Tom Brackett is the Episcopal Church's Missioner for Church Planting, Ministry Redevelopment and Fresh Expressions for Church.
In this video Tom challenges viewers to reconsider Jesus' message of new life in light of 21st century church building.
Through his role with the wider Episcopal Church, Tom convenes networks of ecumenical and interfaith congregations and emergent church communities that are involved in challenging traditional church structure by placing increasing emphasis on discerning the Holy Spirit and sharing personal faith stories and less emphasis on rituals and systematic theology.
The Episcopal Church partners with Fresh Expressions of Church to foster the mission of new and unconventional faith communities and to train traditional clergy to be aware of evidence of the Holy Spirit at work outside the walls of the church.
This video was taken at the General Convention of the Episcopal Church held July 5 through 12 in Indianapolis.
