It’s been about six months since I released my first eBook, “Get Disciple Making Right: 7 Ways Technology Helps Churches Win At Making Disciples.” The spirit of this eBook was about making a connection for the senior church leader between ministry and technology.
There is certainly an art to growing disciples because the central figure in the process is people. People grown, learn, and develop in different ways. However, there is also a science to it. We should be able to know if what we’re doing is making an impact, or at the very least moving us closer to our ultimate goal.
For so many years, I’ve witnessed churches use their ChMS merely as a collection device to mailing information and contribution details. If that’s all you need to do, you might want to check out a simple database or spreadsheet solution. ChMS is designed - or should be - to faciliate and foster community. As you build community, you fund ministry and make disciples. (That is the point, right?)
This eBook has significantly helped shaped my conversations with church leaders. It has become a central part of how we engage churches and talk about the intersection of technology and ministry. In fact, we’ve received so much positive feedback, we’re beginning to work on a second one.
If you haven’t read “Get Disciple Making Right,” you can do that here. And when you’re finished, let me know your thought. I’d love to hear your feedback.
How are you using technology to inform and validate ministry decisions in your church?
