About

PATMOS is an initiative of PASTORIA to heal the future of the Church by integrating digital, diversity, and the dreams of the community.

A. Our Mission

The Church Must Change

PATMOS was formed to heal the future of the Church by integrating digital, diversity, and the dreams of the community with Christian ministry.

B. Our Vision

The Church Must Lead

PATMOS envisions a future in which the local church is a leading center of healing for the community – to actualize their spiritual and material creativity and innovation.

C. Our Story

James Loves The Church

From his earliest days at Claremont School of Theology to his final days as the Director of Communications and Innovation of the California-Pacific Conference of The United Methodist Church, James has kept in mind how the convergence of digital, diversity, and the dreams could address the decline of mainline Protestantism. The result was ultimately PATMOS.
