Today’s Friday 5 is with Leo Wurschmidt. I’ve gotten to know Leo fairly quickly through video chat and it’s been great. We’ve even brainstormed some crazy web app ideas within the first few weeks…!
He also rocked the first “true” guest post here at ChurchCrunch… which I was very happy about.

Whatcha Working On?
Trying to better assist small business owners, whose computer skills only extend to checking their personal email and using MS Word, improve their web marketing. There seems to be a sizeable chasm between that subset small business owners and those of us who are technologically entrenched. I would like to try and close the gap.
How do you see Web Technology impacting The Kingdom?
The Internet is now allowing for an increased ability for Christians to fellowship with one another all across the world. I can now connect with other Christians anywhere in the world at almost any time. As a result, I can easily talk with them, support them, and learn from them.
I am also able to keep up with the needs of the poor and the persecuted Church like never before. For me, the Internet is akin to what the printing press did for Christians. The printing press created increased access to the Bible allowing more people to read the Scriptures for themselves instead of just being told what they were by the church.
Using current web technology I can now follow what is happening to Christians worldwide without having to solely rely on my home church for news and updates.
That is an amazing aspect of the web that is really impacting the Kingdom.
