Innovating and Imagining Christianity for the 21st Century


Future and Faith: "Thinking INSIDE the Box"

What are the new frontiers of faith? How are people finding new ways of making sense of Christianity and God in the WAKE of so much confusion, nonsense and finding themselves on the undesirable side of religious history? Join Maria French and Barry Taylor as they come to you directly from the heart of Belfast from WAKE, a boutique conference on Radical Theology, taking place at the Black Box, to talk about some of the ways in which people are exploring and diving into the abyss for the sake of the future. See the archive conversation. Come ready for the future...or at least curious!


Hatchery LA defines Spiritual Entrepreneurship as: Responding to the shifts within culture and the world, motivated by the goal of common good, Spiritual Entrepreneurship is an invitation to engage new questions of God and new ways of engaging God that promote community, sustainability and viability. Spiritual Entrepreneurship innovates and iterates to anticipate and address the changing needs of spirituality in the 21st century.


Join us as we start a new online cohort of Spiritual Entrepreneurs. An hour of lecture and Q&A each week. You can tune in live or watch at your convenience. You will have full access to the Hatchery LA team of instructors as well as be given valuable resources to move your venture forward. Develop a connection to a wider community of Spiritual Entrepreneurs with shared language and a shared vision.


Here is some of what you can expect to engage in this course that explores this new discipline and framework:
  • 12 weeks, fully online with live lectures each week that are then archived video and downloadable audio
  • Develop an understanding of the cultural shifts and spiritual implications while engaging in God and community in the 21st-century
  • Discovery how to innovate your theology in the context of your ministry/project
  • Explore the benefits of Human Centered Design in a world of ministry uncertainty
  • Rethink how you minimize risk, ask the right questions and address sustainability
  • Experience the community of a cohort with other dreamers and risk takers creating spiritual transformation

If you have been on the fence about joining us then maybe this is your moment.  Maybe you are rethinking how ministry is done.  Perhaps you are starting to ask new questions of God and engaging community?  You might be wondering what the future of all of this looks like.  If this is you, we would invite you to join us.  If you think you don’t have the time, I promise you do.  We have designed the course with the busiest of persons in mind!
