Today’s Friday 5 is with Michael Sullivan. I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know him through twitter and through the blogosphere and I count him as a close internet bud.
The fact that I can say he’s an “close internet bud” makes me smile. Remember when you really didn’t make friends on the interwebs? Yeah, that used to suck.

Whatcha Working On?
Personally – Working on an Illustrator video tutorials site, similar to Lynda.com but free. I have a passion to teach others what I know, and I believe sharing that knowledge can only help. Hopefully it grows to a useful tool for aspiring designers.
Professionally – Changing the identity of my church, which recently changed it’s name. Also creating a new identity for a conference my church will soon be hosting.
How do you see Web Technology impacting The Kingdom?
In every way possible.
But specifically…The web constantly brings others closer, even though users are thousands of miles away. Right now, the ones benefiting from the web for Kingdom sake are leaders. Those called to stretch the everyday beliefs of what a church or the Church should be.
I believe the web challenges the regularity of the Church while commanding followers to understand God’s Kingdom is everywhere, even in the digital realm. Because of this, Christ’s presence only has room for growth.
Think of how far we as believers have come on the web, and dream of how far God can take us.
I work in the Student Ministry and there is not an easier method to contact with guys in my small group than through text messaging and the web. At the moment it seems that they live on the web, but are not connecting in ways (put nicely) that don’t benefit their relationship with Christ. I can only imagine how Christ will be shaping the patterns of students on the web in the near future. I want to see it happen.
