Stewarding Potential

Igniting Imagination for the New Wesleyan Ecosystem

A new spiritual landscape is emerging. One that is defined by a decline in religious affiliation and a corresponding rise in spirituality and spiritual hunger.

Wesleyan Impact Partners’ imperative in this new landscape is to spark imagination to steward the potential of the New Wesleyan Ecosystem, characterized by bringing God’s love to people where they are, building new friendships, and empowering all those who are pushing the boundaries of religious expression and the multitude of ways they are finding their own spiritual paths for themselves and their communities.

Phygital Fellows

Today's digital technologies may well be God's grace for driving the Gospel forward in a phygital public, a public that lives both physical and digital lives at the same time (physical+digital=phygital).

What if, a century from now, people say something like: “If the church had not embraced technologies like AI and Crowdsourcing, and new delivery systems like YouTube, Substack, and TikTok, would there have been a new movement of the Spirit that resulted in thriving congregations and flourishing communities?”

Adaptive Learning


TMF’s Leadership Ministry team had countless conversations with pastors, bishops, conference leaders, spiritual entrepreneurs and practitioners about the adaptive challenges the church is facing in the new spiritual landscape. The team identified “Five Muscles” congregations need to to thrive now and in the future.
