Using the Internet to Gather, Connect and as a place of Mission

internetmission.gif Breakout session 6   Thursday 845 to 945am

Today is Internet Evangelism Day. More and more we need to see the internet as a mission field.  As our culture moves increasingly online, this presentation discusses how churches can be missionaries to unbelievers, gather the unchurched and connect with their community.  This is a session I did last week at the National New Church Conference.  The session wasn't recorded but a lot of Q&A occurred as much of the information was new for the audience.  Feel free to post if you have questions.

    Thanks for delivering this content and making it available and sharing the wealth. I feel like a novice when it comes to the web. I do feel confident navigating around the web myself, but too often I feel as a church, we are only scratching the surface in terms of leveraging it’s potential. Do you have someone either staff or volunteer that focus on communication?, if so, would you mind sharing their job description and what the scope of that responsibility looks like?

    Drew has been an inspiration for us to make our church website a place where people can gather, connect, and be ministered to. Our actual weekly services start on Sept 2 2007 but the church is already ‘gathering’ through our website that just went live a few weeks ago. We came up with what we call the ‘upside-down church’ to describe our interpretation of the New Testament church model that places more importance on people ministering to people 24-7 over the planning and conducting of weekend worship services.
