Episode 253: Gentrification & Metropolitanization

The suburbs are becoming urbanized, which means that suburban pastors need to grow in their urban skills.

In Episode 253 of the NewChurches Q&A Podcast, we wanted to share snippets of Tim Keller’s talk at our last Church Planting Fellowship Network in November 2017 where he shared 5 trends in urban cities. In this episode, Tim talks specifically about the trends of gentrification & metropolitanization.

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • Why suburban pastors need to grow in their urban skills.
  • How church planters should respond to gentrification.
