Mark Sayers: The church and culture guru on secularism, tech, relevance and revival

November 22, 2019

On this week’s show, Mark Sayers, the pastor of Red Church in Melbourne, Australia talks to Premier Christianity’s Sam Hailes about his life and ministry. Mark speaks on a variety of topics related to church and culture, including his own experience of failed church plants, the dangers of “digital capitalism” and his definition of revival as ‘renewal gone viral’. He also opens up about his own mental health struggles and shares a touching story of how waking up to graffiti plastered across his church building one Easter Sunday led to an unexpected moment of Christian unity.
