Technology as a means to “Be The Church”

Technology as a means to “Be The Church”

Since The Church was born two thousand years ago its  message of Christ’s love for us hasn’t changed, but our world never stops changing.  We are very aware that the world we live in now is very different than the days of the first Christians.  Back then the Word had to be preached in person, the Scriptures had to be written by hand and I took months to sail around the world.

Today with modern technology we can literally see and hear someone talking with us anywhere in the world in real time, we can go online from our mobile phones or tablets anywhere and be updated in an instant with world news as it happens.  Although sometimes it’s hard to keep up with the changes happening around us it is also an exciting time for The Church.

At no other time before have we been able to connect to one other like we can now and this is great news for The Church whose goal is introduce others to a relationship with Christ and in relationship with one another.  Churches today are utilizing 21st century such as:

Just a few weeks ago my wife and I dedicated our children at church in Tampa and my parents in the UK, over 4000 miles away were able to watch the service live in their living room!  How awesome that we can be connected like this.

Technology is being used like never before when it comes to serving others.  We are called to be the hands and feet of Christ outside of the four walls of the building.  Meet The Need’s use of 21st century technology is a key for us to “Be The Church” by connecting the body of Christ with those in need in our world!  It’s exciting to see the church coming together as one in serving others.  That’s what The Church should look like.  We are excited to partner with churches like Christ Fellowship in fulfilling Christ’s great commission in Matthew 28:19-20:

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

  1. Technology really is empowering a new kind of service paradigm. In the Atlanta area a couple organizations have worked hard to link churches in service manually – lots of work.

    Technology like Meet the Need makes that even easier. I wonder if there is an opportunity to educate folks on different methods to serve others, such as featuring materials (or links to materials form the network) on different kinds of outreach/mercy ministry. Maybe spur people to consider new ways to serve.

    Our ministry is trying this approach – sharing with churches how to do home repairs ministry and giving them the resources to get started and partner with other churches.

    How cool would it be for MtN to have different types of ministry materials available to drive churches deeper in service and deeper into the community?
