Today, we address a foundational question to everything we do online, “Is Digital Ministry Biblical?”

As a pastor, I’ve been asked several times why our church is focused on online ministry. They assume that online ministry isn’t real “church” and that by using online tools, we actually encourage people to stay home instead of attending church.

Part of the problem is our western understanding of church. We tend to view church as the building or the institution, and not as the people who attend. Throughout history, the church has adapted to technological advances and leveraged those changes to spread the Gospel.

I couldn’t find a good definition of digital ministry, so I came up with my one.

In this episode, we talk about

  • Determining why you want to do online ministry
  • Using digital and online tools to spread the Gospel and disciple believers
