BETWEEN is a digital ministry project focused on creating sacred human connection. Our church will work with the BETWEEN project to share inspiring faith-focused messages about human connection and reach thousands more people than we are currently reaching through the BETWEEN project. The project will utilize social media and advertising to get thousands of people around the world to sign up for an email list. We will share weekly short sermon videos (~5 min). We will share other inspirational messages throughout the week that are focused on the unique BETWEEN message of creating sacred connections.
BETWEEN is all about human connection. All of the content and messaging will teach people to see their moments of human connection (conversations, interactions, etc.) as sacred.
BETWEEN will start organically with the three partner churches during the pre-launch phase. We are asking all of our congregants of all three churches to share the promotional information and early content with their own networks. Post about it on social media. Make sure to sign up yourself. Talk about it with your friends. It is a VERY inclusive and welcoming message for anyone of any faith background.
BETWEEN provides multiple benefits for partner churches.
BETWEEN & TODAY I PRAY are on a mission to build a community of sacred connection. We dream of inspiring millions of people to live as though God is always right in the middle of our conversations and interactions. We’re all invited to create holy spaces anywhere. In every moment of human connection we can worship. Our everyday conversations should become cathedrals of connection. Our family dinners, coffee shop chats, and small talk in line at the grocery store become opportunities to commune with each other and with the power of the universe.
BETWEEN is a digital faith community creating sacred human connection. BETWEEN can be your “extra'' church experience. We envision creating the most open church on earth. It’s simple as we launch it… sign up for weekly 5 minute sermons and inspiring messages to improve your social connections. It all gets delivered via email, YouTube, and social media. What it could grow into is limitless. We’re excited to help people deepen their connections and find the divine in the space between them in normal everyday interactions. That’s where the “church” lives. Jesus said, “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” (Matthew 18:20 NIV) That’s our theology.
BETWEEN is run by the Today I Pray project. Today I Pray was initially created by Matt Mattson, a local Colorado friend, and a member of Columbine United Church. You can learn about Today I Pray by searching for @todayiprayforyou on social media or visiting www.todayiprayforyou.com.
Three local Colorado congregations are partnering in the initial launch of this project: Columbine United Church, Grace Presbyterian Church, and New Hope Presbyterian Church.
