Church Relevance recently posted a case study on implementing church technology. They broke down the process into three steps and you can download the entire technology case study, too. I highly recommend taking a look at this resource, as I think as technology has become a greater centerpiece in our lives, that it has also become closer to the core of the church. It’s important that while this happens, we remain focused on what’s really important and not make ill decisions. Never before has church tech been so important. There was a time when church tech was viewed as a silly little thing those young people did, to an essential facet to ministry.
In the Church Relevance post, Kent Shaffer comprised five questions to help us better analyze our tech pursuits. A very good list in my opinion:
5 Questions to Ask
- Is the Holy Spirit guiding me to pursue or avoid this opportunity?
- What is gained and what is lost if pursued?
- Does the Bible say anything about it?
- Does this opportunity help me better minister to the cultures I am called to reach?
- Does it bring value or is it just technology for technology’s sake?
These are stellar.
Would you add any other questions to this list?
