We told you this last summer we would be doing a book club and after some time letting the content simmer and have discussions on the backend, we are ready to share the series.
As previously shared, our first ChurchMag Book Club book is Building A StoryBrand by Donald Miller. (Check the bottom of the article to find out how you can get your own copy of the book for free.)
Back in 2010, you could just about get away with having a webpage with one or no images. Good content and the benefit of faster loading web pages just about balanced out the benefit that visuals brought to the user experience. But in 2018, visuals are essential.

This is a tough article for me to write. And by the end of this article, I will be asking for your help. I really need it.
Let me give you a little visual that led to me sitting down to write this article right now. On Saturday nights, I normally take maybe two or three minutes, go into a couple of pastor Facebook groups to share my latest blog article on another of my site and then go on to other things in my life. I’m not spamming, I look for posts on the specific topic I blogged about.
The website is ChurchAndMentalHealth.com and the topic is sharing about a Christian Suicide Prevention Ministry. I do one search on suicide and 35 posts come up just for the last month. Smaller numbers in other groups, but each was more than I expected… That one caught me off guard.

John Crist has a satire video that… feels a little too honest. I also feel the video is a bit creepy.
Hopefully, you can see the humor in it and we can take social media a little less serious in the day-to-day.
The Church Tech scene has changed and evolved over the past ten years — what does church tech look like, today?
Talk of church websites and basic sound design were once a premium that few churches could afford. Fast forward to today, and each of us hold more technology in our pockets than we could have ever dreamed possible.
So where does that leave us?
