Mission in the Age of Digitalisation

Metaverse, Metamodernism, and Metanarrative


  • Guichun Jun Oxford Centre for Mission Studies, Oxford, UK


We are living in a transitional period where the metaverse is expected to shape our future in all aspects of our lives. In particular, the metaverse and other relevant computing technologies have already led us into a new era of Christian mission. There is no doubt that the metaverse is a significant mission field for the next generation. Churches and mission agencies need to recognise the urgency of developing practical strategies and methods for mission in the metaverse. However, it is equally vital for them to realise some of the negative trends manifested in the metaverse, which need attention from cultural, social, and theological perspectives in order to consider missional approaches to deal with the underlying thoughts underpinning the trends.
