About Pivot Podcast

Over the past few years, church leaders have been forced to respond to several global crises in the blink of an eye. In a moment with little information and lots of uncertainty, churches reinvented nearly every aspect of church. This moment has ignited imagination, created collaborations, launched experiments, and dreamed of new possibilities.

Pivot invites church leaders to use this disruptive moment to reimagine how they think about church, ministry, and leadership—particularly, how the Christian faith is a resource for navigating this moment in history, ways to make spiritual sense of this time, and ideas for pivoting toward the emerging future.
