyday lives. In 30, 60, 90 (or more!) days when we are able to gather in person again, what needs to go away and stay away?

What lessons are we learning about what it means to shepherd, pioneer, teach, call into relationship and share the good news need to go with us into our post-coronavirus church?

Today's leaders have been trained to draw a crowd and preach a good sermon, but few have been equipped for the future the church is facing. Many are starving for wisdom, guidance and grounded tools on how to cultivate new types of church bodies. When we explore doing this together within a learning cohort, it is a much richer experience than going at it alone.
