Right now, many leaders are wondering what the future of the Church looks like. Do we continue to practice digital discipleship and evangelism, or should we prepare for a return to in-person ministry?


According to Barna data, the answer is both:

Eighty-one percent of churched adults say in-person worship is very important to them.

Sixty-three percent believe churches should continue to leverage digital resources for discipleship.

This hybrid form of ministry is uncharted territory for most leaders, and that's why we've created Barna CoLab | Leading Hybrid Church, sponsored by Generis and Aspen Group.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will the live gatherings occur for CoLab?

For Barna CoLab Leading Hybrid Church, the live gatherings will be hosted on April 13, 27 and May 4 and 18 at 1P ET for 60 minutes. If you are unable to attend the live gathering, your team can still watch the recordings on demand in your online learning platform at a time that is convenient for you.

What is included in Barna CoLab?

Each Barna CoLab offers six weeks of online training and collaboration through four live virtual gatherings (which are recorded and made available on-demand), PDF resource downloads, bonus videos and the ability to interact in an online discussion forum with other participants.

What if I can’t attend the live virtual gatherings?

If you or your team are unable to attend the live virtual gatherings, you can watch them on-demand. There will be some advantages to participating live (including Q&A with the Barna team and special guests, plus live breakout rooms). However, through the online course platform Thinkific, you’ll still be able to interact and collaborate with others throughout the course of the program.

What if I want to add someone from my team after CoLab begins?

You can definitely add more participants from your team or church after your cohort launches for only $49/person (after you have reached the max number of your original purchase). Click here to contact us and we will help register additional participants.

What platform(s) will Barna CoLab be on?

We’ll use Zoom Webinars for the live virtual gatherings, so you’ll need a Zoom account to participate. Everything else in the program (on-demand sessions, downloads, discussion forum) will be on Thinkific, a high-quality online course platform. The Barna team will get you a Thinkific login that will give you access to everything you need to maximize your CoLab experience.

Will I have access to all of the CoLab material after the six-week CoLab is finished?

You’ll have access to everything in Thinkific for your specific cohort for 30 days after the six-week program is complete.

Can I share these resources with friends and fellow leaders who are outside the cohort?

We would prefer that only the people who register and pay to participate in the cohort have access to the videos and resources.
