Technology can be used in churches and ministries to spread the message of Jesus Christ across the world. The Use of technology in the church enables effective communication, discipleship and community servicing.
Better communication achieved through technology
You can communicate directly with people in the church, through popular social networking websites like Facebook, Twitter and even your church’s blog.
For example, a Christian minster may not always be present physically to address his church especially if he pastors more than one branch.Also, he may not be able to carry out meetings with the entire church staff at once.
By using social media and digital technology, he can effectively communicate to everyone without being physically present in the church every time.
Also, interactive blogs and social media sessions enable the ministers to have direct and effective interaction with the people.
Technology boosts community establishment
By using technology, a great sense of community that doesn’t demand proximity can be established. Facebook page of the churches helps people to pray for each other without even knowing them.
Moreover, new attendees can effectively connect to other church members, through social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
Discipleship is made easier with technology
Modern technology like mobile apps and social networking sites are used by churches to help their members to access the sermon outline. Also, it enhances their discipleship experience in the churches.
