Sideroom #3: Church Politics, People Power & Social Media

location Online | 11 AM-1 PM Sunday 15 September 2019 (BST)

What is the future of Church Politics & Organisation?

The Seventh-day Adventist Church as a global organisation is designed to place the local church in the driving seat when it comes to mission and leadership. Every 4-5 years (5 years globally) we elect administrators to serve the global movement to equip, resource and build the capacity of members towards mission.

In the run up to the 63rd Session of South England Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, Luke Whyte, Leader of Templeway Church conducted a 30-day satirical campaign to be elected as president of the South England Conference and in the process; stimulated cross-generational dialogue and engagement in the workings of the church as an organisation, set out a compelling manifesto for change and highlighted some of the more subtle and insidious challenges within the cultures and dynamics of our church as an organisation.

Join us for the next Sideroom conversation for a unique insight into Luke’s experiences conducting this campaign and what he plans to do next. We will collectively dig into some of his key learnings to frame a discussion about the future of church politics, people power and the role of social media.

Talk will be followed by breakout discussions where you can meet and chat to other like-minded people from around the world. .

Sideroom is a series of online meetups for Adventist/Christian changemakers, innovators and creatives who are curious about and want to actively shape the future of our church.

All around the world we are seeing many new ideas, experiments and faith expressions and the Sideroom exists to connect people and the ideas who will collectively drive the change we want to see.
