Every congregation needs Digital Ministry.

digitalministryIt’s no secret that nowadays, every congregation – even yours – needs a website and a social media presence. In fact, rapid developments in technology and the social sphere have created a new mission field which the church is reluctant to encounter.

One of my passions is encouraging and empowering congregations to see digital ministry as, well,  ministry!

See, it’s not just about doing ministry digitally; it’s also about who does it. Whether you already have a website or social media profile, or you’re reevaluating your church’s digital footprint, you have probably asked the hard question: should we do it ourselves, or should we outsource?

I know this because I’ve helped a number of congregations have that conversation. And I’ll tell you what I tell everyone else: do it yourself!

There are two reasons you should do it yourself.

And I can help with both.

First, there are people in your congregation with these gifts! These people have the creativity and skill needed to design and maintain a digital presence for your church, even if they need help to realize it. Second, a church’s digital presence is an often-neglected ministry of evangelism, outreach, and community-building.

Okay, so maybe you’ll need some guidance getting started. And that’s where I come in: my passion is training leaders. I’m can do all the work for you, sure – but I’d prefer to teach your team the basics and walk them through the process!

…need a third reason? Money matters. (I can help here, too.)

If you’re not sold, let me give you one more reason to do digital ministry in-house: money matters. Most website and marketing firms charge over $75 per hour. The tools I teach (and use myself) usually cost less than $150 per year. You can take that to the bank.

Let me help you. And let’s learn together.

I want to help your congregation see digital ministry as a means of faithfully engaging your community. And in doing so, I get to learn new ideas from you! So if you’re ready to have the conversation, or even if you just have questions, please contact me.

Your church should – and can – have a voice in the digital sphere. Let’s find that voice together.
