Synopsis of the Keynote

Tobias Treppmann writes:

Missional Design — crafting functional ministry models

The Keynote is about the challenges churches and ministries face in today’s rapidly changing contexts, and how we can find new ways to build adaptable, sustainable, and effective ministries.

Coming from a UX and Theology background, I want to look at how human-centered tools like design thinking and lean startup can serve as inspiration for how to deal with today’s contexts and innovate our way forward towards sustainable ministry models.
