Blogging has really evolved a lot over time, especially since I first got into blogging about seven years ago.

We have previously written several lists of our favorite podcasts here on ChurchMag, but we have not tried to do a comprehensive list of podcasts that correlate at some capacity with the topic of church technology. So below is a list of all of the church tech podcasts we have found up to this date.
We have not arranged these podcasts by any type or style. Some of these will be loosely affiliated or humor based, others will be focused on a specific niche in church tech like hardware or marketing. Flow through them and see which ones grab your attention. Further, podcasts like Michael Hyatt or Carey Nieuwhof’s podcasts are not being included because they’re not tech oriented and This Week in Tech or others are not Christian and Church-oriented.

There are so many services out there these days for easy to create a design, websites, logo’s, etc. These services offer pre-built, out of the box solutions for small and startup businesses. But are these services actually effective in helping your organization succeed? Are they really bringing solutions to your marketing needs? Or are you going to regret using these services down the road?
Have you heard about home automation?
It’s basically the Intenet of Things becoming a reality with things like Google Home, Echo, Alexa, and others. Your coffee maker, TV, computer, refrigerator, fireplace, and living room lights are suddenly interconnected and you are given full control — or maybe given up full control?
On this episode, we talk about Home Automation and what they means for the Church today and tomorrow.
It can be really hard for me to worship at home, alone. My church has a full band, so worship on Sundays is both an event and an experience. As I’ve written before, I’ve never been to a Passion event, but after listening to their previous album and, now, having heard their newest release, Whole Heart, I definitely see why so many attend. Their music is fantastic. Their energy is high. His presence is palpable.
This new album, Whole Heart, offers no less, and in fact, it offers more. Here, take a taste:
Another week, another Snack Pack, let’s get this thing published before the week has ended!
