I can remember many times sitting in the back row of my local church trying desperately to stay awake, and as I began to slump over and fall into blissful dreaming I would think: “Man, church is so boring.”
Let’s just say that as a teenager I didn’t quite “get it.”
And although I don’t particularly think that anymore, there are tons more who still do, and perhaps “Online Church” can help engage some of those people?
A recent study done shows that most people come online for “fun and learning,” which top the list.
Overall, though, these six categories, from common to least, were these:
- Have fun
- Express oneself
- Do business
Perhaps we have an opportunity to focus in on the things that really attract those that engage heavily online and create worthwhile experiences that capture their attention? Are we providing the right types of information and communicating it effetively?
